Everyone loved this, and knowing this is your recipe, I am not a bit surprised as I can count on you for that. I served this with fries and it made a great quick weeknight meal (Wednesday is a busy evening for us). Once again thanks! This goes in my keeper file.

I cut up my jalapenos into tiny pieces and added it into the meat before cooking. We really enjoyed them and plan to have them every once in awhile. These were a really nice change of pace for us and it was fun to stray from our typical burgers.
