My husband was the inspiration behind these burgers. It used to be one of his favorites at Buffalo Wild Wings.  And  I have to confess, I really didn’t think I would be all that crazy about it.  But nachos and burgers together; why not? I had to give it a try.  And the verdict…this burger is so good it makes me want to scream! Seriously, it’s sooo delicious!! That melty pepper jack cheese?  And jalapeños??  YESSSSS. By making it at home, you can take it to a whole new level. The key is to keep the burger itself simple, and then top off that patty with all your favorite nacho fixin’s like nacho cheese, salsa, jalapeños, and of course, nachos.  It’s not totally a copy cat, because this burger is all about the custom build. And that’s where you come in.  Ohhhhh yeahhhh! 

Screamin' Nacho Burgers

Easy Nacho Burgers are topped with melty pepper jack cheese, crispy bacon, and jalapeños! All the nacho flavors you love, but in a juicy burger


  • 1 pound ground beef I used lean
  • 1 teaspoon steak seasoning
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • 4 slice pepper jack cheese
  • 4-6 slices bacon cooked
  • 1/2 cup sliced jalapeños see note
  • 1 cup nacho cheese sauce homemade or your favorite
  • 1 cup salsa homemade or your favorite
  • 4 tablespoons mayochup
  • optional: lettuce, sliced onions


  1. Combine ground beef with steak seasoning and then form the beef into four equal-sized patties.

  2. In a cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Add burgers and cook 5 minutes, then flip and cook another 5 minutes. Turn heat to low, cover with a lid and cook for 10 to 15 minutes. Top with Pepper Jack cheese.  Remove from heat and cover just until cheese has melted. 

  3. Toast buns and build burgers by layering the bottom bun with some melted nacho cheese, and nachos.  Next place the cheeseburger on top of the nachos, then top with bacon, jalapenos; salsa, nacho cheese and mayochup. (Add lettuce and onions if desired)  Devour and enjoy!
