Chipotle Cheddar Burger

  • 400 gr minced beef or meat of choice 14 oz. Divided into two patties. Less meat is also okay.
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp smokey paprika
  • 1/2 tsp chipotle powder
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • pinch chili flakes
  • 2 slices cheddar cheese

Chipotle Lime Mayo

  • 1/2 lime juice only
  • 4 tbsp mayo
  • 2 tsp chipotle paste heaping
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • 2 brioche buns
  • 1 small avocado sliced
  • 1 small red onion thinly sliced into circles
  • 1 tomato sliced
  • 8 pickled jalapeños
  • lettuce


  • Do not overwork the minced beef. Just loosely form them into balls and flatten them to patties. Brush the patties with Worcestershire sauce and sprinkle with a mixture of the seasonings (salt through chili flakes) after you have formed them. Make an indentation in the center of the patty, and it will then stay flatter once grilled.
  • If you've got a grill, grill them! But a grill pan inside is okay too. Here are some general guidelines: - Do not press the patties down with the spatula - it releases the juices and you will get a drier patty. Let it be. - High temperature = more crust. - Flip the burger only one time, when you see the burger starting to sweat (at about 3-4 minutes). Flipping only one time will also give more crust and texture. Once flipped, add the cheese so it melts nicely. - Let them rest a few minutes before digging in.
  • Make the mayo: mix juice of 1/2 lime, 2 heaping tsp of chipotle paste, 4 tbsp mayo, salt and pepper in a small bowl.
  • Serve the chipotle cheddar burger on a lightly toasted brioche bun. I like to begin with  a little bit of dressing, salad, tomato, onion, avocado - then the burger patty (with melted cheese) - top with jalapeños and a little bit dressing and add the brioche top.
