Chipotle Cheeseburger

Chipotle Cheeseburger Recipe
The 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.

6 Servings

1/4 cup GOYA Mayonnaise
1 chipotle pepper from 1 can (12 oz.) GOYA Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce, finely chopped, plus ¼ cup chipotle sauce from can
3 tablespoons GOYA Minced Garlic, divided
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh cilantro
GOYA Adobo All-Purpose Seasoning, to taste
2 pounds ground beef (80% lean)
1 teaspoon GOYA Vegetable Oil
6 slices cheddar cheese
6 hamburger buns
6 1/4”-slices red onions
6 1/2”-slices tomatoes
6 lettuce leaves


Prep: 15 Minutes
Cook: 30 Minutes

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


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).


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.


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