Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 20 minutes
Total: 35 minutes



  • lbsground beef

  1. Mix the ground beef, grated onion, minced chipotles, the adobo sauce, salt, cumin, and black pepper together in a large bowl. Mix gently, just until the ingredients are combined.

  2. Form 4 to 6 patties from the burger mix, about ¼ pound to ⅓ pound each. Press a shallow indent in the middle of the patties to keep the burgers from puffing up while grilling.

  3. Prepare a gas or charcoal grill for medium-high heat grilling.

  4. Lay the burgers on the grill and cook with the lid down for 6 to 7 minutes. Raise the lid, flip the burgers, and continue grilling with the lid down for another 6 to 7 minutes, depending on the grill and preference.

  5. Cook until the internal temperature is 140 degrees F for medium-rare or 160 degrees F for well done.

  6. When the burgers are almost ready, place a slice of jack cheese on each patty and close the grill lid. The cheese should melt in a little over 1 minute.

  7. When the burgers are ready, place them on the buns. Top with slices of avocado, a little cilantro, and hot sauce.

  8. Serve and enjoy.

Recipe Notes

If using toasted burger buns with burgers, toast them after flipping the burgers. Watch that the buns don’t burn; when they are lightly toasted move them to a tray near the grill.
