Yummy burger. We were in the mood for a spicy burger and this really hit the spot. Thanks for sharing. Made for What's on the Menu tag.

"A thick, spicy, moist burger with attitude." You got that right Fauve!! All these bad boys needed was a little fresh ground pepper and some good old kosher salt. Oh ya...

I used 80/20% lean burger. I cut the recipe in 1/2 and out of the 1 1/2 lbs. I got 4 good sized burgers. Loved the kick of the jalapenos, and with the cheese addition, I felt like I was in little Mexico :) I served with ketchup and salsa mixed together on top, and sour cream on top of that with some chopped onion. Now THIS is a burger. Awesome!!! Thanks Fauve!
