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!


Units Scale

2 Jalapenos, chopped (Seed them if you don’t want them too 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

Fresh roasted green chiles if desired

1 to 1 1/2 lbs of ground meat such as beef, turkey or chicken

I use brioche buns but this is your choice.


Using an immersion blender, cream the cream cheese until light and fluffy.

Stir in rest of ingredients and set aside until ready to use.

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.

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.

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!


This cream cheese spread is also great on grilled chicken breasts or a bagel.
