A hint of lime, jerk seasoning and peppers add a burst of Caribbean flavor to this “glam-burger.” A juicy, beef patty topped with Sargento Deli Style Sliced Chipotle Cheddar Cheese brings out a smoky richness that your family will love. Be sure to wipe off any sand that you may get between your toes!
