Updated on March 8, 2014
5 stars from 16 ratings of 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.

Cook Time

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
  • condiments


  1. Combine the jalapeno peppers, onion, chili powder, salt, and black pepper in a large bowl. Add the ground beef, and mix well.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Serve the burgers on split and toasted buns with an assortment of condiments such as lettuce, tomato, pickles, etc. as desired. Enjoy!
