 Ingredients List

  • 1 piece white sandwich bread, crust removed and cut into 1/4-inch pieces
  • 2-1/2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon ancho chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1.5 lb 80-85% lean ground beef
  • 1 jalapeƱo pepper, seeded and minced (see note)
  • 2 scallions, dark and light green parts, thinly sliced
  • 2/3 cup grated Monterey Jack or Mexican blend cheese, plus more for topping the burgers, if desired
  • 8 slider buns
  • Vegetable oil, for brushing the buns
  • 1 batch Roasted Tomato Peach Jam, ketchup or salsa, for serving (optional)
  • Arugula, for serving (optional)


In a large bowl, combine the bread, milk, salt, pepper, cumin, coriander, chili powder, smoked paprika, garlic, and Worcestershire sauce. Using a fork, mash into a paste.
Add the ground beef, jalapeno, scallions, and cheese. Using your hands, mix until well combined. Shape the beef mixture into 8 patties slightly wider than the diameter of the buns. Form a slight depression in the center of each patty to prevent the burgers from puffing up on the grill. Refrigerate until ready to cook.
Preheat the grill to medium-high heat and oil the grates. Brush the cut sides of the buns lightly with oil and set aside.
Grill the burgers, covered, until nicely browned on the first side, about 3 minutes. Flip burgers and add cheese (if desired); continue cooking for about 2 minutes more for medium rare. Remove the patties from the grill and let rest on a plate. Add the buns to the grill, oiled side down, and grill for about 1 minute, or until lightly toasted with grill marks. Remove from the grill. Mound the arugula (if using) on the bottom halves of the buns. Top each bottom half with a patty, followed by a generous amount of the Roasted Tomato Peach Jam (or ketchup or salsa) and the upper half of the bun. Serve hot.
