Cheddar Beer Burgers - Happy 4th of July

We had a few of our Twitter friends over Saturday evening for a night of food and fireworks. I wanted to come up with a new recipe for grilled burgers and these turned out totally awesome! The amounts in the recipe are approximate as I really don't measure anything when I am making things up!

1 1/2 lb. Ground Beef
4 oz. Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese, diced into 1/4 inch cubes
1/2 cup Lager Beer (I used Yeungling)
1/4 cup fresh Cilantro chopped
1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1 teaspoon Paprika
1 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly cracked Pepper Blend (I *love* the new McCormick Peppercorn Medley Grinder)

Preheat grill.
In a large mixing bowl combine all of the above ingredients. Form into patties with the centers slightly thinner than the outside edges to prevent the edges from overcooking before the centers are done.
Grill on lightly greased grill at medium heat to the *done*ness of your liking. Enjoy...we sure did!
