Chipotle Burger

Just a quick Monday night post….

I love a great burger. And I think the best burgers are the ones you make at home. Tonight we had Chipotle Burgers – and man, were they good! A spicy twist on a classic.

For 4 burgers

  • 1 1/4 Lb. ground beef (80/20 fat ratio)
  • 3 oz. chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (half a small can)
  • 1/4 tsp. each salt, pepper, cumin

Combine all ingredients, and form into 4 patties. Grill to desired temperature.

Garlic Mayo

  • 1/4 C.¬†mayonnaise
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • chives, thinly sliced
  • salt, pepper, cumin to taste

Combine all ingredients. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.


  • 4 Italian style hamburger buns (I use Arnold brand)
  • 4 burgers, cooked
  • garlic mayo
  • 4 slices bacon
  • 4 Oz. Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
  • onion, thinly sliced
  • cilantro leaves (4 – 5 per burger)

Top each burger with 1 oz. of cheese, leave in grill for 1 minute to melt. Toast hamburger buns on the grill, 2 – 3 minutes. Spread garlic mayo onto bottom buns. Top with burger, followed by bacon, onion, then cilantro. Cover with top bun.
