Bordertown Burgers With Spicy Onions

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by LizzieBug

My adaptation of a recipe that came with a bottle of Tabasco Chipotle Pepper Sauce. Juicy and tender, this burger has a wonderful smoky, spicy flavor without being overpoweringly hot.

The original recipe also includes 1/4 cup chopped green onion to mix in with the meat.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil in a medium-size skillet over medium heat.
  2. Add the onions and cook until golden brown (5-7 minutes), stirring often.
  3. Add the Worcestershire sauce and 1 Tbsp of the chipotle sauce, stirring well to evenly coat the onions. Then remove the onions from the heat and keep warm.
  4. Combine the ground beef, cilantro, salt, and 3 Tbsp of the chipotle sauce (Use 2 Tbsp for milder burgers) and shape into 4 burgers.
  5. Grill over medium-high heat. (Approx. 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. 5 minutes per side for medium-well.).
  6. Top each burger with a slice of pepper-jack cheese and grill until the cheese melts.
  7. Place the burgers on toasted buns, and top with the spicy onions.
  8. Add any burger toppings you’re fond of. I like a little bit of horseradish mayo on my burgers.
