Jalapeno Burgers

Jalapeno Burgers


1 ½ lb. Ground Chuck (see note)
3 each Fresh Green Onions (white & green), chopped
¼ cup Pickled Jalapeno Peppers, chopped (see note)
2 cloves Fresh Garlic, minced
1 tsp. Worcestershire Sauce
½ tsp. Salt
¼ tsp. Black Pepper
4-6 individual Hamburger Buns (or your favorite type of bun)
4-6 slices Pepper-jack Cheese (optional)
as needed Condiments


In a large mixing bowl, combine the onion, peppers, garlic, Worcestershire, salt and black pepper. Now add the ground chuck and mix. Form into 6 quarter pound sized round patties creating a dimple in the center. This helps keep the patty flat during grilling. Grill over medium-high heat for 3 to 5 minutes per side or until you reach the desired doneness for your tastes. Top with cheese (if using) and melt. Grill buns as the cheese is melting or burgers are finishing. Serve with your favorite side dishes.

Note: I use 80/20 or 85/15 (meat to fat ratio) because they offer more flavor. You can use leaner meat or even ground turkey or chicken. In the directions I show 6 portions. You can make 4 – 6 oz. Burgers too.

Note: You can use fresh jalapeno peppers too. If you don't want much heat, try using chopped green chilies from a small can.
