  • Whisk mayonnaise, vinegar, onion, sugar, and celery seeds in a large bowl; season with salt and pepper. Add cabbage and carrot and toss to coat; season with salt and pepper. Cover and chill at least 30 minutes.
  • DO AHEAD: can be made 1 day ahead. Keep chilled.

Chipotle Ketchup

  • Whisk ketchup and chipotle chiles in a small bowl; season with salt and pepper. Cover and chill.
  • DO AHEAD: Ketchup can be mixed 1 day ahead. Cover and chill.

Burgers and assembly

  • Form meat into four 4” diameter, ¾”-thick patties. Using your thumb, make an indentation in the center of each patty to help keep them flat as they cook. Season generously with salt and pepper.
  • Heat a large skillet, preferably cast iron, over medium-high heat, then heat oil in pan until smoking. Cook burgers until a deep brown crust has formed, about 2 minutes per side. Add 2 Tbsp. water to skillet, immediately cover skillet (hot oil will splatter), and cook to medium-rare, about 1 minute.
  • Uncover skillet and top each burger with 2 slices cheese. Add another 2 Tbsp. water to skillet; cover skillet and cook until cheese is melted and burgers are cooked to medium, about 1 minute longer.
  • Serve burgers on buns with chipotle ketchup, coleslaw, onion, jalapeños, and potato chips. Place a skewer through each burger to help hold them together.
  • DO AHEAD: Patties can be formed 4 hours ahead. Cover and chill.
