A copycat recipe of a fast food favorite: the Monterey Melt. It’s a juicy burger piled high with cheese, grilled peppers and onions and jalapeno ranch.
*These make big half-pound burgers. If you want a lighter burger or to stretch the recipe to feed more people, using only one patty per burger will yield 8 quarter-pound burgers.
**The actual Monterey Melt uses American and Monterey Jack cheese. Instead of Pepper Jack, feel free to use two slices each on the burgers for more authenticity.
