This is one of our favorite dinners.  It’s delicious and it doesn’t take much time to make!


1 lb. lean ground beef (I use 93%)

1/8 c. panko bread crumbs

1 egg

1 jalapeno (sliced into small pieces- leave the seeds)

1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese (or as much as you want)

Salt and pepper

*You can add red pepper flakes if you want it to be really spicy! 🙂
Combine all your ingredients.  Be careful/ use gloves when handling the jalapeno (don’t burn yourself!) Divide meat mixture into 4 parts and form patties.  Grill or cook on stove top until juices run brown.

We ate it last night with guacamole and it was AMAZING.  I like this guacamole recipe but add some diced tomatoes to it.
