These were pretty darn good. I used Italian bread crumbs and omitted the egg and added about 1/4 of really cold cold water. Just don't like my burgers tasting like meatloaf and the water makes for a juicier hamburger. The peppers gave a great jolt. Thanks for the post. Read More

It was a bad idea to put jalapeno/chile peppers and cheese in the middle of the burger. The cheese has all melted out and it was not pleasant to bite into the hot stuff only in the middle. I would just add/mix jalapeno/chile peppers with ground beef so you can taste it with every bite (adjust the amount by your taste). Read More

Delicious! I used pepper jack cheese instead of the peppers and monterey jack called for and I was out of bread crumbs so I sub'd crushed corn flakes. Oh and I threw in about a half a package of chili seasoning to the meat mixture. Served it with homemade buns (fron the site) and my hubby loved it =) Thanks for a great recipe! I'll defiantely make this again! Read More

Very Good. I made them exactly as stated but cooked them on the stove top instead of the oven. They tasted like meatloaf. I made them for christmas dinner and I got away with it. I called them Christmas burgers because they had a red white and green present on the inside. Thanks! Read More

I have to give this only because as others said it tasted more like meatloaf. So taking that into consideration I served it as meatloaf. I used habanero sauce for the hot sauce and I increased the amount of cheese to a cup! Then took the meat and divided it in half flattened it out put the topping on and covered that with the other meat portion. Made certain it was sealed all around so the cheese would not leak out. It was very good as supper and the next day we had it cold for sandwiches. If I rated it as a meatloaf I'd give it a 5 s! Read More

Ok well I didn't want to go to the store today so I made a few substitutions - homemade hot sauce for Tabasco; diced chipotle peppers from a can; regular extra-sharp Cheddar - and although they were WAY too spicy for me Husband really loved them. Thanks so much! Read More

I changed the recipe a little to suit my taste - I didn't add the bread crumbs or egg and I threw in a couple tablespoons of worchestershire sauce and a dash of beer. Instead of using jalapenos I used diced green chilis. They were awesome and I really appreciated the creativity of adding spice and cheese to the center of the burger. I made them for a big cookout and they were a huge hit! Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Very good burgers only made one change by using shredded cheddar cheese instead of monteray jack. Came out slightly more well done than I generally like will cook for a shorter time next time but otherwise very good. Read More
