Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

Tips

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

I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO POPULAR!!! I served up these burgers at a big corporate picnic where there was a burger making contest. I made this recipe exactly the way it was posted and I took first place out of 7 teams representing 20 cooks. I made them into 1/2 patties, put the roasted Jalepenos on top and melted Tilamook Pepper Jack cheese over them. All on an Infared Grill, of course. Best dang burger I have ever had! Read More

I have used this site for about 20 recipes and 5 different burgers. This is BY FAR the best burger on this site so far and probably also the best burger I have ever tasted. Follow the ingrediants exactly and use about half the seeds for a great burger. I want to eat these burgers for all my meals!!! Read More

I left out the jalapeno peppers because my dad cannot tolerate spicy food, but next time I will put in 1 or 2 peppers because it seemed like the burgurs could handle some more kick. But even without the peppers, my family devoured these burgurs!! UPDATE: I made these for a 4th of July bbq, so I left out the jalapenos (again) because not everyone likes spicy. But to keep the kick in the burger, I doubled all of the spices (I tripled the garlic), added lots of fresh parsley and some ground turkey and EVERYONE went nuts. They were probably the best burgurs that I have ever made. Read More

AWESOME! I have cooked these burgers 4 times now and they get better everytime. Always grilled them, and made some alterations. For people who dont want the spicy, I've switched the jalepenos for chiles and that was all it needed. I've also added another egg to hold it all together, a full bag of chili cheese fritos instead of regular, and MOST IMPORTANT, a half cup of blue mon beer! They are so good, we will never cook regular burgers again! Read More

these are great! For those of you that didn't think it was spicy enough make sure you add the jalapeno seeds. I added about half and combined with the pepper jack cheese they were plenty spicy. Read More

Followed this recipe exactly. I'm from central AZ so I thought I knew hot. However. These burgers are HOT. My husband couldn't finish his. I am going to make these again changing the jalapeneo amount to 1/3. Either I got ahold of some amazingly potent peppers or we are total wimps. I know there's flavor in these burgers we just had trouble finding it because we were too busy sucking down ice water. Read More

I also followed this recipe as written. Except I toasted the buns.I really am shocked at the results. My kids LOVED these burgers. They are fast food burgeraholics. They usually only eat 1 burger each so I made the extras into patties and froze them while the kids ate. My son comes down stairs and says "Mommy that was the best burger ever!,I want more!" They made me promise to make them again the next night. So I did and now instead of going to Checker's, Hardees,or Wendy's my kids now prefer theses.Great job thanks so much ? Read More

I used sunchips (garden Veggie) because that is what I had on hand. My husband said that these were the best burgers he has even eaten! Great recipe thanks! Read More

SO GOOD!!!! The only changes I made were adding some liquid smoke (cooked on foreman grill) and used double the amount of fritos which were chili cheese flavor. I froze half of the burgers and they tasted great the second time around too! I will only make burgers this way from now on!! Read More
