"This is a wonderful flavour loaded burger. I had never tasted tomatillos raw -they are wonderful. They really added to the overall special taste of this burger. The recipe originated in a 2009 Gourmet magazine altered a bit by me. I used aged cheddar cheese use your favorite. Make 4 burgers if you wish I like to make 3 from a pound of meat. You may like to add mayo on the bun."
