Sydney’s Chipotle Hamburgers.




After the Maroon 5 concert in Philly, we spent the next day exploring all my favorite food hot spots on Friday.  My daughter, Sydney, spotted this cookbook for teens and insisted we get it so that she can cook for us.  WHAT?  Excuse ME?  This is my daughter who has NEVER expressed an interest in the kitchen or what occurs in there as long as there is food to eat.  Ha!  I was at the register immediately with the cookbook in hand!

She had to work Saturday night so Sunday was her foray into the kitchen and cooking.  She found a burger recipe to grill outside (the weather was gorgeous outside) so it was perfect!

The recipe is loosely based on How to Cook Delicious dishes perfect for teen cooks. 


4 green onions, diced
4 garlic cloves, minced
Olive oil
1.5 lbs of ground beef (sirloin) lean 93%
2 teaspoon of Chipotle Chili powder
Cheese for topping (optional)


In a saute pan, add some olive oil and get it nice and hot.  Add the onions and cook for 3-4 minutes.  Add the garlic.  Cook for an additional minute.  Then remove from the heat.  Let cool.  Then into a large bowl add the meat, mixture, chili powder, salt and pepper.  Form into sliders or larger burgers.  Heat your grill and cook for about 6-8 minutes.  Top with cheese if you desire.  Serve on a bun or carb free style with lettuce.  Enjoy!

  1. I love the sound of these. I’ve served jalapenos in a burger before but never added chipotle powder to the actual patty mixture. I’m going to bookmark this recipe and try it out. Thanks for sharing!
