For the jalapeno poppers

For the burgers

Heat a grill for medium-high, two-zone cooking. Halve and seed the jalapenos. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, shredded cheddar, garlic, worcestershire and 1 teaspoon Salt Pepper + Three Chiles. Stuff this cream cheese filling into the cavity of each jalapeno half. Be generous, the filling will cook down a bit in the grill. Wrap each jalapeno in a piece of uncooked bacon. Arrange the jalapeno poppers on a foil lined baking sheet and season on all sides with the remaining teaspoon of Salt Pepper + Three Chiles. 

 

Cook the poppers over indirect heat until the bacon is crispy, about 20 minutes. 

 

Season the ground beef with Salt Pepper + Three Chiles and divide the beef into 4 patties (about 5 ½ ounces each). Press them down in the center so they don’t cone-up on the grill. Grill over direct heat for 4 – 5 minutes per side. Melt a slice of cheddar on each burger as it finishes cooking. Toast the buns. 

 

Build each burger by topping each bun with lettuce, red onion, a burger patty and two jalapeno poppers each.
