Southern Living


1 (7.5-ounce) jar roasted red bell peppers, drained
1 tablespoon sugar
1 1/4 teaspoons salt, divided
1 1/2 pounds Ground BEEF
1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 to 2 jalapeño peppers, minced, or 2 tablespoons chopped green chiles
4 hamburger buns
Toppings: grilled purple onion slices, jalapeño pepper slices


Process bell peppers, sugar, and 1 teaspoon salt in a blender, stopping once to scrape down sides. Pour into a small saucepan, and cook over medium heat 4 minutes or until thickened.

Combine ground beef and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt; shape into 8 thin patties.

Combine cream cheese and jalapeño pepper; divide evenly in center of 4 patties. (Do not spread to edges.) Top with remaining patties; press edges to seal.

Grill, covered with grill lid, over medium-high heat (350° to 400°) 4 to 5 minutes on each side or until done. Serve on buns with bell pepper ketchup and desired toppings.
