These are SPICY! I am not a fan of eating something that makes my mouth burn BUT I loved these. I love chipotles and they really give the burgers tons of flavors. Since this is a huge burger, you really need only one per person ~ in fact, I ate about half and was full. If you like spice, give them a try!
Cheese Stuffed Chipotle Burgers
1 (7 ounce) can chipotles in adobo sauce, undrained
2 lbs ground beef
2 tsps steak seasoning
1/2 (10 ounce) pkg Cheddar cheese (I used the cheese that already comes cut into small pieces ~ Cracker Barrel, I think)
4 burger buns
Empty can of chipotles into a small food chopper or processor or blender and process until smooth.
Combine 4 tsps of the chipotle puree, ground beef and steak seasoning in a large bowl until combined. Do not over mix or your burgers will be tough. Shape mixture into 8 patties, roughly the same size. Place 1 slice of cheese on 4 patties. Place a patty on top of each slice of cheese and press edges to seal. Chill for 30 minutes or so.
Make an indent in the top burger with your thumb so you won’t get that burger bump. Grill until cooked to your desired degree of doneness.
Serve on buns with your favorite toppings.
Makes 4 burgers.
