1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves


8 (3/4-ounce) slices Land O Lakes® Deli American

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat gas grill to medium or charcoal grill until coals are ash white.

  2. STEP 2

    Place whole jalapeño and red bell pepper on grill. Cook, turning often, 8-10 minutes or until most of the skin is blackened. Cool 10 minutes. Remove stems and seeds of peppers. Slice jalapeno into 12 thin strips. Cut bell pepper into 8 pieces. Set aside.

  3. STEP 3

    Combine turkey, cumin, salt, pepper, garlic and cilantro in bowl. Shape mixture into 4 patties. Flatten each patty to 4 inches.

  4. STEP 4

    Place patties onto grill. Grill, turning once, 12-16 minutes or until internal temperature reaches at least 165°F and meat is no longer pink in center. Top each burger with 2 slices cheese. Continue grilling 1-2 minutes or until cheese is melted.

  5. STEP 5

    Place burgers onto bottom half of buns. Top each with 3 slices grilled jalapeño pepper and 2 slices grilled red bell pepper. Top with remaining half of buns.
