Cheesy Jalapeno Pepper-Stuffed Burgers

Total recipe time: 30 minutes Makes 4 servings


  1. 1 pound ground round
  2. 1/4 cup prepared thick-and-chunky salsa
  3. 4 frozen cream cheese or Cheddar cheese-stuffed jalapeno peppers
  4. 1/4 cup prepared salsa con queso
  5. 1/4 cup chopped fresh plum tomato
  6. 2 tablespoons sliced pitted ripe olives
  7. Prepared thick-and-chunky salsa


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Spread 1 tablespoon salsa con queso evenly over top of each burger. Sprinkle evenly with tomato and olives. Serve with salsa, as desired.
