Sheilla's 911 Burgers

Around this house we love Spicy, Southwestern, Mexican style dinners, our love for those flavors inspired this new Burger.  Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

Sheilla's 911 Burgers

2 lbs. 80% grass fed ground beef (mine was about 2 1/4 this time)
4 large Jalapeno Peppers
1 TBSP onion powder
1 TBSP garlic granules
2 TBSP coconut aminos
1 tsp sea salt (or more if you like)
1/2 tsp hot pepper sauce
1/2 tsp. chipotle pepper powder
1/4 tsp ground black pepper

Preheat your grill on high (I used a gas grill).  When it's good and hot place your peppers on the grill over high heat and blacken them on all sides.  Remove from the grill when done, using a fork and sharp knife, cut off the stem.  Then slice in half length wise and remove the middle and about 1/2 seeds from the Jalapeno for a more mild burger, then chop loosely.  Add to a food processor and process for a few seconds to finely chop them.  Set aside.

Then in a large bowl, combine the meat, all the spices and the peppers.  Mix well with your hands being sure everything gets well incorporated into the mixture (you may want to wear gloves due to the peppers).  Divide and roll into 6 good size balls, then flatten and grill your burgers over med-high heat (depending on your grill, mine isn't so hot anymore so I had it on high the whole time).  Serve with your choice of garnish, I tried it with guacamole, but my favorite was plain with lettuce leaves.  I think some fresh tomato slices and maybe some onion might be good, just experiment to find what you prefer.  
Hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
