This is a cautionary tale though. Beware the panfrying peppers.  Have you ever wondered how anyone ever came up with the idea for pepper spray?  I’m pretty sure it happened in a tiny kitchen with a small, hot frying pan, a few strong jalapeno peppers, and a pair of cooks who couldn’t stop coughing for an hour.  Maybe we’re sadistic, but the burgers were totally worth the pain. Save yourself though, and open a window 🙂

A burger for when you need one.

Total Time
20 mins
Servings: 2
  • ½ lb ground beef
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 jalapeno pepper
  • 1 small onion
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 lettuce leaves
  • 2 hamburger buns
  1. Put ground beef in a mixing bowl and add the garlic powder, italian seasoning, and salt and pepper. Mix it up with your hands and shape into 2 patties. Set aside.

  2. Chop up the jalapenos and onions into small strips. Remove the jalapeno seeds if you aren't into a little heat.

  3. In a small pan, heat the olive oil on medium. Toss the onions and jalapeno strips in and sauté. Keep these cooking until the edges start to burn just a little. This gives the jalapenos a nice crunch.

  4. Heat a large grill pan over medium high heat. Add the patties to cook. Flip after 5 minutes, then finish cooking until cooked through to your desired pink-ness

  5. Build your burgers and enjoy!
