Jalapeño Burgers

We had such a bumper crop of Jalapeño peppers in our garden this year that they are finding their way into our everyday meals and we are loving the flavour and a bit of heat.
If you are not fond of hot peppers...take the seeds and the white parts out before you add to the food processor.  We grill all year!
  •  1 small onion
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, stem removed
  • 1 green onion
  • small handful parsley
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 pounds good quality ground beef
  1. Roughly chop onion, jalapeño, green onion, and parsley and place in a food processor bowl.
  2. Pulse until the vegetables are finely minced.  Add the Worcestershire sauce, egg and salt and pulse to combine.
  3. Add the ground beef and pulse just until combined.
  4. Form into 5 - 6 patties and grill over hot coals until the center is no longer pink.
  5. Serve with shredded cheese, caramelized mushrooms, onions and Roasted Garlic and Chili Mayo on Thin Multigrain buns.


  1. I really, really, really need a simple but great recipe for the canned pork I did this summer. Cant seem to get a recipe that works well. Any suggestions

  2. These girls can't possibly know everything, that is what google is for.
    This is what google says about canned pork, good luck with that dindin.

    1. Aww...thanks for helping. You are right. We sure don't know everything.

  3. Lovella - this looks so delicious! I love those thin buns and must try your version of the beef patty with yummy Jalapeño peppers - sounds great!

  4. Next on the list once I show my cook this one! Looks delicious!

  5. thank you for another yummy recipe! our favorite here in Northern CA is to roast whole Jalepenos at 350F for about 25 minutes to very limp and getting brown, cool, freeze separately, then into baggie for long term freezing; add some to a jar of oil for the fridge and into soup, stew, over Spanish rice, smear one with butter for that morning bagel and even into savory smoothie! Enjoy this beautiful autumn.

    1. Thank you so much. I bet I could do this with the ones I froze whole too.

  6. Now that you put this recipe into the ball park:) Do you have a recipe for what the resturants have been doing with the onions, they saute them ever so slightly, just to make them not hard circles, then the coat them with a bread crumb mixture... p.s. I know you don't know every thing but you do know a lot:)

  7. This sounds like it would be right up our alley! We love jalapenos in so many things...
