Print Friendly and PDF
Memorial Day is coming and it’s time to have fun with burgers on the grill! Here is a great recipe you may want to try!

1 pound ground pork
2 teaspoons minced chipotle in adobo plus 1 teaspoon adobo sauce
2 garlic cloves, forced through a garlic press
4 oz. Sharp Cheddar Cheese Cubed
4 hamburger buns, toasted
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 large tomatillo (1/4 pound), husked and rinsed, then sliced
1/2 small avocado, sliced
1/2 cup cilantro sprigs

Prepare grill for direct-heat cooking over medium heat. Gently mix pork, chipotle, garlic, and a scant teaspoon salt until just combined. Form into 4 (1/2-inch-thick) patties and stuff 4 medium size cubes of cheese inside each one in the center and make sure the cheese is fully enclosed by the meat and sealed well.  Oil grill rack, then grill patties, covered, 4 minutes. Flip patties and top with a slice of cheese. Grill, covered, until just cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes more.  Spread buns with mayonnaise and assemble burgers with tomatillo, avocado, and cilantro.
