Spicy Red Pepper Burgers

BBQ & Grilling, Beef

  • Serves 4.


  • 3/4 lb. ground beef
  • 1/3 cup unseasoned breadcrumbs
  • 2 Tablespoons diced green chilies
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 red bell pepper, roasted, peeled, seeded
  • 4 hamburger buns, lightly toasted
  • 4 slices sharp cheddar cheese
  • Mayonnaise or favorite dressing


Combine ground beef, breadcrumbs, green chilies, salt, and pepper; mix well. With hands dampened, shape into four patties.

Cut bell pepper in half; seed and core. Roast red pepper over hot grill, skin side down, until skin is blackened. Put in small paper bag or wrap in paper towels until cool; peel off skin and cut into strips.

Place burgers over prepared coals on the hottest area of an oiled grill for 1 minute on each side to brown. Move burgers to outside of the grill and continue to cook for another 3-4 minutes on each side. When the burgers are nearly done, toast the buns.

Spread buns with roasted red pepper strips and mayonnaise, then add burgers and cheddar cheese.
