Firecracker Burgers Recipe

“These tasty stuffed burgers are perfect July 4th fare,” suggests field editor Kelly Williams of LaPorte, Indiana. “They’re great with a cool, creamy macaroni salad and an icy cold drink!”
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Grill: 15 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1/4 cup chunky salsa
  • 4 frozen breaded cheddar cheese jalapeno peppers, thawed
  • 4 hamburger buns, split and toasted
  • 1/4 cup guacamole
  • 4 lettuce leaves
  • 1/4 cup salsa con queso dip
  • 1/4 cup sliced plum tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons sliced ripe olives
  • 4 thin slices sweet onion

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the beef and salsa. Shape into four patties. Place a jalapeno in the center of each; wrap beef around jalapeno, forming a ball. Reshape into patties, about 3-1/2 to 4 in. in diameter and 1 in. thick.
  • 2. Grill, covered, over medium-hot heat for 7-8 minutes on each side or until meat is no longer pink and a thermometer reads 160°.
  • 3. Spread bun tops with guacamole. On each bun bottom, layer lettuce, a burger, salsa con queso dip, tomatoes, olives and onion; replace tops. Yield: 4 servings.

"I must warn you... this burger is very messy to eat, but it's so worth it! I love it. I make my own nacho sauce, instead of the store-bought, which I like better. I think these are delicious and definitely worth trying."
