1 can chili with beans
2 hamburger buns
2/3 pound ground chuck
1 7-ounce can whole roasted green chilies*
6 slices blue cheese, crumbled
1/2 medium red onion, diced
 * Ortega brand chilies recommended

1. Heat the chili and set aside.

2. Warm the buns.

3. Shape the meat into two hamburger patties (handle the meat gently – do not knead or squeeze it), and grill to desired doneness.

4. To assemble each chiliburger, place the bottom of a bun on a dinner plate and top with half of the chili. Place a hamburger patty in the center of the chili and top with half of the green chilies, blue cheese, and onion.

5. Complete the sandwich by adding the top bun and serve immediately.
