Green Chile Burgers

Every once in a while I really crave a burger, and Jeff's are really good. I stood behind him, pen in hand, to write down exactly what he was doing. Other than needing a little bit more green chile in it, they were really good. I've said it before and I will say it again, I am sure glad Jeff likes to grill. I really do not like to clean up the kitchen and the clean up is just so much easier when all the cooking is done outside! I guess I should stop complaining about all of our hot weather. If it were not so warm in Austin, then we would not be able to grill year round.

Green Chile Burgers

1 lb. ground beef (85%)
2 mild roasted green chiles, chopped
1 t worchestershire
1/4 t paprika
1/4 t garlic powder
1/4 t onion powder
1/4 t kosher salt
1/8 t freshly ground pepper
1 t soy sauce

Mix all the ingredients into the ground beef. (It is easiest to used your hands) The patties should be 20% bigger than the bun because they shrink while as they cook. We made 3 burgers with the 1 lb. of meat. Once the patties were made, Jeff put them into the freezer for 15 or 20 minutes before putting them on the grill. (He says this helps them stay together on the grill.)

Bon Appetit!


  1. Wow! This is more or less a Jeffy recipe! Will have to try it :)

  2. It is... I told him he should post it on the blog but he wouldn't. He said if he did a recipe it would have to be much more interesting, like roasting a pig in the ground. I hope he was kidding.

  3. I like that Emily always comments under Dennis' it looks like Dennis says "Jeffy" with a :)
