The first recipe that caught my attention was German Chocolate Cake Brownies but I already have half a dozen sweets planned for this month I decided to go in a savory direction. When I saw Jenna’s post for Green Chile Cheeseburgers I knew I had a winner.
There isn’t much I like better than a good homemade burger. Add in diced green chiles and pepper Jack cheese and I’m in heaven. These burgers turned out amazing. I did have to leave out the cilantro since it tastes weird to me and I added in garlic powder because it’s in all my burgers.
Thanks Jenna, for a winner.
