Jalapeño Popper Burgers

Store bought or restaurant jalapeño poppers are usually filled with cream cheese, breaded and fried, whereas most homemade versions are wrapped in bacon and filled with jack cheese. I tried to combine both versions into this tasty jalapeño popper burger. The pepper jack cheese adds some extra kick to the jalapeño already inside the burger patty, and the pickled jalapeños on top add some bright acidity to balance all the cream cheese and savory bacon.
