Cascade Ice Sparkling Water Giveaway - Inspiration KitchenSo, let’s get to other things I love.  (Tell me, does it end?)  I sure hope not!

What I lovvvve is…  a good burger dip served with a side of salty Au Jus, don’t you?

Blackened Green Chile Stuffed Burger | Inspiration Kitchen It’s not just that they are so simple to make and that there are so few ingredients (although that helps!)…what I love most is, the way the cheese drips and pulls when you bite into the juicy burger as it melts after being sunk in the salty, pipping hot Au Jus.

There is something simply comforting about burger dips that makes my heart sing.  :-)

I’ve made various renditions of this burger over the years and it never fails to please.  As a result, I’ve also learned a lot in the process of how to build a better burger.

Let me just say…  Green chiles are slippery (but very tasty) little buggers!

Blackened Green Chile Stuffed Burger | Inspiration Kitchen So, what I’ve learned is…, first drain the green chiles and slice them down one side to open them up, then pat each side dry with a paper towel before you stuff the burger.

No more slip, slip, slip slidin’ away!

p.s.  You can also use chopped green chiles mixed directly into the burger meat if you want to, but be aware that if you do that, you’ll have a looser burger that you may be sacrificing to your grill at some point in the grilling process!  :-)

Blackened Green Chile Stuffed Burger Dips
 
A flavorful, juicy burger that is simple to make and delicious when served with a side of savory, salty Au Jus.
Author:
Recipe type: Main
Serves: 4
Ingredients
Burger
  • 2 pounds of lean ground beef (7% fat)
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons blackened seasoning spice
  • 1 (7-ounce) can whole green chiles, drained
  • 6 slices provolone cheese (see note)
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • salt, optional
  • pepper, optional
Au Jus
  • 1 package Au Jus mix
Instructions
Au Jus
  1. Mix Au Jus per instructions and set aside until ready to use.
Burger
  1. Mix ground beef with 1 to 2 tablespoons of blackened seasoning spice until thoroughly mixed.
  2. Divide burger into 8 small portions and press into thin (1/4 - ½ inch) patties.
  3. Lay one chile on top of 4 of the burgers. Top with the other patty, so that you have 4 total hamburgers. Seal by pressing the edges together. It's OK if a little bit of the chile hangs out the side! It will get blackened and crispy when grilling!
  4. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper if desired.
  5. Grill burger on each side until nearly done. Top with 1 and ½ slices of provolone cheese for each burger, then grill for 2 minutes more with lid closed until cheese melts.
  6. Remove from grill and let rest 3-5 minutes before serving with buns and Au Jus.
Notes
Cut 2 of the slices of provolone in half and set aside with the other 4 slices. You will top each burger with 1 and ½ slices of cheese. This helps provide extra cheese in the middle of the burger but prevents it all melting off the sides!
