  • 1 pound fresh ground chuck
  • salt & pepper
  • 2 jalapenos (sliced into rounds)
  • ½ cup blue cheese (or as desired)
  • 3 leaves green leaf lettuce
  • 3 brioche buns


  • 1 tablespoon Franks Red Hot Sauce
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 dash fresh ground pepper


  • Equally divide ground beef into three separate portions and press into patties without overworking the meat.
  • Cook sliced jalapenos until slightly charred but still crisp, roughly 2 minutes, flipping occasionally. (this can be done on the grill with a vegetable basket, or in a skillet on the stove)
  • Liberally sprinkle each side of the patties with salt and pepper and place on the grill over the hottest part of the coals, or in a skillet on the stove set over medium-high heat. Let cook until a brown crust forms, then flip the patty and continue cooking until it reaches your desired level of doneness. Blue cheese can be sprinkled on the patty once it has been flipped.
  • While burgers finish cooking lightly toast the interior of the hamburger buns.
  • Assemble burger by placing green leaf lettuce on the bottom bun, top with burger patty, blue cheese, grilled jalapenos, and sauce.


  • Mix together hot sauce, balsamic vinegar, and fresh ground pepper.
