got chipotle?



The gas grill has been given a good spring clean and is now officially fired up and ready to go at the manor! These smoky pork burgers topped with Muenster and creamy avocado are a tasty variation from your regular old hamburg. Give 'em a whirl. They're delicious.



Chipotle Pork Cheeseburgers

1 lb freshly ground pork, not too lean
2 tsp minced chipotle in adobo plus 1 tsp adobo sauce
2 garlic cloves, forced through a press
4 slices Muenster cheese
4 hamburger buns
mayo to taste
1 large tomatillo, husked, rinsed, sliced (couldn't find any; had to use tomato)
1/2 avocado, sliced
1/2 cup cilantro sprigs

Mix pork with the garlic, chipotle, sauce, garlic and salt to taste. Form into patties and grill. Serve with the rest of the ingredients on toasted buns.


They pair perfectly with this wonderful corn and tomato scramble. Click HERE for the recipe.

  12. I am now officially in the mood for some serious grilling. That burger looks delicious and, once again, your photo is magazine-worthy.

  13. They look delish! Unfortunately I gave up pork, except for the occasional bacon. Bacon isn't really pork is it??

  14. Yummy!

    One of my priced possessions is a small can of Goya chipotle peppers in adobe sauce. I brought it with me when we moved from the US.

  18. Good Day Willow,

    Thanks for the spicy suggestion. I love using wonderful peppers like anchos, cascabels, guajillos, mulattos and chipotles. Just last night I marinated a couple steaks in a chipotle, garlic, sherry wine vinegar, pepper blend. Perhaps I'll grill them up tonight for a smoky, fiery treat! Of course taking the time to make a gorgeous mole with chocolate etc... is always a special and worthwhile pursuit.

    Best,

    David

  20. We do something like this, from time to time, but I don't like to experiment with my food. It is OK for others to do that. If I taste something and like it then it is OK for Patty to make it from then on. LOL

    Mom used to fry thick hamburgers and mixed the meat beforehand with little green onions or regular diced onions and that gave the hamburger a totally different taste I would never walk a mile for.

    I do like a think slice of cheese on top of the hamburger -- on the 'done' side and then leave it there until it either melts and falls off into the hot coals or it catches on fire and burns to a crisp.

    Yep. A dozen soft fried eggs in grease at least an inch deep, boiling and rolling -- every morning.
