Fiery Jalapeño Cheddar Burgers

These Fiery Jalapeño Cheddar Burgers are one of my favourite weeknight recipes because they’re quick and easy but so full of flavour – it’s kind of like jalapeño poppers but in burger form.

If you’re into spicy but not “Wow, my mouth is on fire! I love spicy things,” you’ll love this recipe. They have a little kick but won’t leave you wanting to guzzle a gallon of water. Along with minced jalapeño, the recipe calls for an essential taco spice blend to season the ground beef making the burgers even more delicious and full of flavour. Then top these jalapeño cheddar burgers off with melted cheddar cheese, and you have a tasty burger.
