Say Cheese! Pork Chipotle Muenster Burgers

Muenster is an American creation related to France's Munster cheese. It has a smooth texture, yellow interior, and orange rind. Muenster is incredibly mild in flavor with a taste somewhere between American cheese and Jack cheese. The cow's milk cheese is semisoft and great for melting. It's ideal on a grilled cheese sandwich, or in my case, a pork chipotle cheeseburger. To check out the recipe, which is perfect for this weekend's kickoff to Summer,

When I saw this on Gourmet's website, I was immediately smitten. What's not to love about a combination of spicy pork, oozing cheese, and creamy avocado? I followed the recipe word for word and was impressed with the sheer perfection of the burger. The recipe takes the American classic and infuses it with Latin flavors. The final burger is a juicy, smoky, crunchy (thanks to the ingenious addition of tomatillos) masterpiece. Don't be afraid of the mayonnaise; instead, embrace it as a key ingredient that keeps the burger moist.

Sounds delicious - I might try it with ground turkey to be a bit healthier, but a great combination of flavors.
