Grilled Southwest Burgers Recipe



  • 1 1/2 pounds ground chuck (I think ground round would also work very well in this recipe)
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro (chopped)
  • 4 teaspoons canned green Chile’s (diced – mild or hot depending on your taste)
  • 4 teaspoons yellow mustard
  • 4 teaspoons taco seasoning
  • 4 large burger buns
  • Sweet onion and tomato for condiments


  1. In a large bowl using your hands mix all the ingredients together until thoroughly combined. Divide the meat mixture into 4 equal parts and form into patties about 1 inch thick.
  2. Preheat grill on high heat, lightly oil the grates, reduce temperature to med-high, and grill burgers to the desired doneness. ( optional – Just before burgers are done place the buns on the grill cut side down to lightly toast them.)
  3. Remove burgers to a platter, tent with aluminum foil, and let rest 5 minutes before serving. Serve with burger and condiments stacked on a bun.
