This is one of my adopted recipes. I have not made it yet, so I have not made any changes other than changing the name to better describe the food.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all the ingredients together except the cheese slices and chiles.
  2. Shape the mixture into 12 thin patties, each about 3 1/2-inches in diameter.
  3. Place 1 cheese slice and 1 tsp of the chiles on each of 6 patties.
  4. Top with the remaining 6 patties sealing the edges firmly.
  5. Broil or grill the patties 4-inches from the heat, turning once, until the desired doneness is reached, about 10 to 15 minutes.

This was a yummy alternative to a plain hamburger, especially since I don't eat bread. I was a little afraid of the "burger stuffing" process, but it really wasn't that hard, and was definitely worth it. I used shredded cheddar cheese and canned jalapenos. The jalapenos made it a little hotter than the ordinary canned chiles, but my husband still ate it, and said it "was't unbearable." Believe me, that is an approval from him ;)

This is a really good recipe, especially for us venison users. I used 1 lb. of venison and the same amount of spices as written, then added an egg to hold the burgers together (made 4 burgers). Thanks, Jellyqueen!

Yum! I used only 3/4 lb of lean ground beef but the full spice amounts. I used all garlic salt. I only made 4 patties to make 2 larger burgers. I stuffed them with canned whole mild green chilies and shredded cheddar. I broiled them about 8-9 minutes per side. We ate them without any buns and recipe#185647. Very, very good! Thanks for a keeper recipe Jellyqueen! Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders game.
