Just a simple request for when people make suggestions for substitutions--please include amounts! I made these burgers tonight and like one of the other reviewers I had no chipotle peppers but I did have the spice available. Unfortunately I had no idea how much to substitute for the chipotle pepper and ended up adding waaaaayyy too much spice to my burgers. They were blazing hot! I used 1 teaspoon of spice to 1 1/4 pound of ground sirloin (for four servings). So if anyone suggests a substitution please also suggest a quantity to use. I know I would really appreciate the help and maybe others would too. I enjoyed the burgers and I will give them another shot with either real chipotles or lower the amount of spice I use.
We LOVE this recipe and have even used it with ground turkey. I didn't follow the recipe exactly as I didn't have chipotle sauce or peppers. And, after the first time, I also decreased the liquid smoke to 1 tsp because it seemed to be a little strong. Amazing!
Tried these tonight- was going to make a meatloaf from the recipe as I didn't have any buns. The more I read the reviews I realized that these would be at their peak from grilling. So we had the burgers minus the buns and cheese. We got to taste the true flavor. Very very tasty. I might use a teeny bit less chipotles in adobo next time. My word on that ingredient is this-buy a small can put the remainder in an airtight container and keep it in the frig. I have been using the same container for about 6 months. Believe me it keeps its flavor and kick! And there's not really any great substitute when a recipe calls for it. One question for the others- what did they use as "grill seasoning?" I don't have any on hand as we do most of our own combinations to make rubs etc. I just used some paprika chili powder and smoked salt. We really loved these. This recipe elevates burgers to "company" status. Yum.
I used all the seasoning as noted except for the chilies as we are wimps in that department. I topped the burgers with Gouda cheese the last few minutes on the grill. I really liked the flavors of this burger and will make it again.
These are wonderful tasting burgers! This is the 3rd time that I've used this recipe. The 2nd time I used ground turkey breast instead of beef. It was drier but still very good flavor. I've also combined all of the ingredients (except the beef) in a bowl and made a paste like out of it and rubbed it on some fish that I was going to saute. It too was pretty darned good! The smokiness and heat of the chipotles combined with the liquid smoke is quite a tasty combo. I really like your recipe. Thanks! I would have never thought of this on my own!
We really enjoyed these burgers. I used onion powder since I don't care for onion and McCormick hamburger seasoning for the grill seasoning but it was too salty so next time I will make my own or use something else. I cut this in half for just the 3 of us. The canned chipotle peppers though barely had any adobo sauce so I scraped up what I could and used it. I used La Costena brand. I cooked this in a skillet/stovetop instead of grilling this time. Thanks Janine these were good and we will be having these again.
Incredible seasoning combination! I don't care for the heat of the chipotle peppers or adobo sauce so I subbed about a teaspoon of smoked paprika. I think I used a little less worcestershire sauce as well. These might be the best burgers I have made. Thanks for the wonderful recipe!
