I was so excited to make this recipe, but needed to find a way to easy it up a bit. Just because I had hours available Monday to prepare dinner doesn't mean I always do so if there was going to be a chance of me making these burgers again I needed to cut back on some of the prep.
Here is my altered ingredient list:
Jalapeno Popper Burger Recipe
6 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon paprika
2 pounds ground beef
6 slices pepper Jack cheese
6 hamburger buns
A few of my substitutions were geared towards my husband's tastes but unfortunately they made the burgers a little hot for me. So hot, in fact, that I wasn't able to actually eat my burger. :( Instead, I sort of nibbled around the outside and then gave my husband the inner circle containing all the spicy jalapeno chunks.
The Hubs did, however, love his burger! He actually called it "The Best Burger Ever." I'm beaming with pride!
