These were pretty darn good. I used Italian bread crumbs and omitted the egg and added about 1/4 of really cold, cold water. Just don't like my burgers tasting like meatloaf and the water makes for a juicier hamburger. The peppers gave a great jolt. Thanks for the post.



Delicious! I used pepper jack cheese instead of the peppers and monterey jack called for, and I was out of bread crumbs so I sub'd crushed corn flakes. Oh, and I threw in about a half a package of chili seasoning to the meat mixture. Served it with homemade buns (fron the site) and my hubby loved it =) Thanks for a great recipe! I'll defiantely make this again!



It was a bad idea to put jalapeno/chile peppers and cheese in the middle of the burger. The cheese has all melted out and it was not pleasant to bite into the hot stuff only in the middle. I would just add/mix jalapeno/chile peppers with ground beef so you can taste it with every bite (adjust the amount by your taste).
