Tex-mex Cheeseburgers With Chili-lime Mayo

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Susie in Texas

These are an absolute must for your next backyard cookout! The chili-lime flavored mayonnaise is DELICIOUS! I usually do not like mayo on a hamburger (give me mustard or Miracle Whip) but you will be surprised with this delightfully different taste.

Once in a while you find a recipe that just suits your taste to perfection. This is one of those. The mayonnaise was great -- not too runny at all -- even tho I used low-fat. I used chipotle chili sauce and ground turkey, too. I wish I had made even more of the mayo because it's all gone and we have a couple of burgers left. Kudos to Susie! Try this! You'll lvoe it!
