Chipotle Honey BBQ Burgers

  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Cook Time: 30 minutes
  • Total Time: 50 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


Blue cheese stuffed hamburgers are topped with a homemade chipotle bbq sauce, bacon, tomatoes and lettuce.



For the BBQ Sauce:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons minced chipotle peppers in adobo
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

For the Burgers:

  • 1 1/4 lb ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • Olive oil

For Serving:

  • 4 sesame seed buns
  • 8 slices of cooked bacon
  • Tomatoes
  • Lettuce


  1. Heat the olive oil in a medium pan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until translucent, 4-5 minutes. Add in the garlic and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add in the ketchup, brown sugar, honey, chipotle peppers, apple cider vinegar, Worcestershire sauce and dry mustard. Bring to a bubble and let simmer to combine the flavors, about 20 minutes. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the ground beef and Worcestershire sauce. Season with salt and pepper. Mix together then form into 8 thin patties. Place 1/4 of the cheese on top of 4 of the patties. Take the other patties and place on top of the cheese and pinch the edges to seal the cheese into the center. Drizzle with olive oil.
  3. Heat a grill or indoor grill pan over medium high heat. Grill the burgers until cooked through, 5-7 minutes on each side.
  4. Assemble burgers on the buns, topped with the bacon, bbq sauce, tomatoes and lettuce.
