What’s your favorite cheese to go on a burger? Check out my ultimate taco cheeseburger with chipotle mayo and pepper jack.

A few weeks ago I told you about my love affair with cheeseburgers. Just looking at this photo is bringing on the craving, though that isn’t on the menu this week. But, oh, maybe it’s time for a change to the menu plan.

Apparently, nine out of ten Americans prefer cheese on their burgers. Did you know that? I’m one of nine, are you?

Sargento challenged me to come up with the Ultimate Cheeseburger, and I’m kind of proud of this one. It boasts of my California heritage…. beef patty seasoned with traditional “taco” flavors, pepper jack cheese, crisp lettuce, juicy tomato, all on a homemade hamburger bun and slathered with a delicious cilantro-chipotle mayonnaise.

It’s like a taco and a cheeseburger got married. And lived happily ever after.

If you’re game, I recommend you grill up a batch of these babies this weekend. You can thank me later.

About America’s Ultimate Cheeseburger Contest

To celebrate America’s love affair with this summertime classic, Sargento has challenged chefs at iconic burger joints from coast to coast to create “America’s Ultimate Cheeseburger”.

Cities and burger joints that were challenged include:

• Brooklyn, NY: 67 Burger “Pastrami Spiced Swiss Burger”
• Miami, FL: The Filling Station “The Filling Station Cheeseburger”
• Chicago, IL: Butcher & the Burger “Drill Sargento Burger”
• Milwaukee, WI: Sobelman’s “Bacon Double Cheeseburger”
• San Diego, CA: Crazee Burger “Crazee Cheeseburger”

So far, it looks like Miami has some very active Facebook fans. Holy smokes! We haven’t had a chance to get ourselves to Crazee Burger yet, but we are looking forward to it. How fun to have a local burger joint that’s kind of wild and crazy.

You can support your local restaurant by visiting the “America’s Ultimate Cheeseburger” tab on the Sargento Facebook page to cast your vote! Fans can also join in on the cheeseburger love by submitting their own cheeseburger recipe.
