Dave's Ultimate Cheeseburgers Recipe
Jalapeno peppers and shredded Monterey Jack cheese add a nice touch to this wonderful cheeseburger recipe which was shared with me by my good friend Dave Cald.
Prep: 20 minutes
Chill: 1 hour
Grill: 15 minutes
Yields: 6 cheeseburgers
- 2 lbs lean ground beef
- 4 jalapeno peppers, seeded and finely chopped
- 1 medium onion, finely chopped
- 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
- 3 Tbsp chili powder
- 4 large hamburger buns, split and toasted
- 1 1/2 tsp salt
- 3/4 tsp black pepper
- Combine the jalapeno peppers, onion, chili powder, salt, and black pepper in a large bowl. Add the ground beef, and mix well.
- Form the ground beef mixture into 6 evenly sized 3/4" thick patties. Lay the burger patties on a tray; cover and refrigerate for about an hour.
- When using a charcoal grill, place the patties on the rack directly over medium hot coals. Keep the grill uncovered and grill the burgers for about 8 minutes; flip them and continue grilling for another 6 to 8 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F. During the final minute of grilling, sprinkle the shredded Monterey Jack cheese on top of the burgers. When using a propane grill, preheat your grill then reduce the heat to medium. Place the burgers on the rack, close the cover, and grill as instructed above.
- Serve the burgers on split and toasted buns with an assortment of condiments such as lettuce, tomato, pickles, etc. as desired. Enjoy!
