I mentioned in last week’s birthday post that I made chipotle cheeseburgers for the Chris’ party.  So many of you asked me to post the recipe so here it is.  I love spicy food and these really hit the spot.  Cheeseburgers are a grill staple all summer long, try this recipe for something new and special…

Chipotle Cheeseburgers

  • 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 2 teaspoons chipotles in adobo sauce
  • 1/4 cup beer of choice
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 slices pepper jack cheese
  • For Chipotle Mayonnaise:1 1/2 teaspoons chipotles in adobo sauce, 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  1. In a mixing bowl, stir to combine ground beef, 2 teaspoons chopped chipotles, and beer.
  2. Wet your hands to prevent sticking and shape into 4 patties slightly larger than the buns; set aside covered in refrigerator if not cooking immediately.
  3. For Mayonnaise: Remove peppers from can (you may want to use rubber gloves if sensitive to peppers). Carefully split open and scrape out seeds. Finely chop peppers; set aside.
  4. In a small bowl, stir together 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped chipotle peppers and mayonnaise; set aside covered in refrigerator until ready to use.
  5. Serve with chipotle mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard, tomatoes, or avocados and a toasted bun. Enjoy!
