This roasted chile cheeseburger is the ultimate Colorado chile cheeseburger. It’s piled high with a beautiful half pound beef patty, and all the fixings you could image. But, the pièce de résistance are the Pueblo green chiles capping it all off!


Units Scale
  • 2 lbs. Ground Hamburger (20%), formed into 4 patties
  • 48 Pueblo Green Chiles, roasted, peeled, seeded
  • 4 Hamburger Buns, toasted (good quality)
  • 4 slices Pepper Jack Cheese, Cheddar or Jalapeño Havarti
  • 1 Slicing Tomato, sliced
  • 1 Purple Onion, sliced
  • Minced Garlic, for topping burgers
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper, to taste
  • Himalayan Pink Salt, to taste


  1. Preheat the grill: Preheat the grill on high heat for about 10 minutes. Turn down to medium right before placing the meat on the grill.
  2. Form the patties: Divide the meat into four equal portions. Form each portion loosely, and make a deep depression in the center with your thumb.
  3. Season generously: Season both sides of the hamburger patties with salt and pepper. Top each with a good amount of minced garlic as well.
  4. Cook: Place on the grill, and cook for a minimum of 8 minutes per side, or until cooked to desired degree of doneness. (Given the thickness of the patties, as pictured, they are cooked for at least 8 minutes a side for medium to medium-well).
  5. Veggies: During this time, you can prep the tomato and onion.
  6. Cheese & Chile: Add the cheese and 1-2 chiles per burger during the last minute of cooking, and close the grill cover to melt the cheese.
  7. Toast the buns: Remove the green chile cheeseburgers to a paper towel lined plate, and toast the hamburger buns.
  8. Assemble: Top each green chile cheeseburger with a thick slice of tomato and onion, and any other condiments you desire. Serve immediately!


  • Pueblo Roasted Green Chiles: If you can’t get ahold of these chiles, you can roast any other long green chile or use jarred roasted green chiles.
  • Cheese: Use a spicy pepper jack, cheddar or a dairy-free option. I will say though, the spicy pepper jack is amazing with the chile.
  • Hamburger Buns: Use a good quality bun like a pretzel bun or something similar.
