Smoky Bacon-Jalepeno Burgers

Hubs has a thing for hamburgers.  It's practically the only thing he orders out.  This summer, I'm trying to come up with some new burgers to make them less boring more fun for me to eat a little more often.  Here's one that I pulled together this week (Hubber has given his seal of approval).  It simple, fun and a little spicy.  Like all things in life should be ;)

Smoky Bacon Jalapeno Burgers

1 pound ground meat
1/4 cup smoked chipotle sauce (I used Bronco Bob's Smoked Bacon Chipotle sauce - it's my fav...shout out to my brother for buying us some to try)
1/2 red onion, diced
Montreal Steak Seasoning

4 oz pepper jack cheese (I like to grate it - it adds to the gooey melty awesomeness)
1 slice bacon per sandwich, cooked
Pickled jalapenos, to taste (I diced some and sprinkled them on - we only wanted a hint of heat)
Mayo, to taste
Bread or bun of choice (I used toasted bread because I like the crunchy texture with this burger.  Texas toast would be even better)

1 - Mix ground meat, chipotle sauce and diced red onion. by hand until well blended
2 - Patty into burgers (I made 3 fairly monstrous burgers); Sprinkle the tops of the patties with Montreal Steak Seasoning
3 - Grill the burgers to your liking
4 - To assemble, spread 1 piece of bread/bun with mayo and top with pepper jack cheese, bacon and jalapenos
5 - Add the grilled burger and top piece of bread/bun

The sweet, smokiness of the sauce pairs so nice with jalapenos and bacon.  Mmmmmm bacon :)
