This was made as a demonstration for the 25th Anniversary at our local Sam's Club this weekend. I have not made them yet, but tried the ones they made and it was wonderful!! Will definitely be making when it warms up and we can BBQ and picnic outside...

Yum! After all of the parts are assembled these go together quickly. I was almost afraid of using the full 3 T of grill spices (I was using montreal) and 1/2 cup of jalapenos (I seeded them), but plunged ahead anyway. The patties ARE spicy, but not over the top hot. the patties are very generous servings. I used prepared tortilla strips from the salad aisle rather than chips and served with Sweet Potato Fries #478530 by threeovens. Thank you for a terrific meal!

Made for ZWT-8 because 1 of my greatest pleasures is giving into my "hamburger hunger". They try here in Iceland, but they just can't match US stds. My DH absent on a fishing trip, I halved your recipe. Even then it made 2 huge portions, but I liked that & suspect it was the point. The caramelized onions were divine! I did reduce the "jalapeno heat" by half & pan-grill them vs the outdoor grill w/DH gone. I was so in "hamburger heaven" that I got stingy & froze burger #2 for another time when "hamb hunger" overpowers me again. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. Yum!

This is a really nice restaurant burger. Very easy to put together. We used american cheese rather than provolone. I replaced guacamole for ketchup on my burger, but DH went with the guac because he likes it. It's got a nice kick to it too from the jalapenos. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
