Green Chile Cheeseburgers

I was browsing through the recipes on Taste of Home Cooking, who hosts the roundups, and found this one under Easy Weeknight Meals roundup. She modified the original Bobby Flay recipe to make an easy dinner that is definitely a winner. We loved this burger and will be making it again!

2 lbs ground chuck
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
8 thin slices of provolone
4 hamburger buns, toasted
2 cans green chiles
Mayo, optional
Romaine lettuce leaves, optional
4 thick slices tomatoes, optional

Heat grill to high. Form meat into 4 burgers and season each burger on both sides with 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp of pepper. Grill until charred on both sides and cooked to desired doneness.

Divide the cans of green chiles onto the burgers. Place 2 slices of cheese on each burger, close the grill lid or tent with foil, and cook until the cheese has just melted and chiles are warmed, about 1 minute. Place burgers on buns and top with mayo, lettuce, and tomato, if desired. Enjoy!
