Jalapeno BBQ Burgers Recipe

Makes: 4

This is from my own web site at Chili Pepper Madness – We love cooking with chili peppers and spicy food.

  • 3 or 4 jalapeno peppers, coarsely chopped
  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder (or habanero dust – hot!)
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
  • ½ cup barbeque sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients. Mix until the seasonings are uniformly distributed through the meat.
  2. Create 4 large ½ pound burger patties.
  3. Heat grill to 350 degrees, or medium flame.
  4. Place burger patties on the greased grill and cover. Cook approximately 5 minutes each side, or until desired doneness.
  5. Toast buns, if desired. You only need a couple of minutes to toast them.
  6. Serve the burgers with your favorite condiments.
