Jalapeno Cheddar Burger

This monster of a burger is stuffed with jalapenos and cheddar and is then topped with caramelized onions, vine ripe tomatoes, avocado, romaine lettuce, and pepper jack…double cheese, I know. All of this deliciousness is sandwiched between a brioche bun covered in spicy brown mustard and a homemade chipotle mayo. Click the image or “continue reading” to see the recipe!
