Green Chile Cheeseburgers

Well, I finally feel like we are starting to get some decent summer weather, so here’s a great burger recipe! Or should I say Cheeseburger recipe. I love a juicy burger. When I was pregnant, I only had a “gotta have it now or someone is going to die” craving twice. And one of those times, it was for a burger. {God bless Wendy’s!}

I just love burgers.

Actually, in college, there was this tiny town an hour away with a sports bar in it that had AMAZING burgers and onion rings. I only ever went there three times because it was so good, but oh so bad. But delicious. And gut busting. {*If ever you are driving through Driggs, Idaho, make sure you stop at O’Rourkes!}

I have a burger problem. And an onion ring addiction {Thanks a lot, Sonic!}.

I’m addicted to a lot of things….

Something else that falls under that category: mild green chiles.{Random, right?!} I love their flavor. So, I made these for dinner the other night and I fell in love. {Since my husband is not around, I just have too much extra love to give.}

If I could have changed anything, however, it would be to add more cheese and more green chiles. Go figure.

So, give these a whirl. Make sure you load on the cheese and the sauce. They are well worth it! :) Promise.

Ingredients:

for the patties-
1 lb. ground beef {80/20}
1/4 cup grated sweet onion
1/4 cup BBQ sauce
1 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
salt
pepper

for the sauce-
1 small can diced green chiles {use the mild unless you like the spice}
1/2 cup green enchilada sauce {use a good one- I used Les Palmas brand}

4 thick slices monterey jack cheese {or any other kind you like}
4 hamburger buns
any other desired hamburger toppings: tomatoes, onions, lettuce, etc.

Directions:

Preheat outdoor grill to medium high.

In a large bowl, mix all ingredients together for the burger patties. Divide into 4 even balls and form into patties with a slight depression in the middle for even cooking time. Grill burgers about 5 minutes per side or until done to your liking. Once you flip your patties once, top with a slice of cheese and cover to melt. Toast buns in the last two minutes of cooking, if desired. Remove everything from grill.

In a small bowl, stir together green chiles and enchilada sauce. Microwave to warm and set aside.

Build burger by topping cheeseburger with lots of green chile sauce and any other desired toppings.
