"These are the BEST burgers I've ever had. My mother made a version of these and I changed it a little....instead of Jalapeno peppers you can add ANYTHING or just do the cream cheese...trust me...you're family and/or guests will BEG for the recipe!" — Noelle C :)

seeded and chopped jalapeno pepper
2 (8 ounce) packages
cream cheese, softened
hamburger buns, split
I made this the other night and my boyfriend and I absolutely loved it. I used a jar of mild sliced jalapenos and a container of chive and onion cream cheese. We threw the cream cheese, meat, and jalapenos in a Kitchen Aid mixer and mixed it up until it was all nice and pink. This broke up the jalapenos a bit. We were a little concerned that the meat being mixed so much wouldn't patty well or hold together, but we were wrong. Mixing it a lot also gave the burgers a really great light texture that brought out the flavors. We didn't have a grill at the time, so we cooked the burgers in a skillet and they came out great. We wished we hadn't scaled down the recipe so we would have lots of left-overs.
Good flavor, but the recipe as written is too messy. I've made this twice and, for the life of me, can't get the burgers to hold together with the cream cheese stuffed in the middle. I recommend using the jalapeno cream cheese as a spread on the bun instead.
These burgers Are GREAT!!! I would recommend putting the cream cheese in the middle. I tryed both ways, mixing and stuffing the burgers. There IS a taste differance. Mixing it together was like eating a meatloaf burger, putting the stuffing in the middle made for a tastier burger. RECOMMEND BACON!!!
This tastes amazing! The only thing I found was using mustard, ketchup, relish etc. with these kind of took away from the cream cheese flavour. I would maybe just use a bit of mayo and veggies (lettuce, tomato, onion) and try to stay away from any over powering condiments/sauces.
Okay, these were AWESOME....with a few changes. I added only about 1 1/2 cups of FINELY diced jalapeno (seeds and membranes removed) along with the 8 oz block of softened cream cheese. Then I just mixed the mixture into the meat and made patties. We then grilled on a well-oiled grill. They turned out great! Next time, we plan to top them with bacon...YUM!
These were great! We followed the advice of one reviewer who suggested mixing the cream cheese and jalepenos into the burger. Next time we won't mix all of the cream cheese, as the patties didn't hold together very well, but will save some cream cheese to melt on the top. The flavor and texture was incredible thought!
This is the only way I'll be making my burgers from now on! If you like jalapeño poppers, you'll LOVE this! I chopped up jalapeños that were in a jar (all that I had) and mixed that into the meat. Then took regular cream cheese and spread a good amount onto the burger. It was FANTASTIC! I can't believe no restaurants have this type of burger. Could definitely serve this in a restaurant and it'd be a hit!
Holy Hamburger Heaven! Need I say more?
I too mixed only 1 pkg of herb and garlic cream cheese right into the meat.
