INGREDIENTS

  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 3 tbs diced green chilies
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Olive oil (to grease pan or grill if desired)
  • 4-6 slices pepper jack cheese
  • 4-6 hamburger buns
  • To top: guacamole, fresh tomato salsa, lettuce

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Heat grill or grill pan to medium-high heat.
  2. In a bowl, mix together ground beef, chilies, and cheese until well combined (using your hands works best). Divide meat into 4 to 6 mounds and flatten each mound with your hands to create a patty. Grease grill or grill pan with olive oil and cook burgers to desired doneness.
  3. Add a piece of pepper jack cheese to each burger and allow cheese to melt on the burger by closing grill or by placing a lid over the grill pan (the steam helps the cheese melt quickly).
  4. Place each burger on a bun and top with a lettuce leaf, guacamole, and fresh tomato salsa.
