onion, finely chopped
hot pepper sauce (e.g. Tabasco™)
dry bread crumbs
salt and pepper to taste
shredded Monterey Jack cheese
fresh red chile pepper, finely chopped
pickled jalapeno pepper, finely chopped
These were pretty darn good. I used Italian bread crumbs and omitted the egg and added about 1/4 of really cold, cold water. Just don't like my burgers tasting like meatloaf and the water makes for a juicier hamburger. The peppers gave a great jolt. Thanks for the post.
It was a bad idea to put jalapeno/chile peppers and cheese in the middle of the burger. The cheese has all melted out and it was not pleasant to bite into the hot stuff only in the middle. I would just add/mix jalapeno/chile peppers with ground beef so you can taste it with every bite (adjust the amount by your taste).
Delicious! I used pepper jack cheese instead of the peppers and monterey jack called for, and I was out of bread crumbs so I sub'd crushed corn flakes. Oh, and I threw in about a half a package of chili seasoning to the meat mixture. Served it with homemade buns (fron the site) and my hubby loved it =) Thanks for a great recipe! I'll defiantely make this again!
Very Good. I made them exactly as stated, but cooked them on the stove top instead of the oven. They tasted like meatloaf. I made them for christmas dinner, and I got away with it. I called them Christmas burgers, because they had a red, white, and green present on the inside. Thanks!
I have to give this only *** because as others said, it tasted more like meatloaf. So taking that into consideration I served it as meatloaf. I used habanero sauce for the hot sauce and I increased the amount of cheese to a cup! Then took the meat and divided it in half, flattened it out, put the topping on and covered that with the other meat portion. Made certain it was sealed all around so the cheese would not leak out. It was very good as supper and the next day we had it cold for sandwiches. If I rated it as a meatloaf I'd give it a 5*s !
Ok, well I didn't want to go to the store today, so I made a few substitutions - homemade hot sauce for Tabasco; diced chipotle peppers from a can; regular extra-sharp Cheddar - and although they were WAY too spicy for me, Husband really loved them. Thanks so much!
I changed the recipe a little to suit my taste - I didn't add the bread crumbs or egg and I threw in a couple tablespoons of worchestershire sauce and a dash of beer. Instead of using jalapenos, I used diced green chilis. They were awesome and I really appreciated the creativity of adding spice and cheese to the center of the burger. I made them for a big cookout and they were a huge hit! Thanks for the recipe!
These are awesome! Both me and my husband love them. I used some green chilies also in the pepper mixture.
