Happy National Cheeseburger Day!

Green Chile Cheeseburger

The Relish Cheeseburger – a little spicy and super MESSY!

Celebrate National Cheeseburger Day with a hot twist: Freshly roasted New Mexico green chile cheeseburgers.

It is peak season for fresh New Mexico green chiles. While most people think of Hatch chiles first, there are many more varieties. Our favorites are found at the Santa Fe Farmers Market, specifically at Matt Romero’s stand where he roasts several types of the spicy peppers every weekend. Can’t make a trip to Santa Fe? No worries. You can roast your own green chiles at home.

Our Green Chile Cheeseburger is simple: fresh ground grass-fed chuck, topped with Monterey Jack cheese and roasted green chile. Smear a little roasted garlic aioli on the grilled bun. Options include tomato and lettuce, caramelized onion and guacamole. Yes it will be messy, but oh, so tasty. Wash it all down with a cold beer.

¡Buen provecho!

Matt Romero, Santa Fe farmer
