This time of the year is our family’s FAVORITE time because it’s GRILLING season and we finally have some new dinner options! My husband is from Texas and literally puts hot sauce on everything **EV-ERY-THING**. He loves heat and spice and I’m happy to oblige. I too like a little heat, so when we were out today at Walmart picking up our new swing set (yay!) I grabbed some stuff hoping to make our own tasty Spicy Jalapeno Cheese Burger.

Ground Beef (not pre-formed patties because you need to mix it yourself)


Kraft Shredded Sharp Cheddar

Kraft Jalapeno Cheese Slices

Frank’s Red Hot Sauce (or other hot sauce)

Seasoning as desired (we used Ass Kicking Hot Salt)

Kraft Chipotle Mayo


Other veggie toppings…tomatoes, lettuce, onions, etc.


I started by chopping up some jalapenos and mixing them with sharp cheddar cheese shreds in a bowl and into the hamburger meat. There’s no “exact” amounts to add. I didn’t measure, I just added until I got it looking the way I wanted.

After I mixed it together I formed them into patties. Since only my husband and I wanted spicy burgers we made two spicy and the rest were regular burgers (boooorinng).

put your burger on the grill

My husband is old school with his grilling and INSISTS on using a charcoal grill. He thinks that charcoal makes the food taste better than a gas…and since he’s doing the grilling I don’t argue! 🙂

I picked up some Kraft Chipotle Mayo, as well as Kraft Big Sliced Jalapeno Cheese to add to our burgers…I’m a huge fan of a cheesy burger, so it was great to have the cheddar IN the burger, as well as the spicy cheese on top of the burger!
