Update Servings
  • 1 pound ground round
  • 1/4 cup prepared thick-and-chunky salsa
  • 4 frozen cream cheese or Cheddar cheese-stuffed jalapeno peppers
  • 1/4 cup prepared salsa con queso
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh plum tomato
  • 2 tablespoons sliced pitted ripe olives
  • Prepared thick-and-chunky salsa
  • Combine ground beef and 1/4 cup salsa in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Lightly shape into four thin patties. Place one stuffed pepper in center of each patty; wrap beef around pepper to enclose, sealing seams and forming ball. Flatten balls into patties about 4 to 5 inches across and 1 inch thick.
  • Place patties on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 15 to 16 minutes, until instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160°F, turning occasionally.
  • Spread 1 tablespoon salsa con queso evenly over top of each burger. Sprinkle evenly with tomato and olives. Serve with salsa, as desired.

Cook's Tip: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed ground beef. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.

Cook's Tip: Four slices (3/4 ounce each) Mexican-style process cheese slices may be substituted for salsa con queso; place on top of patties 1 minute before patties are done, to allow cheese to melt. Popper burgers may also be served in hamburger buns for a hand held sandwich.
