Chipotle Cheeseburger

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.

Serves 6

Prep time: 15 min.

Total time: 30 min.


¼ cup GOYA® Mayonnaise

1 chipotle pepper from 1 can (12 oz.) GOYA® Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce, finely chopped, plus ¼ cup chipotle sauce from can

3 tbsp. GOYA® Minced Garlic, divided

1 tbsp. finely chopped fresh cilantro

GOYA® Adobo All-Purpose Seasoning, to taste

2 lbs. ground beef (80% lean)

1 tsp. GOYA® Vegetable Oil

6 slices cheddar cheese

6 hamburger buns

6 ¼”-slices red onions

6 ½”-slices tomatoes

6 lettuce leaves


1. In medium bowl, stir together mayonnaise, 1 tbsp. chipotle sauce, 1 tsp. garlic, cilantro and adobo; cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
2. 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”-thick patties. (Take care not to over-handle meat or else it will toughen).
3. 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.
4. To assemble, divide patties evenly among bottom buns; top with onion slice, tomato slice, lettuce and top bun spread with reserved chipotle mayonnaise.
Tip By La Cocina Goya

Perfectly Seasoned Meat – Every time!

You added GOYA® 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.
