Mexican culture greatly influences our cuisine, and we eat a lot of spicy foods. In this recipe, the mellow flavor of Swiss cheese cuts the heat of the jalapenos.—Jeanine Richardson, Floresville, Texas
- 2 pounds ground beef
- 4 slices Swiss cheese
- 1 small onion, thinly sliced
- 2 to 3 pickled jalapeno peppers, seeded and julienned
