Jalapeno cream cheese hides inside a juicy burger for a super awesome grill out meal.
Total Time:20 minutes
Yield:4 burgers 1x
2 jalapenos, tops removed, split down the center, and deseeded
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 pound ground beef
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
4 hamburger buns
4 slices of your favorite cheese
Your favorite burger toppings
If you have a food processor, use it to chop up your jalapenos until they’re as small as you’d like. Add the cream cheese to the food processor and process until combined. If you don’t have a food processor, chop up your jalapenos and stir them into your cream cheese.
Add your seasonings and Worcestershire sauce to your meat, and give it a quick mix with your hands. Divide the meat into four equal parts, and then divide each of those in two. Flatten out and shape each section into a thin patty. We’re going to put two together, so make them as thin as you can.
Put a spoonful of your cream cheese mixture into the center of one of your patties, then top that with another patty. Gently press the edges together so your cream cheese is sealed inside. Repeat this for all the burgers.
Stash your burger patties in the fridge or on ice until you’re ready to cook. Four hours is fine as long as they’re cold.
Cook your burgers in your vessel of choice over medium high heat until they reach your desired level of doneness. I do about 5 minutes a side.
Put it on a bun, add your favorite toppings, and eat til you drop.
