- 2 lbs Hamburger
- 6 Hamburger Buns

Here I am cooking again with one of my favorite peppers the adobo pepper. This is by far one of our favorite ways to make burgers.
I like to cook these burgers in my cast iron skillet, however you can use an indoor or outdoor grill for this recipe as well. I find the cast iron skillet sears the meat perfectly creating a strong burger that doesn’t fall apart as easily as they could on a grill.
Don’t skip on the adobo sauce it really makes this burger stand out. Bubba says, you can find it in any international aisle at your local grocer, typically near the Mexican food area. Serve alongside a delicious potato salad, see recipe below for that one.
Mexican Dried Chipolte Chilies, Did you know Chipotles are actually smoked dried jalapeños?
This is what you will be looking for, same stuff just in a can with some sauce.
Optional *add 1/2 tsp of adobo sauce from the can per burger, for extra heat. *Layer on the cooked onions, along 1/2 tsp of adobe sauce from the can per burger. Top with the condiments that you like, such as Lettuce, Mayonnaise, Mustard, Ketchup, Relish, Pickles, Raw Onions etc.

To make the Chipotle Burgers:
Remove 2 chipotles from the can (remove as many seeds as possible) then in a blender puree 2 (chipotle peppers in adobo sauce) and combine them in a large bowl with your ground beef and lime juice. Next add in your onion powder, garlic powder, and salt/pepper to taste.
Then slice 2 large onions and fry them in 1 tsp of butter till golden brown for about 15 minutes.
Mix and shape your hamburger patties into roughly 1/2 inch thick patties and place into a hot skillet or on the grill.
Season with salt and pepper and cook burgers medium rare to well done.
