Serves: 4¼lbs. burgers
  • 16 oz. ground beef (I used 96/4)
  • ¼ tsp. ground pepper
  • 2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, finely chopped (Use more to make hotter)
  • 1 tbsp. chipotle in adobo sauce
  • 2 slices cooked bacon, crumbled
  • ¼ cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 4 hamburger rolls
  • Chipotle Aioli Sauce
  • ½ cup greek yogurt, plain 0% fat
  • 1 tbsp. mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp. lime juice
  • ½ tsp. ground cumin
  • 2 whole chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, chopped fine
  • 1 tsp chipotle in adobo sauce
  1. In a bowl, add ground beef, pepper, chipotle peppers, chipotle sauce and bacon. Mix with your hands until combined. Divide into 8 2oz size patties. Place about tablespoon of shredded cheese into the center of four patties. Place the remaining 4 patties over the of each patty and shape into a hamburger. Place onto a plate and press a thumb print into the patty. Place in the refrigerator.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the grill over medium heat.
  3. While grill is heating up, make your chipolte Aioli Sauce. In a bowl, add greek yogurt, mayonnaise, lime juice, cumin, chipotle peppers and chipotle in adobo sauce. Mix until well combined. Taste it, if it's to hot, add more greek yogurt, if it's not hot enough add more chipotle pepper. The heat depends on your liking. Place in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
  4. Cook the burgers. Place burgers on the grill and cook each side for about 5 minutes for a medium cooked burger. Place the burger onto a hamburger bun and top with chipotle aioli sauce and add additional bacon if desired.
