Hyvee Culinary Expert TipChile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes. When working with hot peppers, wear protective gloves.
To cook on stovetop, heat a large nonstick skillet or grill pan over medium heat. Place patties in skillet; cook for 10 to 12 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center of patties registers 160 degrees, turning patties over occasionally and topping with remaining 1/4 cup cheese during the last 3 minutes of cooking. (Note: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed ground beef. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.)
To grill, preheat a charcoal or gas grill for direct cooking over medium heat (350 degrees). Place patties on grill rack; close grill lid. Grill for 8 to 10 minutes* over ash-covered coals or 7 to 9 minutes in a preheated gas grill, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center of patties registers 160 degrees, turning patties over occasionally and topping with remaining 1/4 cup cheese during the last 3 minutes of grilling. (Note: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed ground beef. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.)
To serve, place burgers on tortillas or in buns; season to taste with salt and pepper. Top with desired toppings.
