Chipotle Cheeseburgers

I originally found this on the Food Network site & changed it up a bit.  They can be spicy, so be careful.
Start with 1 1/2lbs of ground beef & sprinkle with Tex-Mex chili seasoning.  Add the chopped Chipotle Peppers, salt & pepper and beer.  Combine gently.  I hate touching raw meat, so I am gloved up during this process.

Divide into 4 even portions and let sit while the griddle is getting warm. I heat mine up to 350/360 degrees.

The delicious finished product.  I used American cheese this time around.  I have added notes at the bottom if you want to make them spicier.

1 1/2lbs Lean Ground Beef
2 Tbls Tex Mex Chili Seasoning (I use McCormick's)
2 tsp Chipotles in Adobo Sauce
1/4 cup Beer (your choice)
Salt & Pepper
Pepper Jack Cheese
Chipotle Mayonnaise, see recipe below

In a mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, chili seasoning, chopped chipotle peppers and beer.  Shape into 4 even portions & set aside.  Heat the griddle pan to 350 degrees, or grill outside.  Season the patties with salt & pepper & cook until done the way you like (4-5 minutes per side for medium)  2-3 minutes before they are done, add the cheese.

Chipotle Mayonnaise
1 1/2 teaspoons Chipotle Peppers
3/4 cup Mayonnaise

Slit open the peppers & remove seeds (leave in for spicy)
Finely chop the peppers.
Stir the mayo & peppers together and put in the fridge until ready to use.

NOTE: You can control the heat by reducing or increasing the amount of peppers in the burgers.  Remember, if you remove the seeds, they are likely to be a little less spicy.
