When I was young my mother would reward me for practicing the piano. My favorite request was a trip into town,to the only gas station for miles around, and I would get my favorite food on earth; Jalapeno Poppers! This burger is inspired by my favorite childhood treat! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

How to Make Stuffed Jalapeno Popper Burgers

Step-by-Step

  1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, chilies, and shredded cheese. Mix on high speed until thoroughly combined. Set aside in freezer.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine ground beef and 1 cup salsa verde and egg; lightly mix until combined.
    divide into 8 equal portions, divide each portion into two 1/4 in. thick patties. Place a generous tablespoon of chilled cream cheese mixture in the centers of half the patties, slightly spread cheese mixture leaving a border of meat around edge. Top with remaining patties; pinch to seal edges.
  3. Place burgers on grill at medium high heat; grill for 5 minutes then carefully flip patties. Cook an additional 2 minutes then spread remaining chili-cheese mixture on top of each burger (1 to 2 tablespoons)close the grill lid and cook until cheese is melted or bubbled (about 2-3 more minutes.)Also place buns on grill, cut side down and grill until just "toasty". Burgers are done when internal temp. reaches 158-160*F. Serve patties on bun, with onion, tomato,cilantro, desired amount of jalapenos and lettuce. Enjoy hot!
