Get ready for summer with this spicy cheeseburger made with pickled jalapeños, pepper jack cheese, tomato and lettuce.
Divide the ground beef into 4 equal portions and flatten into patties. Lay out on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and season on both sides with the salt, pepper and garlic powder.
Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat then add 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and heat through. Add two of the patties to the pan and cook until the burgers are golden brown and slightly charred, about 3 minutes.
Flip the burgers then top each with a slice of cheese and cook for an additional 4 minutes for medium-rare. Remove to a plate and cover then repeat with the remaining oil and burger patties.
To assemble the burgers, place a piece of lettuce on each bottom bun, top with a cooked burger patty, a slice of tomato and sliced jalapeños.
