I love burgers. Or anything between two pieces of bread for that matter. So, when I saw the theme for this round fo the Recipe Swap as being sandwiches/burgers, I was super excited. And even moreso when I received my recipe for Jalapeno PepperJack Burgers from Nichole of The Coohaholic Wife. I not so secretly kind of love her, and her food. I couldn’t have been paired with a more perfect recipe. Go check out her blog and you’ll fall in love too. Great recipes!
Hi, have you met me? I love jalapenos, and spicy food. Pair that with a burger and I’m in heaven!
