the flavors of the green chile sauce are wonderful. i used cilantro, and i used smoked rather than grilled onions because i had some leftover. i made the burgers with the chile sauce, cheddar cheese, and sliced avocados. the recipe was a bit "sparse" on directions when it came to making the sauce.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sauce:.
  2. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and season with salt and pepper to taste. (A water if necessary to achieve the proper consistency.).
  3. Burgers:
  4. Heat grill to high. Form meat into 6 burgers and season with salt and pepper to taste. Grill until charred on both sides and cooked to desired doneness.
  5. Place 2 slices of the cheese on each burger; close the lid or tent with foil and cook until the cheese has just melted, about 1 minute.
  6. Place burgers on bun and top with green chili sauce, lettuce, tomatoes and pickled jalapeno, if desired.
  7. Note: Use high heat. A great tasting burger needs only to be on the grill 2 to 3 minutes on each side to arrive at a perfect medium doneness.
