Green Chile Cheeseburgers

I've been meaning to try this recipe for so long, but I've been really burnt out on burgers. My husband has been wanting to use his grill for every meal, so I finally was like...let's do this one. And then on that day he was installing a cold air intake in his car, so I ended up grilling. I really liked this burger because the burger itself isn't overwhelmingly flavored any which way. I feel like a lot of the burgers I eat have too much garlic or too much something else that takes away from the flavor of the hamburger. This one was just right for seasoning - and I loved the green chile sauce! Next time I just need to remember to not put a gourmet burger on a $0.80 bun from Wally World! LOL

What you need:
  • 2 lbs. ground chuck (80% lean 20% fat)
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. ground pepper
  • 8 slices Provolone
  • 4 good-quality hamburger buns (I must remember this next time)
  • Toppings: lettuce, tomatoes, pickled jalapenos, etc.
Green Chili Sauce:
  • 2 poblanos, grilled, peeled, seeded, and chopped
  • 1 medium white onion, grilled and chopped
  • 1 to 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. fresh oregano leaves
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
Fire up your grill and get your poblanos and onion on as soon as you can. Meanwhile, place the rest of the ingredients for the chili sauce into your blender.

While the veggies are grilling, form your meat into four patties and season with salt and pepper.
Remove veggies and chop them up. Place in blender and blend until smooth.

Add burgers to the grill - char on both sides until desired doneness.

Place 2 slices of Provolone on each burger and close the lid or cover with foil. Cook until cheese has melted, about 1 minute. Serve burgers topped with a few tbsp. of chile sauce, lettuce, tomato, pickled jalapeno, etc.

Nothing like a big, tasty green chile burger this one! If you get a chance, try use New Mexico green chile. It will yield a different flavor from the poblano but be just as good if not better (in my humble opinion. :) ) Great looking burger!
