  • Melt butter in large skillet on medium heat. Add onions, 1 teaspoon of the Marinade Mix and chipotle chili pepper; cook and stir 7 to 8 minutes or until onions are golden brown. Add 2 tablespoons of the beer and sugar; cook and stir 1 to 2 minutes or until beer has evaporated. Set aside.

  • Mix remaining Marinade Mix, remaining 1/3 cup beer and Worcestershire sauce in large bowl until well blended. Add ground beef; mix lightly. Shape into 6 patties.

Toast rolls on the grill, open-side down, about 30 seconds or until golden. Serve burgers on toasted rolls with caramelized onions. Garnish with desired toppings and condiments.

    Awesome. The onions are fabulous too. However, I did omit the chipotle.

    Love this recipe, we've made them twice now, used even more chipotle powder, muenster cheese and had the patties made up and stored in the freezer so we could have them all summer without having to go through the whole recipe.
