Firecracker Burgers

Firecracker Burgers

1 pound lean ground beef

1/4 C. chunky salsa

4 frozen breaded cheddar cheese jalapeno peppers, thawed

1/4 C. guacamole

4 hamburger buns, split and toasted

4 lettuce leaves

1/4 C. salsa con queso dip

1/4 C. sliced plum tomatoes

2 tsp. sliced ripe olives

4 thin slices sweet onion


In a 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. Grill, covered, over medium-hot heat for 7-8 minutes on each side or until meat is no longer pink. Spread guacamole over toasted side of bun tops. On each bun bottom, layer lettuce, a burger, con queso dip, tomatoes, olives and onion; replace tops. Yield: 4 servings.
