This burger has a little bit of heat from the chili sauce but is balanced nicely with the acidity of the lime pickled onions.


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons chili sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons cracked black pepper
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 large tomato
  • 1 head lettuce
  • 1 lime
  • Canola oil
  • Mayonnaise
  • Sweet chili sauce
  • Sliced cheddar cheese
  • Hamburger buns


  1. Mix together ground beef, chili sauce, salt, and pepper. Be sure spices are well incorporated before shaping meat into patties.
  2. Heat grill to 500°F (260°C) and place burgers directly on the grids. Reduce heat to MEDIUM and close lid. Cook for 15-20 minutes covered, check and/or flip every 5 minutes to ensure even doneness and crust. Melt cheese slices on burgers if desired.
  3. Slice tomato, lettuce, and onion.
  4. Squeeze lime juice over red onion and let stand for 15 minutes in a bowl.
  5. Serve on a toasted burger bun with Mayonnaise and sweet chili sauce.

Pro Tip: Flip your cooking grates to the grooved side, you get more of a full surface sear on the burger with more golden-brown bits!
