Chipotle Bacon Cheeseburgers

Not a lot of time for chit chat so this will be short and sweet as being a full time employee and a full time Mom is a lot of hard work. Throw in this terrible Ohio weather we are dealing with it and it makes for a very tired Katie!!

Anyway, I called home today to see if Daniel wanted anything in particular for dinner since I was stopping by the store after work. Surprise, surprise he said hamburgers, how I threw these together so I could blog about them and use up the extra chipotle peppers I had floating in the pantry.

I thought these were excellent although Daniel said five chipotle peppers may be to much. I think five was just enough and am thinking maybe I hadn't mixed the meat together as well as I could have and maybe he just got a really big bite of the stuff. I ate it without breaking a sweat which means they weren't to spicy for me. I do not do spicy so trust me on this one.

Source: Your's truly Katie! :)

2 lbs. ground beef...I used an 80/20 mix
5 chipotle peppers in adobe sauce
2 tbsp. dried onions
1 tbsp. garlic powder
6 slices of cooked bacon
1 md. onion, cut in half and then thinly sliced
6 hamburger buns
Hellmans Mayo
6 slices of provolone cheese


1.) In a medium bowl mix together meat, finely chopped chipotle peppers, garlic powder, and dried onions. Form into six hamburger patties.

2.) Over medium heat cook until you reach desired doneness. In a separate skillet saute onion until translucent.

3.) Top each burger with a slice of cheese and allow it to melt while still in pan.

4.) Cook bacon in microwave until done.

5.) To assemble burger apply a medium layer of mayo on bottom hamburger bun, top with hamburger, onion, and then one slice of bacon broken in half.

Hope you enjoy! On a side doneness even a word or did I seriously just make that up and what in the world is going on with this post and it's fonts??
