  • Onions

    Cook a slice of onion in a little bit of oil over medium low heat until it's well browned on one side and beginning to soften. Carefully flip it over.

    Beef

    Place a well-seasoned, thin, thin patty of beef over the onions, pressing down gently so the onions get embedded. Continue to cook over medium-low heat until the onions are browned on the second side. This should take a couple of minutes.

    Jalapeños

    Jalapeños, beef, and onions

    Flip the entire thing over so that the beef is now in direct contact with the pan, and the onions are on top. Add a bunch of thinly sliced pickled jalapeños.

    Cheese, Buns, and Cover

    Lay a slice of American cheese over the jalapeños, then lay the top bun on top of it, followed by the bottom bun. Cover the whole thing with a domed lid (if you don't have a lid, just use a saucepan), and continue to cook over medium low heat until the meat is cooked through and the buns are both steamed and soft.

    Sauce

    Spread the bottom bun with chipotle cream, made by puréeing a couple of chipotles packed in adobo sauce with Mexican crema or sour cream (even mayo would work great). You can also add some chopped cilantro to this if you have the inclination. Proportions here are as spicy or as mild as you'd like them to be.

    Assemble and Devour
