a nice twist to the juicy lucy. to simplify things i ran the cream cheese, ancho chili powder, cumin, dried onion, and jalapeno to the food processor and spooned the mixture onto the patties. if stuffing the burger is too adventurous for you, the mixture can be used as a spread on top of the burger.

I'm always looking for new burger recipes. I just hate plan cheeseburgers. I really like to spice things up with trying new recipes and this recipe is definitely a keeper. The filling really gives a nice flavor to the burger. Thanks for sharing!

I halved this recipe, but endedup making 4 burgers instead of 3. I used ground turkey instead of ground beef, fat free cream cheese, ommitted the cumin (didn't have any, and used regular chili powder with a dash of cayenne instead of ancho chili powder(didn't have any). These were delicious. It was too hot to grill and so we cooked them at 350 degrees for about 20 mintues, and they were med-well to well done (the way we like them). I would have preferred a little more cheese in mine, but that was my fault for making more patties the recipe called for and therefore using less filling in each, so I didn't let that affect my review. They were definitely something different, and yummy. We used a giant jalepeno (the ones at our grocery store were HUGE last week) seeds and all because we don't mind the heat, but the cream cheese helped neutralize the heat for the most part. We will defintiely make these again, although I think I will add more garlic, onion powder, and worchestichire sauce b/c I felt like they got a little lost under the jalapeno. Thanks for sharing!

These were sooo good! I only made two, and used half a jalepeno. That was just a bit too spicy for me but my husband loved it! Will be making these again, for sure....just with a little less pepper!

These were fantastic. Thanks for the great recipe. I also had trouble making the patties thin enough, so I ended up with 5 larger burgers. Also, while I used about 3 T of jalapeno, my husband still thought it needed a little more spice, so I will leave the seeds in next time.

We liked these a lot. I had trouble making the 12 small thin patties so I ended up making only 8 = 4 BIG burgers. I used a whole jalepeno - seeds and all which was about 2 1/2 TBL. Husband and dinner guest said that was a smidge too much. Also used low fat cream cheese and overall we enjoyed these burgers very very much. Next time will do 1 - 1 1/2 TBL jalepeno or scrape the seeds to make a tidbit less spicy.

These were interesting but we like them. I think next time I will cut the amount of cream cheese in half because it seemed to overpower the flavor of the meat too much for me.

These were really yummy! What a nice change from the same old burgers! We will have these often throughout the summer. Can't wait to try them over the 4th of July with my family!
