Bon Appétit: Tex-Mex Patty Melts
1 pound ground beef
3 tablespoons chili seasoning mix
2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, minced
1/2 fluid ounce beer
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, minced
6 (1 ounce) slices white bread
6 (1/2 ounce) slices pepperjack cheese
Mix together the ground beef, chili seasoning mix, 2 minced chipotle peppers with adobo sauce, and the beer in a bowl.
Divide the mixture evenly into three patties.
Stir together the mayonnaise and 1 minced chipotle pepper with adobo sauce in a small bowl.
Divide the mixture between the bread slices and spread evenly.
Place a slice of pepperjack cheese on top of the mayonnaise mixture on each slice of bread.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Cook the patties in the skillet until no longer pink in the center, 5 to 7 minutes each side for well done.
Remove each burger to a slice of bread, sandwiching them with the remaining slices.
Drain the skillet, reserving 2 tablespoons of the grease.
Heat the reserved grease in the skillet over medium-high heat.
Grill the sandwiches in the skillet until the bread is golden brown and the cheese is melted, 1 to 2 minutes per side.
