Western-Style Cheeseburgers


1 pound lean ground beef
1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce – finely chopped
3 fresh jalapeño peppers – finely chopped
3 cloves garlic – minced
1½ tsp. of Cajun or Creole seasoning
½ small onion – finely chopped
salt and pepper to taste
5 tbsp. of mayonnaise
half a 3.5 ounce package buffalo mozzarella
4 burger buns


~To make the pepper mayo, combine the mayonnaise and chopped chipotle pepper in a small bowl and mix with a fork. Set aside until ready to serve.

~Combine the beef with the rest of the ingredients and mix well. If you have time, allow the mixture to rest for 1-3 hours in the refrigerator.

~Shape the beef mixture into 4 patties and cook each burger over medium-high heat for 4 minutes on each side or until the meat is fully cooked. Add a thick slice of buffalo mozzarella to each patty about 90 seconds before cooking is done, to melt the cheese.

~Serve on toasted burger buns with the pepper mayo spread underneath and on top of each patty.
