Stuffed Hatch Chile Cheeseburger

What’s better than a cheeseburger and a cold beer after spending a long, hot summer day prepping the backyard for our fall vegetable garden? A stuffed cheeseburger on homemade buns, doused in queso and two beers.

Stuffed Hatch Chile Cheeseburger

Last summer’s stuffed bacon cheeseburger has lent itself to several different creations and now we can add a Hatch Chile Cheeseburger to that list. It’s simply a plain burger, turned inside-out cheeseburger: it’s stuffed with Monterrey Jack and chopped hatch chiles, grilled, and then served topped with avocado and with a hefty scoop of Hatch chile con queso.

It’s a borderline “fork and knife” burger. Just make sure you have plenty of tortilla chips on hand to take care of the drips.
