Have you ever had crackers topped with jalapeno jelly and cream cheese? They inspired today’s burger…
The Jalapeno Burger with Cream Cheese has some heat on it, but its cooled down with smooth cream cheese.
The cheese is so creamy that you don’t even need to put it on the grill. You can use spreadable cream cheese or just set a slice or two of it on the cooked burger and it’ll become gooey and spreadable.
The Jalapeno Burger with Cream Cheese starts off with some jalapeno jelly on the bottom of the bun. Put it on nice and thick. This adds some spice and a nice texture to the burger.
Then top with the cream cheese and layer your bacon on that. For some extra heat add some jalapenos to the top of the burger. This combination is surprisingly awesome. It’s one of my favorite burgers that I’ve made so far.

Grill your burgers about 4min on the first side.
Flip burgers & cook until you reach the correct temp (140F for medium), usually about 2 to 4 minutes.
