Creamy chipotle cheeseburgers are made with a very flavorful hamburger patty, topped with a smooth and creamy chipotle mayo. A delicious spin to your traditional homestyle cheeseburgers!
These creamy Chipotle Cheeseburgers were so amazing y’all! No seriously, they are LOADED with flavor. The creamy Chipotle sauce came about because I just made a batch of chipotle salsa for Taco Tuesday.
If you are anything like me, you cannot let ANY food go to waste! So low-and-behold, creamy Chipotle sauce was born.
Is the creamy chipotle sauce spicy?
Not at all. It has a nice little zesty kick, but hardly any spice. Cheeseburgers fresh of the grill are absolutely delish, but I was yearning for something a lil’ different.
The creamy chipotle sauce was the perfect solution for that something different. It added a whole different depth of flavor to the Cheeseburgers.
Do I have to grill the burgers?
Nope not at all! You know my favorite pan is my trusty ol' cast iron skillet. That baby creates beautiful burgers also. Sear the burgers over medium-high heat to create the perfect crust.
For a well done burger, cook each side for about 10 minutes. Adjust accordingly for a more rare burger. So cook-up this recipe inside of grilling is not your things. The flavor is still amazing!
I’m in a crunch, how long will this take?
The chipotle salsa literally took 5 mins to make! That’s it, 5 minutes! Even better though, it only requires 3 simple ingredients.
Honestly, the burgers were done in a snap also. The most time consuming part is mixing all of the seasoning and forming the patties. We’re talking maybe 10 minutes there, and 10 minutes to cook. That’s it!
Prepare your toppings, and wan-lah, creamy Chipotle burgers are created!
What seasonings do you add?
For these burgers I used the super simple chipotle salsa we made. My “go-to” seasonings for burgers though:
- Seasoning salt
- Dry minced onions
- Garlic powder
- Black pepper
That seems like a lot of seasoning!
Do not be stingy or shy with your seasonings either! As you can see, I was very generous with the seasoning salt. That is because I used 2 pounds of ground beef. Scale it back if you’re watching sodium intake, or if you use less meat.
I was so excited to share this recipe with you guys because these cheeseburgers were THAT good! The chipotle salsa is not overly spicy, but it creates a great layer of flavor. If you are looking for something new and delicious, give these creamy Chipotle burgers a try.
