Cheesy Jalapeno Burgers & Sweet Potato Fries

It's recipe time!! I actually had a little bit of a break this weekend from work & coaching basketball (thank you MLK!) to give my husband a break from the fabulous meals he's been cooking and to have dinner ready for him when he gets home from work! I spent some time on Pinterest to find some recipes, and this is one I made last night. It was quick, easy, and delicious! J even took the two extras I had made to work today for lunch (that must means he approved ☺).

~1 lb ground beef chuck
small can diced jalapenos
1/2 container of chive & onion cream cheese
pepper jack cheese
kaiser rolls
salt & pepper
anything else you like on your burger (lettuce, tomato, onion, ketchup/mustard, etc...)

2 sweet potatoes
olive oil
seasonings (I used paprika, cumin, and chili powder)

Sweet Potato Fries Directions

These healthy version of fries are super simple to make. Preheat oven to 400*. Slice sweet potato into circles or wedges (either way works). Toss in bowl and mix with olive oil and seasonings. Throw onto a pan and bake for 15-20 minutes. That's it!

Cheesy Jalapeno Burgers Directions

1. Combine meat, jalapenos, and cream cheese into bowl. You can either mix the ingredients by kneading them together with your hands, or I used my KitchenAid Mixer on low (mostly because I haven't had a chance to use it yet and I was excited to!).

2. Form the meat mixture into patties (mine made 4 decent sized ones- you could probably get 6 out if it if you wanted to).

3. Toss them on the George Foreman grill (or outside grill or skillet on the stove- I used my GF today) for 4-5 minutes. Add pepperjack cheese and let melt and then remove from grill. Place them onto toasted kaiser rolls with whatever burger toppings you love, and enjoy! Yummmmmy!!

I promise it tasted better than it looks :)

with faith, love, & coffee,
