A burger with a fiery twist! 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.

Ingredient Checklist

Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

Cooking tip from LA COCINA GOYA

Perfectly Seasoned Meat – Every time! You added GOYA(R) Adobo All-Purpose Seasoning the burger meat, but since the beef is still raw, you can't taste to see if the seasoning is to your liking. The easiest way: Scoop out a spoonful of meat, form into a small hamburger shape and cook on an oiled skillet until cooked-though. Then, taste and adjust.

Used ground turkey instead of beef omitted the cilantro as we don't like it. Otherwise fixed as written. They didn't stay together very well. Maybe needed an egg mixed in. We never have our burgers on bread so just served them up. Read More

I didn't like these. I think it is the chipotle. I guess I'm not a fan of that pepper. My husband thought they were okay but I will not be making these again. Read More

These burgers were great. Flavorful and not dry at all! But the way we had them was slightly different from this recipe. I had my brother cook them because I had a headache. He's autistic and not that great of a cook... but I figured this recipe would be simple enough for him to make. He didn't measure his ingredients... I believe he used about a half cup of mayo and he used the entire can of peppers and sauce.. which I figure was about 4 peppers and about a half cup of sauce. Instead of making the chipotle mayo as the directions calls for he mixed everything together (the mayo ground beef garlic peppers sauce etc). He also cooked them in the oven instead of the grill. The burgers still came out great. I was worried that using all the peppers would make the patties too spicy but they turned out to have just a slight nice kick. The only downer was that we used cheap ground beef (73/27) so the pan was full of grease when they were done. Next time I will use leaner beef and cook them on the grill so that the fat can drip off the patties while they cook. 4/19/12 update: I made these burgers again myself a few days ago and they were great. I doubled the recipe used ground turkey instead of beef mixed the mayo w/ the meat added 1 egg used the whole can chipotle and sauce (small can- I think its about 4 oz or so). I added more cilantro... maybe a 1/2 cup & cooked patties in oven. The burgers were great & not dry thanks to the mayo in the meat mixture. Read More

I have been making this before this recipe was added to the site. I have a few modifications. First you can used fresh grated garlic (grate as finely as possible) or use garlic powder or dried minced garlic which seems to work better and not have as much of a bite as the fresh garlic. Also don't use their special seasoning as it is basically salt and pepper with artificial filler. Add a dash of onion powder if you want but skip the filler and control the amount of salt yourself. ALSO add chipotle chopped and the adobo sauce as needed tasting as you go along. Everyone has a different heat level and this is the only way to ensure you don't make something you can't handle.
