Jalapeno and Queso Fresco Stuffed Burgers

Jaleoeno and Queso Fresco Stuffed Burgers

The great grilling continues with another winning combination in a stuffed burger. This time some locally made queso  fresco artisan cheese from Five Brothers Cheese gets layered with diced fresh jalopeno peppers and stuffed into extra lean ground beef flavored with garlic and even more jalopenos! This is a very flavorful burger with plenty of punch. Plenty of crisp bacon was the only thing my inner meat-a-tarian needed to complete this burger but next time I’m trying it with some fresh homemade salsa as a condiment.

Makes 4 burgers
Jaleoeno and Queso Fresco Stuffed Burgers
Mix together:
2 lbs extra lean ground beef
1 or 2 finely diced jalapeño peppers
1 tbsp chopped fresh thyme
½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp kosher salt
2 tbsp smoked paprika
1 clove minced garlic
1/2 tsp ground cumin
4 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
Form into 8 individual burger patties. On four of the patties, place about 
2 ounces thinly sliced queso fresco cheese layered with a sprinkle of diced jalapeño peppers between the layers of cheese.
Place the remaining four patties over the cheese and pinch the edges together to seal.
Grill over medium high heat  for 4-5 minutes per side or longer if you prefer well-done. Serve on well toasted burger buns with plenty of crispy bacon.
