These open-faced burgers may not be low in calories, but man, are they flavorful! And, of course, the addition of Café Campesino coffee to the recipe makes the dish. You could do one better and choose White Oak Pastures Georgia-grown, humane and grassfed ground beef.
Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a medium skillet. Sauté onion and garlic in oil over low heat until soft but not brown.
Add chili sauce and jalapeno relish. Bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer 5 minutes.
Stir in coffee. Keep on low heat 5 to 10 minutes but do not boil after adding coffee. Remove from heat. Keep warm.
Shape meat into 6 thick patties and season with salt and pepper or Coffee Spice Rub.
Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large skillet. Brown in oil over high heat. Turn patties; lower heat. Cook 5 to 10 minutes.
Place on toasted buns. Cover with hot sauce and top with grated cheese. Serve immediately!
