Burger King Jalapeno & Cheddar BK Stuffed Steakhouse

Children have such innocent minds, and those minds ask silly, but innocent questions, like:

Does chocolate milk come from a brown cow?

Why is the word “dictionary” in the dictionary?

Does daddy like to drive a car with no top because daddy has no top on his head?

Another silly question a child might ask a parent is: To make the new Burger King Jalapeno & Cheddar BK Stuffed Steakhouse burger, do they make the cows eat jalapenos and cheese?

If a child asks a parent that, it’s the responsibility of the parent to set them straight and tell them that pieces of jalapenos and small chunks of cheddar cheese are added later to the ground beef. However, if a child turns the question into a statement, he or she might be eating glue.

Stuffing a burger patty with ingredients that are usually on top of it isn’t something Burger King came up with first, although they are the first of the fast food giants to do so.

Almost exactly two years ago, Burger King released the Angry Whopper for a limited time. When I reviewed it back then, I was disappointed to discover it wasn’t as angry as I hoped. I would consider it having a level of anger that could easily be controlled with taking a timeout or deep breathing exercises.

However, the Jalapeno & Cheddar BK Stuffed Steakhouse is definitely angrier than the Angry Whopper, but not drunk Mel Gibson talking on the phone to his girlfriend angry. It’s angry enough that I think it might need to take anger management classes or a low dose of prescription drugs.

Burger King Jalapeno & Cheddar BK Stuffed Steakhouse Patty

The jalapeno pieces in the burger patty aren’t the only ingredients that make the Jalapeno & Cheddar BK Stuffed Steakhouse spicy hot; it’s also the creamy poblano sauce, which tastes like a spicy thousand island salad dressing. These spicy ingredients not only brought the heat, but they also gave it a flavor that I think makes it tastier than any other BK Steakhouse burger I’ve tried. Although, in my eyes, that’s not hard to do, since I think other Steakhouse burgers are quite bland.

Burger King Jalapeno & Cheddar BK Stuffed Steakhouse Split

The Jalapeno & Cheddar BK Stuffed Steakhouse has the same lettuce, tomatoes and bun as the regular Steakhouse, so I’ll only spend these 26 words on them. Surprisingly, the thick burger patty didn’t turn out as dry as I thought it would be. Perhaps my slightly juicy burger turned out the way it did because of the liquid from the jalapenos, or maybe the Burger King I went to has a flame-broiling master.

As for the cheddar stuffed in the ground beef, it does add to the flavor of the burger, but the spicy ingredients are definitely the screaming children trying to gain your attention. I’m just glad they didn’t go all Pizza Hut on this burger and stuff the cheese into the bun.

Oh great, I probably gave Burger King another idea. I hope if Burger King does come up with a Jalapeno & Cheddar BK Stuffed Steakhouse with a stuffed bun, it’s as good as the regular Jalapeno & Cheddar BK Stuffed Steakhouse.

Item: Burger King Jalapeno & Cheddar BK Stuffed Steakhouse Burger
Price: $3.99
Size: 1 sandwich
Purchased at: Burger King
Rating: 7 out of 10
Pros: Nice heat from jalapeno and poblano sauce. Tastiest of the Steakhouse burgers. Poblano sauce tastes like a spicy thousand island dressing. Stuffing jalapenos in burger patty and not under the bun means no falling jalapeno slices. Surprisingly slightly juicy burger patty.
Cons: Probably not good to eat daily, or every other day. Lame iceberg lettuce. Buying a convertible to make up for balding. Eating glue. Mel Gibson drunk dialing.

    You know that’s right

  2. Mero says:

    Damn they need to bring that stuff here to Europe BK’s
    i want this.

  3. Justin says:

    It would be funny if BK sues you for slander because the burger only contains 174 grams of trans fat or something like that.

  4. Chuck says:

    The patty looks intriguing, the rest of the ingredients do not. I’ll stick with Whataburger or Five Guys for now.

  5. amanda says:

    I was also impressed with the patty. On another note, I didn’t know that, nor did I ever ponder about the word “dictionary” in the dictionary

  6. Molly says:

    Why do you have such butch dinnerware? What happened to your I’m a sensitive guy Asian-y plates with the flowers?

  7. Kelley says:

    I was impressed by the heat too. Definitely one of the better gimmicky burgers to come out in recent history. Also, it is scary that your readers make note of your flatware. Just saying.

  8. Nathan says:

    The problem with fast food and its quality is that there are so many unknown factors that go into play when making your food. The quality of this sandwich, and all others, is dependent of the person(s) making it, serving it, AND ordering it. If you order it without tomatoes, then add your own, as I have just now done, it is not bad! It doesn’t look anything like the pictures in this article. It’s not as spicy as I’d like, so I added some hot sauce. With no alterations, the sandwich is enjoyable.

  9. Ralph D. says:

    The lettuce is too scraggly, cut wrong. Overall, the sandwich is excellent, grilled just right, my 3rd in 3 days. I’m on my way there now, maybe I’ll have 2. I urgently need to overdo it because I need to burn out on this tasty thing. I’m supposedly watching my weight!
