- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies

- In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove to paper towels to drain. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine onion and green chilies; set aside. Shape beef into eight patties. Top half of patties with onion mixture. Cover with remaining patties and firmly press edges to seal.

"These are delicious! I do recommend sauteing the onions a bit first though."
