Thanks to Sherry Martin, we've got a new name for these mouthwatering burgers. Say hello to the Test Kitchen's Black Jack Burgers! Now, fire up that grill and enjoy.

What You'll Need

  • 2 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 envelope (from a 2.4-ounce box) dry onion soup mix
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup chili sauce
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green bell pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 8 slices pepper Jack cheese

What to Do

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients except cheese; mix well. Divide mixture into 8 equal patties.
  3. Grill patties 8 to 12 minutes for medium, or until desired doneness beyond that, turning them halfway through grilling. Place a slice of cheese on each burger and cook 1 to 2 additional minutes, or until cheese is melted.

- "The Southwest-Satisfaction Grill Burger" - Having been born & raised 20 miles Southeast of San Diego, my whole family loves spicy foods. Instead of, say, Heinz chili sauce, I used a mixture of Sriracha & Organicville Chili Sauce, a very tasty unique blend that works well for shrimp cocktails too. Also, I used beef broth instead of water. With those changes, we all said, with a BIG SMILE, "Ooooh, it's Sooooo Good!" :-) Thanks for the great idea for making a super-burger!

Just call it The Fab Jack Burger Yumm Yumm

Call it Jack-in-a-bun I think the onion sop mix would make it too salty, and I would decrease the amount, but that's just my taste.
