I have a recipe for Green Chile & Cream Cheese Burgers to kick off my Blogger Burger Club! A crazy, delicious idea that was born a few weeks ago when my Dad knocked on my door to tell me about the burger he saw on Man vs. Food: a jalapeno and cream cheese topped burger.
The fact that he was telling me about it could only mean one thing. He wanted me to make it for him. And so I did. Sort of. A wimpier version with green chiles.
To get back to the story…A few days later I saw a story about a Burger of the Month Club, a group of men who get together and rate bacon cheeseburgers all over NYC. I couldn’t help but think it was fate.
I did a brief search to see if any other bloggers were doing anything like it and found nothing. What I did find was that burger of the month clubs have been started in other cities. So why not a blogger burger club?
With summer coming I imagine we’ll all be eating more burgers. Why not make it fun and try some new recipes we might not otherwise have tried?!
-Every two or three weeks I will post a burger to rate. It will be different from the Burger of the Month club because we will be rating the fixings/toppings/preparations more so than the burger itself.
-Make the green chile pepper & cream cheese burger, blog about it with your rating, link to me and let me know by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or by adding your link to the MckLinky below.
-The ratings will be based on a four-star rating:
-I will average out the ratings to give it one singular rating and also include a list of your links and ratings in a post where I announce the next burger.
Did you see this particular episode of Man vs. Food? It was in Denver, Colorado at Duff’s Cherry Cricket where jalapenos are very generously piled on a burger with a thick slice of cream cheese.
My Dad and I both enjoyed this burger, although agreed we would of liked it to be a little spicier. I will be trying the burger again with jalapenos but for now my rating stands at 3 stars.
What I loved about it was how the cool cream cheese picks up a little warmth from the burger and just starts to soften and melt enough to mingle with the chiles for a delicious Southwest style flavor making it one of the most unique burgers I’ve ever eaten.
(Makes 2 burgers)
