Cheesy Jalapeño Pepper-Stuffed Burgers


1 pound Ground Beef (93% lean or leaner)

1/4 cup prepared thick-and-chunky salsa

4 frozen cream cheese or Cheddar cheese-stuffed jalapeño peppers

1/4 cup prepared salsa con queso

1/4 cup chopped fresh plum tomato

2 tablespoons sliced pitted ripe olives

GARNISH: Prepared thick-and-chunky salsa (optional)


  • Combine Ground Beef and 1/4 cup salsa in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Lightly shape into four thin patties. Place one stuffed pepper in center of each patty; wrap beef around pepper to enclose, sealing seams and forming ball. Flatten balls into patties about 4 to 5 inches across and 1 inch thick.

  • Place patties on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 15 to 16 minutes, until instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160°F, turning occasionally.

  • Spread 1 tablespoon salsa con queso evenly over top of each burger. Sprinkle evenly with tomato and olives. Serve with salsa, as desired.
