First things first, preheat a charcoal or gas grill according to our Beer-Can Cheeseburgers recipe. Form meat into a ball. Tightly wrap a can with foil. Press can into the meat, forming a cup. Press meat up side of can if necessary.
By forming burger meat around a beer can, you can make an ooey-gooey cheese-and-pepper-stuffed burger for Game Day. Follow along with these three easy steps.
Wrap two slices of uncooked bacon around the burger cup; skewer with two toothpicks. Remove the can.
Fill burger cups with cheese mixture and top with shredded Hatch pepper cheese and remaining chiles.
