Prepare chipotle ketchup
In small bowl, combine ketchup and Tabasco chipotle pepper sauce; set aside.
Preheat grill to high. Meanwhile, combine ground beef, scallions, Tabasco chipotle pepper sauce and salt in bowl; mix well. Shape mixture into eight 2-inch round burgers.
Grill burgers about 5 minutes, or until of desired doneness, turning once. Cut each cheese slice into 4 pieces. Top burgers with cheese; cook 1 minute longer or until cheese is melted.
