This Jalapeno Cheddar Burger is seriously good - like I want to eat five burgers good. It's packed with jalapenos, red onion, and cheddar cheese and full of flavor. It's my favorite burger to serve to anyone who claims you can't make a good burger with lean ground meat. It always changes their mind since these burgers are full of flavor and stay moist from the cheese.

In terms of the burger itself, you can play around with how much spice you like. I usually make it with one seeded and deveined jalapeno so its just a touch spicy and palatable for everyone. Then I top it with some grilled jalapenos to crank up the heat and get it nice and spicy for me.

Just as good if not better than the gourmet burgers at Fresh Market. Left out the onion because i don't care for it.
