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.
