These Chipotle Burgers with adobo sauce and chipotle peppers have a wonderful smoky flavor that is even more enhanced by grilling.

I will often substitute a spicy jack cheese for the cheddar and serve with avocado and cilantro. I also add a little extra adobo sauce when I serve these burgers.

You can cook the patties on a cast iron skillet but the best way is on a grill. Make sure to preheat to get that perfect char.

Flip the burgers just once, let them cook and once again, you want that char.

Add the cheese a few minutes before they are done. You want the cheese to just melt a little and not slide off into the pan.

I grill red onions and sometimes jalapenos while I cook the burgers.
