Jalapeno BBQ Burgers

Here’s a nice twist for grilling this summer. You’ve got some barbeque tanginess and flavor, with the wonderful heat of the jalapeno. As noted in the recipe, you can substitute the chili powder with habanero dust, but beware! It’ll really bring in an extra kick for you.


  • 3 or 4 jalapeno peppers, coarsely chopped
  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder (or habanero dust – hot!)
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
  • ½ cup barbeque sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste.

Cooking Directions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients. Mix until the seasonings are uniformly distributed through the meat.
  2. Create 4 large ½ pound burger patties.
  3. Refrigerate one hour until firm.
  4. Heat grill to 350 degrees, or medium flame.
  5. Place burger patties on the greased grill and cover. Cook approximately 5 minutes each side.
  6. Toast buns, if desired. You only need a couple of minutes to toast them.
  7. Serve the burgers on the buns with your favorite condiments.
