Cheddar stuffed cilantro jalapeno turkey burgers with cilantro cream -- mucho spicy!

This recipe has been in my Google reader for quite some time. This comes from “Bitchin’ in the Kitchen”. These burgers were delicious. Plus, I can think of a bunch of different uses for the sauce. I’ve done something similar in the past on top of fish.

Anyway, if summer is running out on you or you just want to use your grill, then try this out. I promise you will not be disappointed.

  1. Yum! That cilantro cream looks awesome and would be something I know my husband would love.
