Carls Jr Jalepeno Burger

Rumor has it that this burger was created after some managers at Carls Jr saw people putting jalapeno peppers from the salad bar on their burgers. Here is a quick and easy way to make these burgers at home on your George Forman Grill. The jalapeno burgers consist of:


  • All beef patty
  • jalapeno peppers
  • pepper jack cheese
  • sliced onion
  • tomato
  • lettuce
  • Santa Fe sauce
  • sesame seed bun


  1. Mix a pinch of taco seasoning and a couple of teaspoons of salsa into 1/4 lb of ground beef.
  2. Form into a patty and cook on George Foreman Grill until done.
  3. Add pepper jack cheese. Use wooden spoon in the back on the grill so cheese won't stick.
  4. Make Santa Fe sauce by adding a small about of salsa to mayonnaise.
  5. Build your burger.  Refer to the picture above.
(I'm not crazy about raw onions so I also grill them)
