• 2 lb ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, roughly chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2-3 seeded and cored jalapeno peppers
  • 1/4 cup hot sauce
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 sea salt


  • guacamole
  • salsa
  • hot sauce


  • mixed salad greens


Place onion, garlic, and jalapeno in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until finely chopped.

In a large bowl, mix peppers, onion, garlic and 1/4 cup hot sauce. Add ground beef and use your hands to mix it thoroughly without compacting the beef too much. Form the meat into 6-8 patties.

Refrigerate until ready to grill.

Preheat grill to medium high.

Place a sheet of heavy duty aluminum foil on the grill grate.

Place patties on the foil and grill for approximately 5 minutes on each side or until cooked to your desired degree of doneness.

To serve, place a generous amount of salad greens on your plate. Top with a burger, then garnish with guacamole, salsa, and hot sauce.
