    TasteTester's Note:

    Here's a great recipe for a burger to wow the tailgating crowd, or for any gathering of friends/family. The topping has tangy zing to it, and the hamburger mixture is made with some ingredients you don't usually see in the mix. Aged cheddar or a smoked provolone cheese will add the final touch to this new twist on the standard hamburger. Goes great with baked beans, corn, or any of your usual tailgating side dishes.

      Great tasting burger. I used pepper jack cheese to try and carry on the jalapeno theme... I was out of provolone. I think both would work well with the burger and sauce. Great recipe for Sunday Pro Football. Thanks for posting. Made for TYM tag.
