Place beef patty on grill & enjoy a tasty Tex-Mex burger in no time

Figuring out what to eat for dinner is a question we all struggle with from time to time. If you're a fan of the savory, melty flavors of a cheeseburger and also love tacos, you'll love this recipe below that combines both of these tasty meals into one dinner!
It might seem decadent to eat a double cheeseburger, but the patties only weigh a quarter pound each. You're really not eating that much meat when you think about it, but you get the benefit of each patty being perfectly grilled on the outside. If you really want to spice up these burgers, add some chopped jalapeños to the mix. These burgers are spicy enough between the salsa and the pepper jack cheese, but extra peppers will really kick things up a notch!
