This is a great burger, Linda. The layers of chile and chili give a great deph of flavor without overwhelming heat. I used Sue L's Chipotle Mayonnaise #81066 and Barb Gertz's Chipotle Mango Barbeque Sauce #90733.

I liked the spices in the meat, and really enjoyed the contrast of the chipotle mayo with the barbecue sauce (I used Quick and easy Splenda BBQ Sauce, which is a little on the sweet side. Don't laugh, but I had not thought of toasting and buttering my hamburger buns before, but it really added to the experience. I appreciate that you give instructions for homemade chipotle mayonnaise (I won't be buying the French's again due to all the chemicals).
