Smokey Jalapeno Burgers

Last week was very busy,  which in turn, meant a slow reading week for me, so instead of a  "It's Monday, What are you Reading?" ( same thing as last week) post,  I thought I'd share with you what we ate last week instead.

And that would be---hamburgers.  Not just any hamburger, but a Smokey Jalapeno Burger.  I do not know exactly where I got the recipe, but I know it is off the Internet, so if you feel you made it first, please send me a note and I will be happy to THANK YOU (and give you credit), because this is such a great hamburger....a keeper.  One I will make again.  In fact, I already have ... I made it twice in last week.
It's a good, juicy, smoky and spicy burger. With bacon!  I don't know what else to say about it.
The chipotle sauce gives it a good smokey flavor and the jalapenos on top gave the perfect amount of spice.  The pepper-jack cheese was good too, altho next time I just might use a good cheddar.  I like cheddar.  And I might shred it instead of using the slices.  I like the texture of melty shredded cheese.

Anyway enough of is the burger recipe.

Smoky Bacon Jalapeno Burgers
1 pound ground beef
1/4 cup chipolte sauce (I could not find chipolte sauce, so I used chipolte bbq sauce.  who knows....maybe that's what it meant in the first place.  It was good)
1/2 red onion, diced
Montreal Steak Seasoning

4 oz pepper-jack cheese slices
1 slice bacon per burger (I used two)
pickled jalapeno slices, to taste
buns or Texas toast

1.  Mix ground beef, chipolte sauce and diced red onion by hand  until thoroughly combined.
2.  pat into  3 or 4 burgers.  Sprinkle the tops with the Montreal Steak Seasoning
3.  Grill the burgers,  top with the cheese
4.  spread the bun with mayo and top the burger with the jalapenos and bacon.


I just got back from my birding weekend!  It was so much fun... will be posting about that soon. Very soon.
