I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO POPULAR!!!
I served up these burgers at a big corporate picnic where there was a burger making contest. I made this recipe exactly the way it was posted and I took first place out of 7 teams representing 20 cooks. I made them into 1/2 patties, put the roasted Jalepenos on top and melted Tilamook Pepper Jack cheese over them. All on an Infared Grill, of course. Best dang burger I have ever had!
These were okay. The fritos were soggy in the cooked meat. I ate a few bites.. wasn't for me but my family thought they were good.
I have used this site for about 20 recipes and 5 different burgers. This is BY FAR the best burger on this site so far and probably also the best burger I have ever tasted. Follow the ingrediants exactly and use about half the seeds for a great burger. I want to eat these burgers for all my meals!!!
I left out the jalapeno peppers because my dad cannot tolerate spicy food, but next time I will put in 1 or 2 peppers because it seemed like the burgurs could handle some more kick. But even without the peppers, my family devoured these burgurs!!
UPDATE: I made these for a 4th of July bbq, so I left out the jalapenos (again) because not everyone likes spicy. But to keep the kick in the burger, I doubled all of the spices (I tripled the garlic), added lots of fresh parsley and some ground turkey and EVERYONE went nuts. They were probably the best burgurs that I have ever made.
these are great! For those of you that didn't think it was spicy enough make sure you add the jalapeno seeds. I added about half, and combined with the pepper jack cheese they were plenty spicy.
AWESOME! I have cooked these burgers 4 times now and they get better everytime. Always grilled them, and made some alterations. For people who dont want the spicy, I've switched the jalepenos for chiles and that was all it needed. I've also added another egg to hold it all together, a full bag of chili cheese fritos instead of regular, and MOST IMPORTANT, a half cup of blue mon beer! They are so good, we will never cook regular burgers again!
Followed this recipe exactly. I'm from central AZ, so I thought I knew hot. However. These burgers are HOT. My husband couldn't finish his. I am going to make these again, changing the jalapeneo amount to 1/3. Either I got ahold of some amazingly potent peppers, or we are total wimps. I know there's flavor in these burgers, we just had trouble finding it because we were too busy sucking down ice water.
I used sunchips (garden Veggie) because that is what I had on hand. My husband said that these were the best burgers he has even eaten! Great recipe, thanks!
