This Juicy Lucy takes cheese-stuffed burgers to an incredible new level.
It's the height of grilling season (not to mention the 4th of July!), so right about now we're all in search of a dang good burger recipe.
A good ol' cheeseburger can get a little boring, and this is where these Mexican Juicy Lucy Burgers come into play. Typically, Juicy Lucy burgers are stuffed with American cheese and that's the end of the story.
But I really wanted to amp up the flavors and create a killer summer burger that is so good it should be made all year.
So I swapped out the American for sharp cheddar, then added some chorizo into the beef, along with a little Old El Paso Taco seasoning, and a little bacon on top too ... you know, for good measure.
So let's do this!
Grab your ingredients.
Mix together the beef, chorizo, and taco seasoning until just combined.
Form the meat in six equal patties.
Place a cube of cheddar in the middle of each patty.
Use your hands to enclose the meat around the cheese so you can no longer see the cheese.
Place the patties on the grill and cook them 5-8 minutes per side. During the last minute of cooking add the slice of pepper jack cheese.
Remove the burgers from the grill and place on buns. Top with bacon.
Add some jalapenos.
Place the top bun onto the burger and you’re done! Just wait till you get to the middle...
Ooey, gooey cheese heaven!
