"I saw similar burgers made on television for a sports event. I didn't have buns, so I made patty melts instead. I will never make this in plain burger form again!"

  1. Mix together the ground beef, chili seasoning mix, 2 minced chipotle peppers with adobo sauce, and the beer in a bowl. Divide the mixture evenly into three patties.
  2. Stir together the mayonnaise and 1 minced chipotle pepper with adobo sauce in a small bowl. Divide the mixture between the bread slices and spread evenly. Place a slice of pepperjack cheese on top of the mayonnaise mixture on each slice of bread.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the patties in the skillet until no longer pink in the center, 5 to 7 minutes each side for well done. Remove each burger to a slice of bread, sandwiching them with the remaining slices.
  4. Drain the skillet, reserving 2 tablespoons of the grease. Heat the reserved grease in the skillet over medium-high heat. Grill the sandwiches in the skillet until the bread is golden brown and the cheese is melted, 1 to 2 minutes per side.

We did not care for these. I think the chili powder was way too overwhelming. I followed the recipe to a T.

I made the hamburgers for this recipe exactly as stated and we can't put our finger on it, but we felt there was something that was a little too overpowering in the flavor of the meat. We like ...

I could not find any chipotle adobe sauce in our small town. I used Taco Bell chipotle dressing I had on hand. I also added some onion,crushed red peppers and cayenne pepper for our liking. My h...

The burger part of these is definitely five-star and I'm basing my review on that, not my changes. I didn't measure the beer, so probably used a bit more than 1/2 an ounce. They were spicy witho...

I enjoyed this different twist on the every day burger. I thought the heat was right, but if you cant take medium heat salsa, you may want to back off on the chipotle pepper to just one in the m...
