  1. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, mustard, cumin, lemon juice, salt and pepper; cover and refrigerate until serving.
  2. Grill green pepper, covered, over medium heat until skin blisters, about 6 minutes. With tongs, rotate pepper a quarter turn. Grill and rotate until all sides are blackened. Immediately place pepper in a bowl; cover and let stand for 15-20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, shape beef into two patties. Grill, uncovered, over medium-hot heat for 7-9 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 160 degrees F.
  4. Peel off and discard charred skin from green pepper; remove stem and seeds. Cut pepper in half. Top each patty with green pepper and cheese; grill 1 minute longer or until cheese is melted.
  5. Grill buns, cut side down, for 1-2 minutes or until toasted. Spread bun bottoms with mayonnaise mixture; top with burgers, tomato, onion and lettuce. Replace bun tops.

Wonderful burger! I used hatch fire roasted green chiles. I just pressed them gently into 1 side of the beef patty before cooking. The mayo-mustard condiment was fabulous with this and overall t...

Awesome Burger... I added 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper to give the sauce a kick... along with a couple dashes of hot sauce. But overall, great burger !!!

I used this as a base recipe just based on my families preferences. It is a very tasty and a nice change from boring ol' burgers. I did as others did and just minced the green pepper (with a lit...
