If you can't stand the heat, you may, of course, turn down the cayenne.

Ingredients[edit | edit source]

  • 1 pound ground chuck
  • 1-1 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp Montreal Steak Seasoning
  • Olive oil
  • 8 slices bacon, crisp cooked
  • 4 slices pepper jack cheese
  • Lettuce, tomato, and onion (optional)
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 chipotle chile in adobo, finely chopped

Procedure[edit | edit source]

  1. Combine mayo and chipotle. Refrigerate until needed.
  2. Combine cayenne, salt, pepper, and seasoning. Set aside.
  3. Form meat into 4 equal patties, about 1/2 inch thick. Make an indentation in the center of each one and brush with olive oil.
  4. Sprinkle patties on both sides with seasoning mixture. Set aside.
  5. Preheat a chimney starter full of charcoal in the bottom of a kettle grill. Once hot, disperse evenly around the bottom of the grill.
  6. Add burgers and grill, turning often, until desired "doneness" is achieved.
  7. Place a slice of cheese on each patty once it comes off the grill. Serve with bacon, lettuce, tomato, and chipotle mayo on buns.
