Units Scale
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2-3 teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • 2 jalapenos or other chili peppers
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 4 slices cheddar with chilies or pepper jack cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chili oil
  • 4 brioche burger buns
  • Lettuce, tomato, and all your favorite burger toppings


  1. Add your ground beef, salt, pepper, and cayenne to a mixing bowl. Use your hands to mix this together and form into four patties. 
  2. Cook your burgers in your favorite way, whether that be on the stove in a cast iron skillet or on a grill outdoors. Cook them over medium heat for about four minutes per side. Add the cheese for the last minute or two of cooking to let it melt a bit. Remove the burgers to a paper towel-lined plate to rest.
  3. To make your chili mayo, cut off the stem and roughly chop a couple of chilies of your choice. Add them to a food processor and pulse to chop. Add your mayo and pulse to mix.
  4. To toast your buns, use a pastry brush to brush some chili oil on the inside of your buns. I toast mine in the same pan I cooked by burgers in on low heat. You could do them on a cooler part of your grill or under the broiler in the oven.
  5. To assemble your burger, apply some chili mayo to both sides of your bun, add your cheese-topped burger patty, and add your favorite burger toppings. Make sure you have plenty of napkins.
