Instructions

In a large bowl combine ground meats, 4-tablespoons cilantro, onion, 2-tablespoons canned chilies, jalapeno, 1-teaspoon taco seasoning, chipotle pepper, lime zest and juice. Mix well and set aside. In a smaller bowl combine cream cheese, 2-tablespoons cilantro, 1-teaspoon taco seasoning and 2-tablespoons canned chilies. Mix well and set aside. Divide the burger mix into 8 or 12 equal portions and form into patties. Place approximately 2-tablespoons of the cream cheese mixture in the center of a patty and top with another patty to make the stuffed burgers. Seal the edges well. Grill over medium heat/low flame to desired doneness. Alternatively, burgers may be broiled. Remove the burgers from the grill and let rest a few minutes before serving on your favorite toasted buns or sourdough bread.

Notes

If you prefer, substitute lean ground beef for either the buffalo or pork--or for both.
