A burger slathered in Secret Aardvark Smoky Chiptole Habanero Sauce

Smoky Chipotle Burger

This burger combines ground cumin, pepper jack cheese, and Secret Aardvark Smoky Chipotle-Hab Sauce for a deeply savory and delicious take on the classic American hamburger. Cumin powder gives this recipe a south-of-the-border flair (since it’s one of the main spices you’ll find in chili powder, it’s right at home with some habanero heat).
