This green chile burger is one of my favorite things to eat! It is piled high with amazingly delicious toppings and the burger itself is incredibly tasty. You can’t go wrong with this!
Here in NM, we serve green chile on everything and since moving here it has become one of my favorite foods. It takes burgers to the next level always- but all the other toppings on this burger make it taste out of this world good!
I love the combination of a runny egg, the sweet potato and the amazing burger. Not to mention the cheese with the pickles and the onion. Okay I really love everything about this burger. Have I said that enough?
Where to get green chile?
I use green chile that I bought back during harvest time in October. We had it roasted and then I peeled, chopped and froze it. Last year we bought 40lbs so we would have enough to last us until next harvest. We take our green chile seriously here! Most of the chile is the famous Hatch green chile (grown in Hatch, NM amazingly enough), but people grow green chile all over NM and they all claim to be the best! I love trying chile from different regions.
If you can’t find yummy fresh green chile have no fear! Many stores now carry it in the frozen section at their grocery store or if you don’t have that option there is always the canned kind.
This hamburger is not only a feast for the eyes but is satisfying in every way! I made these when we had some friends coming over and everyone loved them. They can get a little messy with the runny egg, but it is 100% worth it! Serve it up with some chips or this easy pasta salad and you are good to go!
