Blogger Burger Club: Green Chile & Cream Cheese Burgers

Hamburgers are quite possibly my all time favorite food, I've probably eaten more of them than anything else. I used to eat one at least three or four times a week when I was a teenager and always had access to a grill. I can remember days when I would eat a burger for every meal of the day. Not the healthiest of diets to be sure, but it does remind me that I need to post my breakfast burger. Heh.

Anyway, burgers are awesome, so when Reeni over at Cinnamon Spice and Everything Nice announced she was starting a Blogger Burger Club I was all about it. The way it works is she's going to announce a burger every few weeks and then people will make and rate it. This time it's green chilies and cream cheese and I just so happened to have all the ingredients on hand. So I made them. And they're wicked good.

The recipe is in the link above, but they're pretty simple. You saute up some onion and green chili or jalapenos and put that and some cream cheese on a burger. The cream cheese balances out the heat of the peppers and the flavors go really well together. Reeni had used green chilies and wished they had had a bit more heat. I used the same jarred, roasted green chilies I used in the green chili, chicken and bean enchiladas I made recently and they're fairly hot, but I would have liked a bit more oomph myself. Next time I'm going to do half and half green chilies and jalapenos, I bet that would be a good time.

To rate it, I give it three stars.
It probably could have had four with bacon. Heh.

Glad you tried these! I've been hoping to try a turkey version if I can get around to it. They sound sooo good!

Sage Trifle said...

Unusual and delicious sounding toppings for a burger. . .we love cheeseburgers, so why not make the cheese, cream cheese?

dawn said...

i remember seeing that burger. sounds like fun. i think i would love way more heat than anyone else--maybe because my tastebuds are burned from all the years of eating heat. ha ha

Pam said...

What a tasty burger. I've never thought to use cream cheese before on burgers before.

I wanted to make those today with bison but I forgot to get burger buns. Need to make this very soon!

I am doing a happy dance! You're my first rater. Seeing yours makes me want one again. They were pretty darn good. I'm going to do a mix next time too. Thank you!!!

Joanne said...

I have a feeling, however, that every burger would get four stars with bacon :P Looks delicious.

Chris said...

I dunno, I'm not a big burger fan.

I might have to sigh up for this one, I love burgers.

grace said...

i'm a burger fiend myself, although i typically make the same exact version every time. incidentally, that version includes roasted jalapenos, as well as pepper jack and hot sauce, among other things. i love me some heat. :)
now get crackin' on that breakfast burger post!

I was going to make some burgers tonight but changed my mind last minute. Now I am kinda regret after seeing your delicious burger lol
If you can find mirin, try simmering 2 cups of cooking sake with 1/2 cup of sugar for 10 minutes. The result is quite similar to mirin.

Lucy said...

I would never have thought of adding cream cheese to a burger but love the way it balances the heat. Your juicy burger pictures have me hungry!
