8 burgers


  • 5 fresh jalapeno peppers

  • 4 pounds ground beef

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • 1 egg

  • ¼ cup steak sauce, (e.g. Heinz 57)

  • ¼ cup minced white onion

  • 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce (e.g. Tabasco™)

  • 1 pinch dried oregano

  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt

  • ¼ cup crushed Fritos® corn chips

  • 8 large potato hamburger buns

  • 8 slices pepperjack cheese


  1. Preheat a grill for high heat. When the grill is hot, roast the jalapeno peppers until blackened on all sides. Place in a plastic bag to sweat and loosen the blackened skin. Rub the skin off, then seed if desired, and chop.

  2. In a large bowl, use your hands to mix together the chopped jalapenos, ground beef, salt, pepper, egg, steak sauce, onion, hot pepper sauce, oregano, Worcestershire sauce, garlic salt and Fritos®. Divide into 8 balls, and flatten into patties.

  3. Grill patties for 10 to 15 minutes, turning once, or until well done. I always drink one beer, then flip, drink another beer, then remove from the grill and place on buns. Top each one with a slice of pepperjack cheese and pig out!


Please note that the magazine version of this recipe has reduced the chicken broth amount to 1/2 cup.
