Jalapeño Bacon Ranch Cheeseburgers

 I just love a great cookout!  When the weather is nice, I like to spend as much time outdoors as possible.  That goes for our meals as well.  Not only is it nice to enjoy the weather while eating your meal, but I find that with 4 children, if we eat outside there is always less mess for me to clean up.  I’m never too worried about crumbs dropping onto the ground outside like I am in the kitchen! :)  Nothing says summer more than a great meal cooked on the grill.  After a long day in the garden or playing with my kiddos, an iced cold drink and a juicy cheeseburger are the perfect way to relax and enjoy time with family.

Ingredients for Jalapeño Bacon Ranch Cheeseburgers

When I think of the perfect cheeseburger, I think of a burger that’s moist, flavorful and one that has a lot of creamy cheese on it!  I was really excited when I found some great flavored cheeses on my recent trip to the grocery store.  I really love foods that have a different flavor and even a little kick to them, so I couldn’t wait to try the Kraft Velveeta Jalapeño Slices and the Kraft Velveeta Queso Blanco Shreds in creating a new spin on our family’s classic cheeseburger.

Combine Ingredients for the Jalapeño Bacon Ranch Cheeseburgers

These Jalapeño Bacon Ranch Cheeseburgers were the first burgers I made this season and boy were they good!  The creamy Queso Blanco cheese is mixed into seasoned fresh ground beef along with chopped jalapeño peppers, grated onion, Kraft Ranch Dressing for a little zing , and plain bread crumbs to give you a moist, tender, flavor filled burger.  Add that to a nice hearty bun and top it with a slice of jalapeño cheese, lettuce, tomato, crispy bacon, ketchup and Kraft Mayo and you’ve got a delicious cheeseburger that has now become one of our family’s new favorites!

Jalapeño Bacon Ranch Cheeseburgers Ready for the Grill!

Don’t have your grill out yet?  No worries!  These cheeseburgers cook just as nice on an indoor grill or even in the broiler!  These cheeseburgers can be assembled ahead of time and even stored in the refrigerator until it’s grilling time.  How convenient is that?!  Sometimes I even make a bunch of burgers on the weekends so we have them available during the busy work week for a quick, but yummy dinner.

    Oh man!!
    Burgers are right up my alley…..hubby too! LOVE THEM!!! 😀
    I’m lucky that I get to grill year round, yeah for me!
    Living in the desert does have some advantages.
    This recipe sounds easy enough and your burger looks deeelish!
    Your picture of your burger is great Shannon, pictures are pretty much the deal maker for me. If the food looks like you can take a bite right from my computer screen, then it’s a hit for me.
    This is another recipe that I will be putting in my keeper file, thanks!

      Thanks Dalila! Grilling outside all year sounds wonderful. I do have to use my indoor one for about half of the year, but it just makes it a little more exciting when the grill does come out after a long winter. I hope you enjoy these:)
