Variations Ideas

  • Ground Beef – You can also ground turkey or a mixture of both to make this recipe. We prefer to use lean ground beef for the best flavor.
  • Seasoning – This burger can be made with different types of seasoning to make this green chile burger your own.
  • Peppers – If you can’t find Green Chile’s you can also make this burger with jalapenos.

How to Make Green Chili Burger

  • Step 1 – Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Cut each of the poblano peppers in half and remove the seeds. Line a baking sheet with foil and place the poblano peppers cut side down on the baking sheet. Drizzle them with olive oil and season them with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. 
  • Step 2 – Bake for 15 minutes until the skins of the peppers are blackened slightly. Remove the peppers from the oven and let them cool for 5 minutes. Once you can touch the peppers, remove the skins and dice them into small pieces and set aside.  
  • Step 3 – Divide the ground beef into 6 even balls (approximately ? lb each). Then form the balls into patties that are approximately 4 inches wide and 1 inch thick.  Place the patties in the refrigerator (covered in plastic wrap) while you preheat the grill.
  • Step 4 – Preheat the Grill over medium high heat (approximately 450-500 degrees Fahrenheit). Rub oil on the grill grates to prevent the patties from sticking to the grill.
  • Step 5 – Place the patties on the grill over direct heat.  Season the patties with salt and pepper. 
  • Step 6 – Cook for 4-8 minutes (flipping the patties halfway through the cook time) depending on how you like your burger cooked (see notes).  Use an instant-read meat thermometer to make sure that the burgers are cooked to your preference.
  • Step 7 – Place a slice of cheese on each patty to melt and place the buns on the grill and cook for 1 minute until they are browned slightly.  Watch them closely so that they do not burn.
  • Step 8 – Remove the beef from the grill and place them on a burger.  Top with the diced green chiles.  
  • Step 9 – Serve immediately while warm and enjoy! 

Expert Tips

  • Prepare Green Chili – Prepare the green chili by roasting in the oven. We like to broil the green chili’s to create a delicious texture.
  • Cooking Time – Cooking the burgers will vary based on how well you want them done. We like to melt the cheese while the burger is on the hot grill for best results.
