Spicy Jalapeno-Cheddar Burgers

Serves 4-6


1 jar of Spicy Calabrian Sauce
2 lbs Ground beef
4 oz cheddar cheese, grated
2 jalapeno peppers, chopped fine
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
Romaine lettuce
Whole wheat Challah rolls
EV olive oil


Drizzle about 1 Tbsp EV olive oil into a large skillet. Over medium heat, saut√© the chopped jalapenos until softened. Set aside to cool. 

Combine the ground meat with the cheddar, cooled jalapenos, a pinch of sea salt, and 4 tbsp of Spicy Calabrian Sauce. Form into patties. Sprinkle some fresh black pepper on each side.

In the same skillet, drizzle about 2 Tbsp EV olive oil, and when hot, place your patties and grill until brown. About 5 min each side for medium rare. If you like them extra crispy, turn them a couple of times. You'll notice the cheese will melt and become crispy.

While your burgers rest for about 5 min, toast (optional) the inner side of the rolls before serving. Spread some spicy Tomato Nduja on the bun under crispy romaine lettuce, and top the burger off with a generous dollop of Spicy Calabrian Sauce. 

Pair with crispy steak fries and enjoy!

The sauce mixed into the burger patties makes them extra moist, extra juicy, and very flavorful!
