Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 30 min.

My husband loves hamburgers and Mexican food, so I combined the two to create this zesty sandwich. Garnish these dressed-up burgers with sliced avocados if you like. —Darlene Wilkinson, Quilcene, Washington


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 can (4 ounces) whole green chiles, drained and halved
  • 4 slices Colby-Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 4 sandwich buns, split
  • Sour cream


  1. Shape beef into four patties. In a skillet over medium heat, brown patties on both sides. Top each with onion, chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 5 minutes or until meat is no longer pink.
  2. Top each patty with chiles and a slice of cheese. Cover and cook 3 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. In a small bowl, combine salsa and ketchup. Place burgers on buns; serve with the salsa mixture and sour cream.
