Chipotle Burgers

If you like the "kick" that comes from Chipotle peppers, you will love these.

Sorry I don't have a picture, but we started eating and OOPS! it was too late to get a picture. lol

Chipotle Burgers
From: Our best bites

1 1/2 lbs ground beef (20% is best for burgers, so that they don't get too dry)
1 1/2 Chipotle peppers from canned chipotles in adobo sauce
1 1/2 Tb Adobo sauce from can of peppers
1/4 cup minced onion or fresh grated onion (I used minced)
1tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Chipotle-lime Mayo
1/2 cup mayonaise
2 tsp lime juice
1 1/2 tsp adobo sauce from canned chipotle peppers
2 Tb chopped fresh cilantro (I did not use this because I didn't have any)

Make Chipotle sauce ahead of time and refrigerate.

For burgers put all ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Use your hands if you need to. Form patties and barbecue until done. Put cheese on each patty if you want a cheesy chipotle burger. We only had american cheese in the drawer and it was yummy.

Place on a bun with whatever trimmings you like. Don't forget to add the Chipotle mayo sauce. It really helps give more of that "chipotle kick."
