Hands Down.

Best. Burger. You. Will. Ever. Eat.
Hands Down.

I will post story/recipe tomorrow.
A very special thank you to Lauren, who brought these delicious green chiles back with her from New Mexico. . . without them this burger would've been half as great.

Update: Alright, so I've had green chiles from New Mexico at least twice this week, and it's only Tuesday. I'm sad we don't have New Mexican green chiles up here, because I now believe they are a staple in any decent southwestern, mexican, hell just plain any dish (Lauren and Asher have even made green chile fettuccini)!

These burgers are really simple, I highly suggest giving them a go. If you don't have access to the best green chiles on earth (ie Chiles from New Mexico) I'm sure you can find a nice green even red pepper that will suffice. You're going to want to find something that has a spicy sweetness about it, a pepper that doesn't overwhelm, something you can savor and taste but still has a good kick to it.

Other than that, this recipe is just like any other burger, some sharp cheddar, some crispy salty fried bacon, some veggies and some garlic mayo. Simple really. But I'll post a quasi recipe just in case!

Recipe: The Lauren Burger


Serves 4

1 roasted, peeled, seeded and sliced green chile
1 sliced tomato
1/2 red onion thinly sliced
1 lb. bacon, fried
Sharp Cheddar, enough to smother each burger with
Garlic Mayo (featured elsewhere on the site, just search "garlic mayo", it's all about ratio really)
1 1/2 lbs. all natural ground sirloin
salt and pepper to taste
4 Buns


1. Form meat into burger patties, and season well with salt and pepper.

2. Grill on medium heat until desired doneness. Add cheese a few minutes before burgers are ready to come off the grill.

3. Place on bun, and dress up with your toppings.

4. Savor the amazingness that is this burger!
