Grilled Chipotle Burgers "If I could turn back time..."

IMG_2097

Chipotle Burgers.  Simple. Smokey.

Spicy...but not overly so...

Just ask Snacktive ...I agonized over whether or not to top the burgers with cheese....

The only cheese we had on hand was an Asiago Rosemary and a Spanish Manchego...two great choices, right...?

I wasn't sure...

I decided Chipotle Peppers and Spanish Manchego either reeeeally got along or...

...were like two ingredients who didn't want to like one another...but in the end...you just KNEW...

THEY WOULD.

Add an ice cold Corona with fresh squeezed lime ......and well...

...he told me he'd marry me all over again...

...ONLY ...if we could (elope to a tropical island and) replace the Cornish Game Hens (on our reception dinner menu some 10 years ago) with these..... Chipotle Burgers 

...IF I COULD TURN BACK TIME.  IF I COULD FIND A WAY. :)

I have to have cheese on my burger or I don't consider it a burger.

You've got some great shots of the burgers. Great shots of burgers aren't easy to come by either as you know - you have to have talent. Very impressive.

I have a chopotle slider recipe that I adore and every time I serve it people go wild. It's topped with a slice of grilled pineapple.

Cornish game hens are a girl thang, and it WAS your wedding, so you get to call the shots. But when you get home, if you can feed him a great burger like this one now and again, you'll have him right where you want him!

Oh. My. God. I don't know what I love more - the love story or the burger. This is next on my burger list!

Oh...these do sound good! Love cooking with chipotle in adobo. It adds just the right amount of spice.
And your cheese choice looks spot on!

Chipotle and manchego...sounds like a match made in heaven to me! So this is how I can get a man to marry me, huh? On it!

Heather said...

Oh yes, you certainly struggled with the decision just like you are now with the china doll you found! These look delectable, I think you made the right cheese choice!
