Crank the heat for grilled mango, tomatillo salsa


If you can’t find Peppadews, substitute jarred banana peppers for a similar tang without a lot of heat.

Grilled tomatillo and mango salsa over blue cheese meatloaf burgers

Start to finish: 20 minutes

Servings: 6

12 ounces ground pork

12 ounces ground chuck

1 egg, beaten

1/2 cup breadcrumbs

1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

2 scallions, chopped

2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme

Kosher salt and ground black pepper

4 large tomatillos, halved

Olive oil

2 mangos, peeled, pitted and cut into spears

1 small red onion, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices

1/4 cup chopped Peppadew peppers

Hot sauce, to taste

6 large burger buns

In a medium bowl, mix together the pork, chuck, egg, breadcrumbs, blue cheese, mustard, scallions, thyme, 1 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper. Divide into 6 portions, shape into patties and press an indent into the center with your thumb. Set aside.

Heat the grill to high.

Arrange the tomatillos, mangos and red onion on a rimmed baking sheet and brush with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Grill the tomatillos, mangos and red onion until lightly charred and tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Allow to cool slightly, then dice. Mix together in a bowl along with the chopped peppers. Season with salt, pepper and hot sauce. Set aside.

Grill the burgers for 4 to 6 minutes per side, or to desired doneness. Serve on buns topped with the salsa.
