Would You Top Your Guacamole with Melted Cheese?

Food & Wine

Interestingly, the cheese in the photo is off to the side, contained in a little ramekin. Maybe the folks at Food & Wine thought it safer not to show melted cheese all over a bowl of guacamole? What do you think of this combination? Let us know, below...

There's nothing complicated about the recipe; it really is just a chunky, traditional guacamole with some microwaved Monterey Jack on top.

As far as pros, well, it's guacamole. With cheese. Two delicious things that can't possibly be bad together. The cons, in our opinion, would be that the hot cheese would take away from the bright, fresh flavors of avocado, cilantro, jalapeño, and lime. Also, we like our guacamole cold; we're not sure we'd appreciate the blending of textures and temperatures.
