Recipe: Jalapena Burgers

These Jalapena Burgers are just terrific…. a great variation on the good ole American Burger.

Recently we discovered Jalapena Burgers…. We like spicy food and these are terrific. Warren found the pre-made kind… and that’s what we tried first.. put by now you know me well enough to know… when I try something we like… I just have to try it from scratch… I found a jalapena burger recipe on and adapted it slightly.

They’re simple to make… and again the possibilities are endless… you can add onions for variety (as I have) or just add the jalapena peppers and the suggested seasonings…. make them as hot or mild as you and your family prefer…

Make it a true Mexican Night and serve these with Corn and Green Chili Rice and maybe a plate of nachos…. Margaritas or my Sangria Punch by the pitcher for the adults… it’s a great idea for a get-together or maybe just a great family night…. either way… Enjoy!
