These Jalapeno & cheddar stuffed burgers recipe
1 pound ground beef
1 package McCormick Grill Mates Smoky Applewood Steakhouse Burgers Seasoning Mix
2 jalapeño chilies, seeded and sliced thin crosswise (1/4-inch thick)
9 tablespoons finely-shredded Cheddar cheese (or finely-shredded Mexican cheese blend), divided
3 crusty rolls, such as Kaiser rolls
1/2 cup arugula leaves
3 tomato slices
3 red onion slices
Mix ground beef and seasoning mix until well blended. Divide ground beef mixture evenly in 6 balls. Form each into a thin patty.
For each burger, sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the shredded cheese on 1 patty. Top with about 4 chile slices and additional 2 tablespoons cheese. Top with second patty, pressing edges to seal. Repeat to form a total of 3 burgers.
Grill burgers over medium heat 5 to 6 minutes per side or until cooked through (internal temperature of 160°F). Serve burgers on rolls topped with arugula, tomato, onion and desired condiments.
