Popper Beef Burger
This recipe was a finalist in the 1999 National Beef Cook-Off.
- 1 pound lean ground beef
- 1/4 cup prepared thick-and-chunky salsa
- 4 frozen cream cheese-stuffed jalapeno peppers
- 1/4 cup prepared chile con queso
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh plum tomato
- 2 tablespoons sliced pitted ripe olives
- 4 hamburger buns
Combine the ground beef and salsa in a large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly.
Divide the beef mixture into 4 equal portions and lightly flatten into thin patties. Place 1 stuffed pepper in the center of each patty. Wrap the beef around the pepper to enclose, sealing seams and forming a ball. Flatten the balls into patties 4 to 5 inches across and 1 inch thick.
Place the patties on a grill over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill covered, 15 to 16 minutes to 165 degrees F internal temperature, turning occasionally.
Spread 1 tablespoon chile con queso evenly over the top of each burger. Sprinkle with the tomato and olives and serve on hamburger buns with additional salsa as desired.
