grass-fed ground beef
sliced cheddar cheese
salt and pepper
Preheat grill to medium heat. Once hot, place jalapeños on grates. Close lid and cook 2 minutes. Turn and repeat. Total cook time is about 6 minutes. Jalapeños should begin to have black grill marks on and begin to soften. You don't want them super soft like roasted peppers.
Remove jalapeños and allow to cool. Slice into rounds and set aside.
To prepare burgers begin by dividing the meat into four 6-ounce portions. Sprinkle each with a bit of salt and pepper.
Take each portion and slice in half. Use the palm of your hand to smash each half into a flat patty so you have two 3-ounce patties per burger.
Layer one 3-ounce patty with 1-ounce cheddar cheese and 5 to 7 sliced jalapenos. Place the remaining 3-ounce burger patty on top and press together the sides until the burger is totally sealed. Repeat until all four burgers are complete.
Place burgers on grates of preheated grill (to medium heat). Allow to cook undisturbed for 5 to 6 minutes on one side before flipping. Flip and continue cooking on other side until both sides are browned and burger is cooked to desired temperature. 10 to 12 minutes for a 6-ounce stuffed burger will usually yield a burger cooked to "medium" temperature. If you prefer your burger more well done, cook an additional 1 to 2 minutes per side.
Serve with your favorite toppings wrapped in lettuce or on a bun and Enjoy!
