Preparation

Roast the potatoes
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Cut the potatoes into bite-size pieces. In a large bowl, combine the potatoes with a drizzle of oil; add the cornmeal, then season with ½ the spice blend and S&P; toss until well coated. On a lined sheet pan, arrange the seasoned potatoes in a single, even layer and roast in the oven, stirring halfway through, 20 to 25 minutes, until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven and set aside in a warm spot.

Mise en place
While the potatoes roast, finely chop the cilantro leaves and stems. Zest and juice the lime. In a small bowl, make the zesty mayo by combining the mayonnaise and up to ½ the lime zest (to taste); season with a pinch of the remaining spice blend and S&P to taste.

Prepare & cook the patties
In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, ½ the cilantro and ½ the Cotija cheese; season with the remaining spice blend and S&P. Gently mix to combine. Form the mixture into 2 patties of equal size (double for 4 portions). In a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the patties* to the pan and cook, 3 to 5 minutes per side, until cooked through. Transfer to a plate and set aside in a warm spot. Reserve the pan.

Make the slaw
While the patties cook, in a large bowl, combine 1 tbsp lime juice with 3 tbsp oil (double the lime juice and oil for 4 portions); season with S&P to taste. Add the carrots, cabbage and as much remaining cilantro as you’d like; season with any remaining lime juice and S&P to taste.

Finish & serve
To the sheet pan of potatoes, add the remaining Cotija cheese and as much remaining lime zest as you’d like; toss to combine. Divide the toasted bun bottoms and roasted potatoes between your plates. Top each bun bottom with a spoonful of the zesty mayo, a cooked burger patty, as much slaw as you’d like and a bun top. Serve any remaining zesty mayo and slaw on the side. Bon appétit!
