Chipotle Cheeseburger

A Burger with a Fiery TwistThe classic cheeseburger gets a tasty update with the addition of GOYA® Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce. These chipotle chiles are jalapeno peppers that have been dried, smoked, and then packed in a flavorful sauce made of tomatoes and other spices. Here, we add these special peppers twice - first to the mayonnaise, which gets spread on the buns, and then mixed into the meat before its grilled. And don't skip the red onions and tomatoes: they add a sweet, crisp bite.

Ingredients

1/4 cup GOYA® Mayonnaise

1 chipotle pepper from 1 can (12 oz.) GOYA Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce, finely chopped, plus 1/4 cup chipotle sauce from can

3 tbsp. GOYA Minced Garlic, divided

1 tbsp. finely chopped fresh cilantro

GOYA Adobo All-Purpose Seasoning, to taste

2 lbs. ground beef (80% lean)

1 tsp. GOYA Vegetable Oil

6 slices cheddar cheese

6 hamburger buns

6 1/4"-slices red onions

6 1/2"-slices tomatoes

6 lettuce leaves

Directions

1. In medium bowl, stir together mayonnaise, 1 tbsp. chipotle sauce, 1 tsp. garlic, cilantro and Adobo; cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

2. In large bowl, gently mix together beef, chopped chipotle, 3 tbsp. chipotle sauce, remaining garlic and Adobo until combined. Divide meat into 6 portions; form into 1"-thick patties. (Take care not to over-handle meat or else it will toughen).

3. Prepare grill to medium-high heat, grease with oil (or heat oil in medium skillet over medium-high heat). Cook burgers, flipping once, until charred and cooked to desired doneness (about 12 minutes total for medium rare). Add cheese to patties about 5 minutes before taking them off grill.

4. To assemble, divide patties evenly among bottom buns; top with onion slice, tomato slice, lettuce and top bun spread with reserved chipotle mayonnaise.
