Jalapeno Cheddar Burgers with Avocado and Bacon

 Sunny days call for grilled burgers - cheesy jalapeno stuffed burgers, to be exact. These juicy burgers pair perfectly with creamy avocado and crispy bacon. Serve with fresh fruit salad or sweet potato fries and you have a delicious spring meal!

1. Heat olive oil in small skillet over medium heat. Add shallot, garlic and jalapeno and saute for 2 minutes. Remove pan from heat and allow to cool slightly. 


2. Place cream cheese and cheddar in a mixing bowl and add the cooked veggies; stir to combine. 


3. Shape the ground beef into 8 rounds. Scoop the cream cheese mixture onto 4 of the rounds and top with the remaining beef (to form 4 burgers). Season with salt and pepper on both sides. 



4. Preheat grill to medium-high. Cook the burgers for 4-5 minutes per side, or until cooked through. 


5. Place lettuce on the bottom half of each bun and top with a burger, avocado, bacon and remaining bun halves. Serve.
