Green Chile Burgers


  • 1 1/4 pounds ground beef
  • 1 clove garlic crushed and finely minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black or seasoned pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground chile mild
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 slices Monterey Jack cheese or 1/2 cup shredded Mexican blend of cheeses
  • 4 hamburger buns, split and toasted
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped mild green chili peppers, drained
  • 4 large slices sweet onion
  • 1 medium tomato, sliced
  • 4 leaves lettuce, romaine or your favorite
  • chunky salsa, fresh or good purchased salsa


Mix lean ground beef with garlic, pepper, ground chile, and salt in a large bowl. Shape into 4 flat patties. Preheat broiler or grill, then cook burgers about 4 inches from heat, turning when halfway done. Cook until very little or no pink remains. Just before serving, place a slice of cheese or grated cheese on each burger. Top each bun with a hamburger patty and cheese, green chile peppers, an onion slice, tomato slice, and lettuce leaf. Serve burgers with a dish of salsa on the side.
Serves 4.
