  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Cut potatoes into 1" dice.

    Coarsely chop cilantro (no need to stem).

    Peel and halve shallot. Thinly slice.

    Halve poblano pepper lengthwise, seed, and slice into 1/2” strips. Poblano peppers can vary in spice level; most are mild, but a few can be quite hot. Wash hands and cutting board after prepping.

  2. 2

    Roast the Vegetables

    Place potatoes on prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 tsp. olive oil. Spread into a single layer on one side.

    Place poblano on empty half of baking sheet and toss with 1 tsp. olive oil and a pinch of salt. Massage oil and salt into poblano. Spread into a single layer on their side. Roast in hot oven until starting to brown, 10-12 minutes.

    Carefully remove from oven and gently toss both vegetables. Sheet will be hot! Use a utensil. Roast again until browned and tender, 15-18 minutes.

    Toss or gently combine roasted potatoes with fajita seasoning until coated.

    While vegetables roast, continue recipe.

  3. 3

    Cook the Burgers

    Form ground beef into two evenly-sized patties, about 4" in diameter. Season both sides with 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil and patties to hot pan. Cook until browned, 4-6 minutes on one side.

    Flip patties, and top with cheese. Cook until cheese is melted and patties reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

    Transfer burgers to a plate. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

  4. 4

    Cook the Shallot

    Return pan used to cook burgers to medium-high heat.

    Add 1 tsp. olive oil and shallot to hot pan. Stir occasionally until tender, 3-4 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

  5. 5

    Toast Rolls and Finish Dish

    Place rolls directly on oven rack in hot oven and toast until lightly browned, 3-4 minutes.
