bacon wrapped jalepeno stuffed with cheese burgers

Jane Whittaker


I made these monsters for the Bud and Burger competition. We especially loved the stuffed jalepenos wrapped in bacon with the sauce, definately making these again as appetizer.
The burger itself was way too big for my MIL and me, we cut it in half.

How to Make bacon wrapped jalepeno stuffed with cheese burgers


  1. In a large bowl with an electric mixer combine the cream cheese, quesadilla, pepperjack, onion, mexicheese, chopped chipolte and sauce. Cover and chill
  2. Combine the ground beef and chorizo and form into 6 patties Season with salt and pepper
  3. Char the jalepenos either in oven under broiler or grill. Put in a glass bowl and cover with saran wrap to steam at least 20 minutes.
  4. Remove the charred skin. Cut enough of the side of jalepenos to stuff them and then cover with piece you have cut out. Wrap completely with bacon to cover cheese.
  5. Preheat grill to medium high and grill the burgers about 5 minutes per side, or to your likeness. Put Quesadilla slices on each burger last 5 minutes of cooking.
  6. While the burgers are grilling grill the bacon wrapped jalepenos at the same time. I found that it takes the jalepenos a little more time to cook than the burgers.
  7. Toast the buns the last few minutes of cooking
  8. Assemble with bottom bun, burger, onion, tomato, stuffed jalepeno (use 3) lettuce, generous amount of dressing on the top bun and cover.
