Old West Style Cowboy Jack’s Jalapeño Bleu Burgers! Yee Haw!

Burger2Jalapeno with a Capital “J” This cheesy, juicy burger combines many flavors of the Old West and packs a little punch–just a little 😉 Spicy, sweet and slightly salty with an extra added kick! Serve with potato salad, Cowboy beans (the recipe will be served up shortly) and a crunchy ear of grilled yellow corn…Tarnation! Rattle your hocks and get out the tarantula juice! Wagon Train, Ho! Email me for the interpretation 😉


2 lbs ground beef

6 jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped–watch out for those seeds! If you want a little more “heat in the meat” add a few

1 cup crumbled bleu cheese; feta may be substituted

1/4 cup finely minced onions

2 teaspoons minced garlic

2 tablespoons soy sauce

6 slices pepper jack cheese

6 hamburger buns, split

1/2 cup Southwestern mayonnaise, add 1/2 teaspoon each, cumin and chili powder, plus 1 tablespoon of Jim Beam or good quality whiskey to mayo

1/4 cup BBQ sauce

2 tomatoes, sliced

1 avocado, peeled & sliced

6 slices of cooked crisp bacon

1 red onion sliced thin

6 leaves of lettuce

1/4 teaspoon salt


In a bowl, combine beef, jalapeño peppers, blue cheese, onion, garlic, soy sauce, salt & pepper to taste.

Mix well, and form into 6 patties.

Grill patties for 7 minutes on each side or until springy/spongy in the middle.

Place slice of cheese on top of each patty, cover grill, and grill until cheese melts.

Combine mayo with cumin & chili powder. Spread equally on bottom of each bun. Top with BBQ sauce, lettuce, avocado, tomato slices, bacon and red onion. Sprinkle with a little sea salt. Serve while hot! Or should I say “hotter?” Buon Appetito! Ciao! Grazia Y’all!
