"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!

Burgers are so good and grilled burgers are my favorite, so this recipe enticed me to make them. I am so glad I did! Excellent spiciness from the peppers and cheese. I will be making these when the family comes over so they can enjoy them too! They were so juicy and tender. Make sure you don't press the burgers down with the spatulda. They will lose all the juices and become dry! Thank you for posting!
