My Manservant sure does love dinner but there aren’t many things that make him as excited as the word, “chile”. This man loves his chile and in every form. Be it chile chili or chile topped enchiladas or burritos, eggs or chili cheese burgers. Oh yeah-he loves chili on his hot dogs, too. Chile is one way to my man’s heart and I’m still trying to figure out the others, which just might include the word chocolate!

Today’s Sunday Supper is all about Father’s Day menu ideas. I’ve not had to plan any for the last few years, so this year it’s all about making Manservant happy. Actually I think he is very happy because he’s home and he probably would be thrilled if I served him McDonald’s. Truth is that often when he’s travelling he stops in at the local Mickey D’s. Never eats it at home but he thinks of it as comfort food when he’s away!

It isn’t often I prepare beef since I gave it up long ago. However when I crave burgers-usually of the ground chicken variety-I always buy some beef for my man. He’s happy and so are the dogs because I always make sure they get their beef in the form of baby burgers. They love it when I fire up the grill.

Since chile is always a major component of Manservant’s favorite foods I decided it was high time to serve him a chile burger. We used to love going downtown to our favorite dive where they make the best jalapeno cheese burger. The JCB, they call it. Though this could not possibly be as good as theirs, it still is pretty good. Well, truthfully is is killer, unless you are not a fan of jalapenos and cream cheese and onions. Call me crazy but these just make a burger so much better. I also threw some chilies into the meat and added extra chile slices on the burger. Feel free to throw more chili on top-I know Manservant would have had I made it!

Happy Father’s Day to all the great dad’s out there!

Jalapeno Cream Cheese Burger

These Jalapeno Cream Cheese Burgers are sure to please anyone. Luscious cream cheese, mixed with spicy jalapenos and onions is an easy way to dress up any burger!
prep time: 15 MINScook time: 15 MINStotal time: 30 mins


  • 2 Jalapenos, chopped (Seed them if you don’t want them to spicy.)
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1/4 c minced onion
  • 1 T mayonnaise
  • 1/2 t garlic powder
  • 1/4 t salt or to taste


  1. Using an immersion blender, cream the cream cheese until light and fluffy.
  2. Stir in rest of ingredients and set aside until ready to use.
  3. Prepare your burgers as you wish. Season them generously with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Grill to desired temperature. Feel free to throw in some extra chilies with the meat. Sometimes I also grate some jalapeno cheese and hide it in the middle.
  4. I always butter and toast my buns on the grill. Watch carefully so they don’t burn. When burgers are just about cooked, place a heaping tablespoon of jalapeno cream cheese on top of burger. Close grill and let heat briefly, then top with bun.
  5. When ready to serve you may serve these with extra chile strips, some pickles, some chili and extra onion. We forego the ketchup and mustard, but that is up to you!

    We're grilling burgers today for the three dads in our family. I know your husband must be thrilled to be home and to eat these gorgeous burgers! We ate at the McDonald's in Shanghai and it was so much better than here at home. Maybe we were just really hungry, but it was delicious. Enjoy your day – thanks for the great recipe!

    Your jalapeño cream cheese topping does look tasty, Abbe. Looks like your husband will get his fill of hot chiles, today. The chili with eggs makes me think of the Mexican variations my dad loved =)

    Other than green chile, the toppings for my burgers can get rather boring. Your jalapeno cream would definitely change that!! Great looking burgers!
