Chipotle Bacon Cheeseburger

I mentioned last week how much my family loves football and food, and the combination of both make for a fun way to spend a Saturday evening.

We had a lot of fun watching OU play Missouri last Saturday night. And of course we had some good food to go along with it.

I love to grill hamburgers on OU game nights. And I enjoy coming up with new flavors and combinations of hamburgers to serve. A new recent favorite of ours is Chipotle Bacon Cheeseburger.

Bacon and cheese always go together well in a hamburger, and the chipotle pepper in this gives it a nice smokey flavor that pairs perfectly with the bacon.

I served this on Saturday with a green salad and Bush’s Bold & Spicy Baked Beans. The Bold & Spicy Baked Beans flavored with cilantro, cumin, bacon, and brown sugar were perfect with the Chipotle Bacon Cheeseburger.

The spiciness of the beans went very well with the spiciness of the burger and the Bush’s Baked Beans made this meal so quick and easy to put together.

Disclaimer: I was compensated for my time for this post by Bush’s Baked Beans, but my thoughts and opinions are my own.

  1. Bacon + Cheese + Peppers = YUM

  2. My husband would LOVE this. We have several cans of Bush’s in our pantry right now, but we’ve never tried the bold and spicy. Thinking we might next time!

  3. I’m adding this to my recipe list for sure! My husband loves chipotle peppers and I just bought a can of Bush beans at the commissary last week.

    Thanks for sharing!


  4. I tend to be boring with my burgers, simply because I don’t think ahead for creative ideas. This one sounds delicious!

  5. Yum! Love the note about “one pepper not one can” – I have a recipe that calls for one chipotle pepper and I had to make that clarification, too, after too many readers tried using a whole can!

    • I had a reader to that also, which is why I know clarify on that. :) One can would be rather spicy, although my husband might actually enjoy them that way.

  6. We love the Bush’s bold and spicy beans! The problem is finding them! Here in Las Vegas, it’s the luck of the draw. The burger sounds yummy and will try to make it this weekend!!

  7. Our family LOVE Bush Beans, although we haven’t tried the Chipolte ones. YOur burger sounds AMAZING! :)

    I made these burgers on Saturday. Next time I will add twice as much additions to it – more bacon, BBQ sauce, cheese, and chipotle. It was good with some flavor but would have liked a lot more flavor. (My kids may not like the extra flavor!) Thanks for the new recipe!

    • My husband would agree that they needed more chipotle, however I did not think my kids would eat them if I made them hotter. :) I might make two batches next time I make them. One for those that like it spicy and one for those that don’t.
