We love those fried jalapeno poppers you'd get from the deli counter, full of gooey cream cheese, Mmm. So when I saw this recipe I had to try it out. These were great, everything I remember in a popper. These burgers were a little messy while grilling but so delicious otherwise. They weren't too spicy, so you can add more or less jalapenos (with seeds) to your liking.
Jalapeno Popper Burgers
inspired from Taste of Home, serves 4
1 can (4 ounces) diced jalapeno peppers, drained
4 ounces reduced-fat Neufchatel cream cheese
1/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
2 pounds ground beef (ground chicken would be great too)
In a bowl, combine the jalapenos, and cheeses together. Form 8 even sized patties from ground beef (these are great), add about a heaping Tablespooon of cheese mixture to center of one patty. Place another patty on top and press edges closed. Season with salt and pepper. Grill about 4 minutes per side on low-medium heat. Top with your favorite toppings. Enjoy the slightly spicy melty gooeyness.
