  1. •Preheat a grill to high heat.
  2. •When the grill is ready, roast the jalapeno peppers until blackened on all sides.
  3. •Place the peppers in a plastic bag to sweat and loosen the blackened skin.
  4. •Rub the skin off the peppers (use disposable latex gloves), then seed and dice (leaving seeds will increase the "heat" alot).

  6. •Divide meat mixture into 8 balls and flatten into patties.

  8. •Butter the hamburger buns and either place on grill or warm in oven.
  9. •Remove hamburger buns and dress with lettuce, sliced tomato and sliced onion.
  10. •Top each burger just before removing from grill with a slice of pepperjack cheese allowing the cheese to melt slightly.
  11. •Remove each of the burgers from the grill and place on buns.
