Jalapeño Cheddar Burgers

burger recipe, how to grill, nfl, tailgate recipes, how to use charcoal

I’m from Kentucky, and this time of year that means everywhere I go there’s either a football game playing or someone talking about football.And while I may not be THE biggest sports fan (I do enjoy the U of L vs U.K. game every year though) there’s one thing I can get behind during football season, and that’s the food that goes along with it. 

I’ll fully admit to being that guy that goes to football games and tailgates for the soul purpose of enjoying a burger (or two) and a couple of beers. Maybe it has something with me being from the south, but food has a certain way of bringing people from all walks of life together, especially when it’s BBQ related. 

When I was in Chicago last I had Jalapeño Cheddar Burgers before heading to a ball game, and when it came time for me to host a little game day BBQ at my house I knew exactly what to fire up on the grill. While no one in Louisville can agree on what team(s) to support there’s one thing we can all agree on, and that’s how much we love food. I made extra burgers to have for lunch the rest of the week, but I only ended up having one leftover burger – if that tells you anything about how good they tasted. Ready to try them for yourself? Then you’re in luck cause my Jalapeño Cheddar Burgers recipe only has a few ingredients, and they’re ready in less than 15 minutes. What’s not to love?

    […] content headed your way over the next few weeks (now’s the perfect chance to check out the Jalapeño Cheddar Burgers from earlier this week), and that means I’m having to learn to step up my food photography […]

    Uh, yeah! This burger speaks to me, it’s my spirit burger. IfI was to be a burger in another life, it would be this one

    Yum!! Jalapeno anything is delish. I highly recommend putting a dollop of peanut butter right on top of that burger. Sounds very strange but it’s oh so good. 🙂

      Not strange at all! I love peanut butter with my chili, so it makes sense.
