A whole 7oz. can of chipotle peppers would blow my flip flops right off, so I only chopped up two peppers (and we like heat). I'm not sure about the whole bunch of cilantro either, My bunch is pretty big. I just chopped a good handful up. I've learned when you add a lot of extra ingredient into a burger it will fall apart on the grill. The way to avoid this it to put your patties in the freezer on wax paper for at least a couple hours before grilling. They aren't frozen but solid enough to not crumble when cooking. Works every time for us. I got lazy and just put the slices of the salsa ingredients on top, squirted the fresh lime on it and topped with more of the cilantro. Worked great and didn't fall all over the place when eating. This is really a great burger, so much so my son asked to have these again for his birthday dinner BBQ. Five stars if you reduce the amount of peppers... Update, I've made this burger with ground turkey twice now and the mushrooms give it such a moist good flavor. I still haven't had any trouble with them falling apart on the grill.


BEST BURGERS EVER! From now on this is the only way burgers are made in my house. The time estimate for the prep is WAY off. De-seeding and chopping a can of chipotle is very time consuming. Every can of adobo chipotle peppers varies and you never know what you are going to get heat wise, so unless you like it really, really hot, I would advise using 1/2 a can/pound beef and playing it safe.


We LOVED the avocado salsa made exactly as recipe specified! The burgers were awesome...the mushrooms kept them so moist. However, though we love spicy, we dediced to use just two of the chipotle peppers and some of the sauce for 1 lb of hamburger and they had the perfect amount of heat for us. Great recipe!!
