Chipotle Jack Burgers are the perfect reason to fire up your grill! An ordinary burger gets superpowers

These burgers are packed full of flavor from the seasonings and chipotle powder, topped off with zesty, melty pepper jack cheese, and smeared with smoky chipotle mayo. Add in some guac and pico and….Boom! Pow! Flavor!



For the burgers:

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons seasoned salt
  • 2 teaspoons chipotle powder
  • 2 tablespoons rolled oats
  • 4 slices pepper jack cheese
  • 4 brioche buns

For the chipotle mayo:

  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke

Topping ideas:

  • Guacamole
  • Pico de gallo
  • Sour cream
  • Tomatoes
  • Lettuce


For the burgers:

  1. Preheat your grill to a medium-high heat, about 450-500 degrees. . In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, egg, seasoned salt, chipotle powder and rolled oats. Gently mix together until completely combined.
  2. Evenly divide the meat mixture into fourths. Roll each fourth into a ball in your hands and gently flatten to desired burger thickness, making sure the center has a slight divot to ensure even cooking.
  3. Place the burgers on the grill and grill on each side for about 5 minutes, or until desired doneness is achieved. Place the cheese slices directly on top of the burgers within the last couple minutes of cooking to get a melty cheese. If you like your buns to be grilled as well, place them on the top grate of the grill at this time until the cheese is melted and the burgers are cooked through.

For the chipotle mayo:

  1. In a small bowl, stir to combine the mayo, chipotle powder and liquid smoke. Build the burgers by smearing the chipotle mayo on the bottom sides of the buns, placing the burgers on top and then followed by desired toppings and the top bun. Enjoy!
