Ingredients:

For the Southwest Sauce

For the Cheeseburger

For Garnish

Directions:

For the Southwest Sauce

  1. Combine Greek yogurt, lime juice, chili powder, cumin and salt in a small bowl.
  2. Stir until thoroughly combined. Set aside.

For the Cheeseburger Filling

  1. Combine cream cheese, shredded cheddar, bacon and jalapeños in a medium bowl and stir to combine.
  2. Set aside.

For the Cheeseburger Patties

  1.  Combine ground beef, chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper in a bowl and use hands to mix until the seasonings are evenly distributed.
  2. Divide beef mixture into 8 even portions. Shape 1 portion into a burger patty and spread approximately 1 heaping tablespoon of filling in the center of the patty.
  3. Top filling with a second patty and carefully seal the edges around the filling, then repeat with remaining burger mixture and filling.

For the Grilling

  1. Preheat a grill or grill pan to high heat.
  2. Place patties on the grill and cook for 8 minutes on the first side. Flip burgers to second side and cook for 4 minutes more.
  3. Top each burger with a slice of pepper jack cheese. Cover the grill or grill pan and cook for 4 additional minutes, until cheese is melted and burgers are cooked to medium rare (or desired doneness).
  4. Remove from grill and allow burger patties to rest for 5 minutes. Spread Southwest sauce on the inside of each bun.
  5. Top each bun with a burger patty and additional garnishes as desired.
