Need a little spice in your life? Try these. Perfect amount of heat and smokiness. :)

With the perfect amount of heat and smokiness, these may become your favorite cheeseburgers. The burger is juicy with bits of jalapeno in every bite. We love the smoky flavor from the chipotle peppers and liquid smoke. Top with your favorite cheese (we opted for pepper jack) and you have one tasty and juicy burger. Don't love ciabatta rolls? A regular or potato bun would be great too! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Smoky Jalapeno Bacon Cheeseburgers

Step-by-Step

  1. Seed and finely chop your jalapeno pepper.
  2. Add ground beef and the chopped jalapeno to a bowl.
  3. Chop the chipotle pepper. Add that plus the adobo sauce to the ground beef and jalapenos.
  4. Add the liquid smoke, Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, and mayo to another bowl. Whisk together.
  5. Combine all ingredients into the bowl with the ground beef and thoroughly mix with your hands.
  6. Divide the ground beef into four sections and make your patties.
  7. Cook the burgers however you see fit. I grilled them and finished them off in the oven to help melt the cheese. You do what you see fit. Cooking them in a cast iron skillet would be remarkable.
  8. Don't forget to cook your bacon! Fry in a skillet. Or, I put mine in the oven at 375 for 12 to 15 minutes depending on your oven the cooking time may vary.
  9. Once your burgers are cooked, assemble them the way you see fit.
