  • add   4 frozen breaded cheese-stuffed jalapeno peppers
  • add   1 lb lean ground beef
  • add   1/4 cup salsa con queso (dip)
  • add   2 tablespoons sliced ripe olives
  • add   1/4 cup guacamole
  • add   1/4 cup chunky salsa
  • add   1/4 cup sliced plum tomatoes
  • add   4 slices sweet onions (thin slices)
  • add   4 lettuce leaves
  • add   4 hamburger buns


  1. In a bowl, combine the beef and salsa. Shape into four patties. Place a jalapeno in the center of each; wrap beef around jalapeno, forming a ball. Reshape into patties, about 3-1/2 to 4 inches in diameter and 1 inches thick.
  2. Grill, covered, over medium-hot heat for 7-8 minutes on each side or until meat is no longer pink. Spread guacamole over toasted side of bun tops. On each bun bottom, layer lettuce, a burger, con queso dip, tomatoes, olives and onion; replace tops.
