  1. Heat a grill to medium-high. Shape the ground chuck into four 6-ounce burger patties and set aside.
  2. Toast the buns on the grill. Place a lettuce leaf and a tomato slice on each bottom bun. Set aside.
  3. Season the burger patties with salt and pepper, and then grill. After flipping the patties, top each with a spoonful of Chipotle Onion, followed by a spoonful of Spicy Chile Pepper Medley, a squirt of Chipotle Ketchup and a slice of pepper jack cheese. Cover the grill and cook until the cheese is slightly melted.
  4. Scoop the patties onto the bottom buns. Top each with two slices of bacon and a spoonful of Habanero Relish. Slather the top buns with Sriracha Mayo and place on top of the burgers.

Chipotle Onion:

  1. Saute the red onions in the olive oil until soft. Stir in the chipotle puree and cook for 1 minute. Add the chardonnay and cook, stirring, for another minute. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Spicy Chile Pepper Medley:

  1. Pan fry the jalapenos, serranos and habaneros in the olive oil until soft. Let cool for 10 minutes, then peel off the skins. Slice the chiles lengthwise and mix together.

Chipotle Ketchup:

  1. Mix the ketchup, chipotle puree and salt and pepper to taste until fully blended.

Habanero Relish:

  1. Pulse the habaneros and garlic in a food processor until coarsely chopped, 5 to 10 seconds. Add the tomatoes, onions, lemon juice, red pepper flakes and 1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Pulse until blended and finely chopped. Add the cilantro sprigs and pulse until cilantro is coarsely chopped.

Sriracha Mayo:

  1. Stir together the mayonnaise, Sriracha, lemon juice and a pinch of salt and pepper.
