To Make The Burgers
In a large mixing bowl, add all of the burger ingredients. Using your hands, knead all of the ingredients together until the mixture's smooth & everything's evenly combined.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat with a little bit of oil in it.
Using your hands, for the seasoned ground beef mixture into two large patties. Try to get them wide and thick- they're going on tortillas as buns and beef shrinks as it cooks.
Cook the burgers in the skillet once the oil's hot. Flip them and cook as desired until the outsides are crisp and the inside is your preferred temperature.
Remove the cooked burgers from the skillet, transfer them to a plate, and set aside. You can pop the plate into the oven on the keep warm setting if needed to ensure they stay warm.
To Make The Chipotle Mayo
In a small bowl, whisk together all of the ingredients until smooth. Set the mixture aside.
To Assemble The Burgers
Drain the burger grease out of the skillet.
Add two flour tortillas to the pan over medium low heat, and cook just until the tortillas have begun to crisp and turned golden brown.
Using tongs, remove the tortillas from the skillet and transfer them to a paper towel lined plates to drain any excess grease.
Repeat for the remaining two tortillas.
Add one tortilla each to two plates. Top each tortilla with half of the cheese. Add a burger.
Divide the pico de gallo and lettuce out between the two burgers, topping them both evenly.
Next, add your desired amount of the chipotle mayonnaise to each burger. It is liquidy so I like to spoon it over top.
Top each burger with one of the remaining tortillas, serve & enjoy!
