Spicy Chipotle Burgers

This recipe comes from Mary Ellen who runs a delightful recipe website called That's My Home - click here for website. Take a look at the website - it has an unusual approach for a recipe site which is refreshing. Curious as to how it came about I asked Mary Ellen to tell me a little bit more. This was her reply:

"I'm in Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA. I cooked professionally for over 20 years. I have always loved to cook as long as I can remember. That's My Home is a collection of recipes that I have collected for many years. I started taking some web design classes and well the rest is (a very new) history. I am a realtor now and was going to do web pages for realtors. I have had so much fun with my cooking site that I've never done a single realtor page, including my own. That's how the site got its name. Recipes on Main was originally intended to be a content area for the realtors. Some plan I had!"


1/2 C. diced onion
2 T. oil
1 T. adobo sauce
1 chipotle chili pepper seeded and finely chopped
1 1/2 lbs. ground beef or ground pork

Form the meat mixture into 6 burgers. Heat a large saucepan and add a little oil. Add burgers and cook until desired doneness.
