  1. In a small bowl, mix together cream cheese, diced jalapeños, and crumbled bacon.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together ground beef, spices, bread crumbs, and eggs.
  3. Shape into eight thin patties.
  4. Spoon jalapeño mixture onto center of four patties; top with remaining patties and press edges firmly to seal.
  5. Preheat your grill to a medium high heat and cook burgers until no longer pink inside and the juices run clear, flipping occasionally to ensure both sides cook evenly.
