You are going to love my Ultimate Green Chile Bacon Cheeseburger. Roasted green chiles and salty delicious bacon put this burger on our "All-Time Favorites" list. Not to mention the amazing aroma of roasting chiles that will have your family hurrying home for dinner.
Burger Month is here! I am so excited! This year, I was invited to join the Burger Month Celebration and enter an epic burger of my own, a burger that can live up to the challenge. After much grilling, taste testing and votes from family and friends, The Ultimate Green Chile Bacon Cheeseburger was the clear winner. It is our favorite burger of all time and never fails to please the crowd.
The things I love best about this Ultimate Green Chile Bacon Cheeseburger (besides the salty bacon and the fragrant roasted chiles) is that you don't have to stand in the kitchen all day making special sauces and toppings. Just prepare a tray of your ingredients and keep them chilled until party time. Then, roast the chiles right on the grill before you put the burgers on. It's that easy!
