Happy Monday Ya’ll.
Guess what stinks?
Today is a holiday in BC and everyone is out and about enjoying the long weekend, and I have to WORK. That’s right, work.
That’s me expressing my displeasure with this situation I am currently in.
Mr. Delish went away for a boys weekend because, like everyone else in this province, he has today off.
Maybe I’ll try mention that I have to work one more time before I’m finished this post….
Anyways, I was playing single girl all weekend. And by single girl I don’t mean putting on a short dress, going out clubbing and being social. I mean wearing my hair in a sky high messy bun, not showering, watching a million re-runs of Girls, eating things that are not meant to be meals as meals, not doing laundry and floating in a pool all day long.
Although I was attempting to avoid eating anything that resembled a meal, I still could have gone for one of these burgers.
These are messy as heck too. The cheese and the avocado and mayo mix together to drip down your forearms while you’re eating.
But you’re not going to care…
Because they are just so darn good.
Now I am off to try make the house look like a messy, nail polish hoarding, hermit wasn’t staying there for the weekend.
Wish me luck!
Green Chili Cheeseburgers:
1 lb regular ground beef
salt and freshly ground pepper
1 tin (4.5 ounces) diced green chilies, drain off excess liquid
4 thick slices sharp cheddar cheese
4 hamburger buns, split
1 avocado, mashed until smooth
Cilantro Lime Mayo (recipe below)
Lettuce, tomato and red onion for toppings
Form the ground beef into 4 equal sized patties, season on both sides with salt and pepper.
Heat a griddle or BBQ and cook the burgers on the first side until the juices start settling on the top side. Flip and allow to cook for about 2 minutes and then spoon on 1/4 of the green chilies and top with a slice of cheddar cheese, repeat with the other burgers. Continue cooking for another 5-6 minutes until cooked through and the juices run clear.
Remove the burgers to a plate to rest.
Toast the buns on the hot grill or griddle and then spread one side of the bun with some of the mashed avocado and the other side of the bun with some of the cilantro lime mayo. Put the hamburger on the bottom bun and then top with the lettuce, tomato and red onion and top bun.
Cilantro Lime Mayo:
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tbsp lime juice
2 tbsp chopped cilantro
salt and pepper to taste
In a small bowl, mix together the mayo, lime juice and cilantro, season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover and refrigerate for an hour before using.
