Copycat DQ FlameThrowers

I LOVE the DQ flame thrower but wanted to have more control over what was in/on it so I came up with my own...
 This is also FANTASTIC with a small baked chicken breast in place of the beef(seasoned as you wish)!

Hamburger Buns
1lb ground beef
Chipotle Mayo(recipe below if you cant find it in stores)
Monterrey jack cheese

break up ground beef, add about 1TB cold water and 1/2 to 1 tsp seasoned salt and mix well
divide into 4 pieces , flatten between 2 pieces of wax paper, you want them nice and wide as they will shrink up, probably about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick, place on broiler pan.

Chipotle Mayo
1/4 cup mayo (fresh if you want to make it RECIPE)
1/2 tsp ground chipotle pepper(or chipotle tobasco to taste if you cant find ground chipotle)

broil your burgers to an internal temp of 165 (about 5 minutes on each side depending on thickness)
toast your buns
when burgers are done add a few teaspoons of FINELY chopped jalapeno, slices of bacon, then put slices of Monterrey jack cheese on top and broil until slightly melted.
Spread chipotle mayo on toasted buns, add burgers to bottom bun, add on tomato slices, onions and lettuce(or baby spinach for us, our kids have a weird sensitivity to lettuce)


  1. I missed this one! Kelli! Your making me starve over here looking at this stuff! haha
    This looks really good! :)

  2. I have made this sandwich. My sauce includes mayo, chipotle, adobe sauce, minced garlic, salt and oregano--try additions to above sauce. I use pepperjack cheese also with beef bacon. Makes for a great sandwich with a little coleslaw on the side. Dixie in Eolia
