½ cup cooked bacon, cut into pieces

2 jalapeños, minced

1. Combine cheese, bacon pieces, jalapeños, and ranch in a bowl. Stir together and refrigerate.

2. Season the ground beef with salt and pepper in a large bowl, and mix in with your hands. 

3. Grab a baseball-sized piece of beef. Roll it with your hands into a ball and place on a parchment lined baking tray.
