This recipe is from Eating Well magazine’s May/June 2011 issue. It was tasty and didn’t take long to whip up.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Green Chile Burger

  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1 pound lean (90% or leaner) ground beef or ground bison
  • 2 4-ounce cans diced green chiles, drained, divided
  • 1/2 cup shredded pepper Jack cheese, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 4 whole-wheat hamburger buns, toasted
  • 1 cup very thinly sliced iceberg or romaine lettuce
  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.
  2. Place onion in a small bowl and cover with cold water.
  3. Place beef, 1 can drained chiles, 1/4 cup cheese, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Gently combine without overmixing. Form into 4 patties, about 3/4 inch thick.
  4. Oil the grill rack. Grill the burgers, turning once, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 155°F (165°F for beef), 4 to 5 minutes per side. Top each burger with an equal portion of the remaining green chiles and sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup cheese. Cook until the cheese is melted, about 1 minute more.
  5. Drain the onion. Assemble the burgers on toasted buns with onion and shredded lettuce.
