  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup diced green chile

Green Chile Cheeseburger

  1. Combine ground beef, garlic, salt and pepper and mix well. Form into 4 round patties. Cook patties in a pan over medium heat, until cooked through. Add green chile and top with cheese. Reduce heat to medium-low and cover until cheese is melted. Remove from pan, and wipe pan clean. Add sourdough slices (or buns) to the same pan and toast on each side, until golden brown.
  2. Spread a little mayo on each bread slice, then build the green chile cheeseburger by layering the bread with the burger, tortilla strips, then pico de gallo.

Tortilla Strips:
