The classic American cheeseburger is taken to new heights with this Tex-Mex version that includes jalapeño-laced Monterey Jack cheese. Mixing the cheese right in to the burger is the secret to keeping the burgers moist even when cooked through. The burgers do have a tendency to stick to the grill so be sure to oil the grate before cooking. This recipe was adapted from the king of the grill, Steven Raichlen. Beer Recommendations: The heat from the peppers and the richness of the cheese calls for a solid ESB with a hoppy aroma and slightly sweet & citrusy tang like Young’s Special London Ale. If you are searching for a beverage that is not quite so hoppy try a dark lager like Negra Modello for a smooth finish that is sure to please all.
