Green Chile Cheeseburgers

  • 1 1/2 pound ground beef sirloin
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon New Mexico chili powder
  • 5-6 fresh-roasted Hatch Chiles 
  • 1 fresh poblano chile
  • 1/4 cup minced onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped, cilantro
  • 2 garlic clove, minced
  • 4 thick slices cheddar or American cheese
  • 4 hamburger buns  
  1. In a large bowl gently but thoroughly combine the ground beef, salt, pepper, cumin, paprika, minced onion, cilantro and chili powder. Gently form the meat into four 6 ounce patties, about 1/2-inch thick, and place on a plate. Refrigerate the burgers, covered until needed.
  2. Trim off stems of roasted Hatch Chiles, slice in half and discard seeds and ribs. Chop the chiles to your preference, Some like the chiles in long strips others prefer them in smaller pieces.  
  3. Preheat grill. 
  4. Cook the burgers to desired degree of doneness. Top each burger with chopped chiles and a slice of cheese and cover, cooking until cheese melts over green chiles. Transfer each burger to a bun and top with your choice of dressings (lettuce, onion, ketchup, etc...) Serve immediately
