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 flavourful 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.


1/4 cup Goya Mayonnaise

1 pepper from a can of Goya Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce, finely chopped

1/4 cup sauce from a can of Goya Chipotle Chiles in Adobo Sauce

3 tbsp Goya Minced Garlic, divided

1 tbsp finely chopped fresh cilantro

Goya Adobo All-Purpose Seasoning, to taste

2 lbs ground beef (80 per cent lean)

1 tsp Goya Vegetable Oil

6 slices Cheddar cheese

6 hamburger buns

6 (1/4 inch thick) slices red onion

6 (1/2 inch thick) slices tomato

6 lettuce leaves


1. In medium bowl, stir together mayonnaise, 1 tbsp chipotle sauce, 1 tsp garlic, cilantro and Adobo; cover and refri-gerate 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 six portions; form into 1in-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 five 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.
