    Servings and Ingredients

    Serves 3
    1 lbs. lean ground beef
    3 Hy-Vee Bakery Fresh sesame buns, split
    6 Hy-Vee pepper jack cheese slices
    1 medium white onion, sliced and sauteed
    1 jalapeno, thinly sliced
    1 small red bell pepper, sliced
    1 tsp. dried cilantro


    1. Lightly grease grill rack. Prepare a charcoal or gas grill for direct cooking over medium heat.
    2. Divide ground beef into thirds and form into patties. Make a slight indentation in center of each burger for even cooking.
