Cheese Stuffed Chipotle Burgers

This is a recipe I found on A Recipe a Day blog. We tried it about 6 months ago and it is now our burger recipe! We made these and plain hamburgers for Labor Day.

Cheese Stuffed Chipotle Burgers

1 (7 ounce) can chipotles in adobo sauce, undrained
2 lbs ground beef
2 tsps steak seasoning
1/2 (10 ounce) pkg Cheddar cheese
4 burger buns

Empty can of chipotles into a small food chopper or processor or blender and process until smooth. Combine 4 tsps of the chipotle puree, ground beef and steak seasoning in a large bowl until combined. Do not over mix or your burgers will be tough. Shape mixture into 8 patties, roughly the same size. Place 1 slice of cheese on 4 patties. Place a patty on top of each slice of cheese and press edges to seal. Chill for 30 minutes or so.

Make an indent in the top burger with your thumb so you won’t get that burger bump. Grill until cooked to your desired degree of doneness.Serve on buns with your favorite toppings.Makes 4 burgers.

****We cut this recipe in half and still get 4 burgers using 1 lb of ground beef.
