Green Chile Cheeseburgers

Well, I finally feel like we are starting to get some decent summer weather, so here’s a great burger recipe! Or should I say Cheeseburger recipe. I love a juicy burger. When I was pregnant, I only had a “gotta have it now or someone is going to die” craving twice. And one of those times, it was for a burger. {God bless Wendy’s!}

I just love burgers.

Actually, in college, there was this tiny town an hour away with a sports bar in it that had AMAZING burgers and onion rings. I only ever went there three times because it was so good, but oh so bad. But delicious. And gut busting. {*If ever you are driving through Driggs, Idaho, make sure you stop at O’Rourkes!}

I have a burger problem. And an onion ring addiction {Thanks a lot, Sonic!}.

I’m addicted to a lot of things….

Something else that falls under that category: mild green chiles.{Random, right?!} I love their flavor. So, I made these for dinner the other night and I fell in love. {Since my husband is not around, I just have too much extra love to give.}

If I could have changed anything, however, it would be to add more cheese and more green chiles. Go figure.

So, give these a whirl. Make sure you load on the cheese and the sauce. They are well worth it! 🙂 Promise.

Green Chile Cheeseburger

Top this juicy Green Chile Cheeseburger with a tasty green chile sauce and then pile it high with your favorite burger fixings.
servings 4 burgers
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes


for the patties-

  • 1 lb ground beef 80/20
  • 1/4 cup grated sweet onion
  • 1/4 cup BBQ sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • salt
  • pepper

for the sauce-

  • 1 small can diced green chiles use the mild unless you like the spice
  • 1/2 cup green enchilada sauce use a good one- I used Les Palmas brand
  • 4 thick slices monterey jack cheese or any other kind you like
  • 4 hamburger buns

any other desired hamburger toppings:

  • tomatoes
  • onions
  • lettuce etc.


  • Preheat outdoor grill to medium high.
  • In a large bowl, mix all ingredients together for the burger patties. Divide into 4 even balls and form into patties with a slight depression in the middle for even cooking time. Grill burgers about 5 minutes per side or until done to your liking. Once you flip your patties once, top with a slice of cheese and cover to melt. Toast buns in the last two minutes of cooking, if desired. Remove everything from grill.
  • In a small bowl, stir together green chiles and enchilada sauce. Microwave to warm and set aside.
  • Build burger by topping cheeseburger with lots of green chile sauce and any other desired toppings.
