Foodie Friday ~ Chipotle Cheeseburger


1/4 cup Goya Mayonnaise

1 chipotle pepper from a can of Goya Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce, finely chopped

1/4 cup sauce from a can of Goya Chipotle Chiles in Adobo Sauce

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 inch thick) slices red onions

6 (1/2 inch thick) slices tomatoes

6 lettuce leaves


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 inch-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.
