Recently, we had made the most delightful serrano pepper jelly and started to look for ways to use it. A friend of ours said she thought it would taste great on a burger. So here we are trying it on burger! To keep in theme of the pepper, we whipped up some stuffed poblanos to top the burger with.
Quite frankly, any stuffed pepper is going to work with this burger idea. So, if you have a favorite stuffed pepper recipe you prefer, go for it! The main point is that you want a savory spicy bite to top your burger with. As a matter of fact, I am going to try this again, with cream cheese stuffed jalapeno poppers in the near future. THIS burger is topped with a poblano that is stuffed with onion, poblano pepper, cheese and cornmeal to bind and create a polenta type consistency to mimic the corn masa in a tamale a bit.
You can use your favorite store bought pepper jelly, or make your own! Need a recipe? Check out mine ~ Serrano Pepper Jelly If your not the type to enjoy sweeter burgers and prefer to stay savory, go ahead and try this burger without the pepper jelly.
