Green Chili Burger (Burger Week) #burgers


These Green Chili Burgers are a wonderful Tex-Mex inspired burger to have on your Memorial Day cookout.
My grocery store had Hass avocados 2 for a $1 recently.  I can't resist a good deal so I bought about six of them.  Then I had to come up with a bunch of recipes to use them in!  That always happens to me when I buy on impulse because I see a good deal.  I once bought 24 pounds of sweet potatoes because it was 3 pounds for a dollar!  We ate sweet potatoes in everything that month.   I think I need help.  LOL! 

Okay... let me get back to this fun burger.  My husband loves a big juicy burger, so I thought this Green Chili Burger would be a perfect burger to top with some beautiful green slices of avocado. 

I set out to make the burger and lunch was ready in less than 20 minutes.   Of course, my husband had to wait patiently for me to photograph the burgers for the blog before he could get the green light to eat them.  Life is not so easy when you are married to a food blogger... Photos always come first!  When he finally got his hands around one of these burgers, he said the wait was worth it and had a big smile on his face.

Green Chili Burger  
Recipe by Ramona from Kitchen Simmer

Hamburger Ingredients:
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
4oz can diced green chilies
1 tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
salt and black pepper to taste
red chili flakes to taste (optional)

Toppings and Condiments
4oz Monterey Jack Cheese or as needed
Hamburger buns (as needed)
Tomato slices
Sliced avocado (squeeze some lime juice to keep from browning)
prepared salsa (bottled or fresh)


Mix all hamburger ingredients together.  Form into 4-6 equal size patties (depending on the size of burger you want).  Heat skillet and cook burger 4-5 minutes on each side to cook them well done.

Flip burger and place about one ounce of shredded Monterey Jack cheese on top of each burger.  Tent with foil and cook burger and melt cheese.   Toast hamburger buns, apply mayonnaise on each bun then layer with lettuce, tomato, avocado and salsa.  Enjoy.
