Jalapeno Popper Burgers
2 pounds lean ground beef
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
3 to 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 teaspoon ancho chili powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried minced onion
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced (or more)
Mix meat, Worcestershire sauce and seasonings. Shape the mixture into 12 thin patties, each about 4 inches in diameter.
Mix the cream cheese, chili powder, cumin, dried onion and minced jalapeno.
Top each of 6 patties with the cheese mixture, spreading to within 1/2 inch of the edge. (If the mixture is difficult to spread, try heating it in the microwave for about 15 seconds first.)
Cover each patty with one of the remaining patties, sealing the edges firmly.
Broil or grill the patties 4 inches from the heat, turning once, until the desired doneness is reached and cheese is melted, about 10 to 15 minutes.
