These Green Chile Bacon Burgers serve up the most flavorful, spicy cheeseburgers and make the perfect grilled dinner when served up with green chile aioli.
We love a good burger in our house. It’s my husband’s favorite meal. We keep trying to out do the previous burger, making our never ending quest for the best possible burger on the planet a tasty journey. This, my friends, is a great burger.
Now, I normally like to start with homemade hamburger buns, but let’s face it. I have 1.5 jobs plus I’m a mom, so I don’t always have as much time for food as I’d like. I did the next best thing to homemade, and then I suppose bakery made, and got *gasp* prepackaged store bought buns! The sticker said they were made right here in town so that made me feel better.
To make these ultimate patties, you’re gonna want to cook up some wonderful bacon ends & pieces, chop up some roasted green chile, rip open a pack of onion dip mix (the secret to making any burger patty awesome), and use grassfed ground beef.
On top of all that, while your burgers are grilling, you’re gonna want to make up a batch of green chile aioli. It is so worth it. I promise.
And if you want to go the extra mile, and you should, you’ll need to melt some extra sharp white cheddar on your burger and serve it up with some fresh green arugula and crispy hot onion rings. Now that’s a meal!
Green Chile Bacon Burgers
- 1 pound ground beef grass fed
- 8 ounces bacon ends and pieces cooked
- 1.13 ounce package onion dip mix I use Trader Joe's
- 4 tablespoons roasted green chile minced
- green chile aioli
- 4 large buns
- 4 thick slices of white cheddar
- greens of your choice I used arugula
- homemade hamburger buns
- In large bowl, combine ground beef, bacon pieces, onion soup mix, and roasted green chili. Use hands to thoroughly but gently combine. Form into four equal sized patties and use your knuckle to press an indentation into the center of each patty.
- Grill over high heat, indentation side down first, until browned on the bottom, 5-10 minutes. Flip and allow to finish cooking until its cooked to your desire, another 5-10 minutes. Top with sliced cheese if you prefer it melt. Cooking with the indentation on the top at the end allows the juices to pool and soak back in. Allow burgers to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
- While patties are cooking, make up your green chili aioli and prepare your buns.
