For the sweet pickled chipotles

  2. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer.
  3. Cook partially covered, until the chiles are soft, about 1 hour.
  4. Add remaining ingredients and cook for 30 minutes.
  5. Cool to room temperature, then refrigerate.

For the burger build

  1. Cook burger to an internal temperature of 160°F.
  2. Place quesadilla cheese on each tortilla and grill until cheese is melted.
  3. Place burger on one tortilla. Sprinkle with pickled chipotles, diced onion, cilantro and tomatoes.
  4. Top with second tortilla. Cut into quarters to serve.
