Crispy Jalapeno Burger

Juicy. Spicy. Gooey. Crunchy. Saucy. Melty.

Blue Cheese Stuffed Jalapeño Burgers

Craving a juicy burger but know you’ll regret it if you eat an unhealthy, greasy, who knows what’s in it, burger at the local drivethru?  Well, you’re in luck.  These burgers are so easy, but flavorful, they’d be ready to eat before you even had the chance to put on some clothes and drive out in the frigid weather!   Well, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but they are really really easy.  And, because you can control what goes in them and on them and in between them, they are healthier (ish) than fast food....more
