I loved this recipe. Quick Easy and Delicious. I did change a few things though. I added 1 egg to help keep the meat together. I also used 1 can of diced jalapenos instead of fresh ones. I used minced roasted garlic too. I cooked them on the stove due to it snow outside but they turned out great! Will make these again for sure when I can use the grill! Read More

Thumbs up for a great burger. I used sliced jalapeno from a jar and only 1 Tbs. of dried minced onion plus a little low sodium seasoning salt. Although I didn't use fresh onion it seems that the patties would have trouble holding together with that much onion. 1 small onion is a lot of onion for only 1 lb of beef. These were not quite as moist as the jalapeno/cheddar burger with the cheese mixed in but still good enough for a thumbs up. Thanks Steve. Read More

These were great! I like to leave the seeds and membranes in the jalapenos for extra kick but you can remove them for a more subtle flavor. Read More

Ohhh these were good....I'm a fire-breathing native Texan so I love this spicy stuff. Awesome on toasted buns with a big spoonful of guacamole. I did add a teaspoon of Montreal steak blend just to balance the flavors a little and a good shake of Frank's hot sauce. Read More

These were very satisfying... I was in the mood for jalapeno peppers and had ground beef defrosted. I used a couple Tbsp. of canned diced jalapeno instead of the fresh and added a few diced sun-dried tomatoes to the mixture. GREAT BURGERS and thanks for posting! Read More

I thought the taste was awesome but they didn't stay together very well... I didn't add egg or anything but I think it might have helped hold the burger form better. But they do taste mighty darn good! Read More

Delicious! I made half of this recipe and I added about 1/4 teaspoon each of cumin and chili powder along with a dash of salt for flavor and an egg to hold it together. I did cook the burgers in a skillet but I imagine these are amazing on the grill! I didn't have any pepper jack so I used colby jack instead and served on toasted 9-grain ciabatta bread. SO good!

Oh my gosh this is the best burger recipe ever!! I added 1-2 tbs salsa and I took the patties and made them really thin. I placed a slice of American cheese on one of the thin patties and then placed another thin patty on top. I pan fried them and they were so tastey good and juicy!! My husband said that swiss cheese would have worked well too. Thank you so much for sharing this awesome recipe!! Read More
