Chipotle Jack Bacon Burgers
Fantastically flavourful spicy burgers with oozing pockets of cheese and topped with plenty of bacon.
Prep Time 45 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 55 minutes
For each burger you will need:
regular or lean ground beef
Monterrey jack or pepper jack cheese
cut in 1 cm cubes
mashed into a paste (or 1/2 clove finely minced garlic)
hot sauce or 1 tbsp minced fresh jalapeno pepper
crisp cooked smoky bacon
baby lettuce leaves
Combine all the burger ingredients.
Form into patties and cook in a hot, lightly oiled cast iron pan or on a preheated grill until well done (internal temperature with a meat thermometer should read 160 degrees F or higher.
Serve on toasted crusty rolls with crisp cooked bacon, lettuce and tomato. I pve chopped sindried tomatoes on this flavourful burger.
The total cooking time reflects the time it takes to roast the garlic. While it's roasting you can prep all your ingredients and cook the bacon.
