Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Combine ground beef and 1/4 cup salsa in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly.
  2. Divide beef mixture into 4 equal portions and lightly flatten into thin patties.
  3. Place one stuffed pepper in center of each patty. Wrap the beef around the pepper to enclose, sealing seams and forming a ball. Flatten balls into patties about 4 to 5-inches across and 1-inch thick.
  4. Place patties on grill over medium ash-covered coals. Grill covered, 15 to 16 minutes to 165°F internal temperature, turning occasionally.
  5. Spread 1 tablespoon chile con queso evenly over top of each burger. Sprinkle with tomato and olives and serve on hamburger buns with additional salsa as desired.

I made this recipe exactly as written with no deviations. This is an excellent hamburger and very unusual. I cannot say that I would change anything in the recipe next time except for the con queso I would switch out with pepper jack cheese.
