Green Chili Cheeseburgers


In June our little family ventured off on a fun filled family vacation. We ate at all kinds of great little places, and even a few "NOT so great" little places (we won't mention those). One adorable little place that we ate was in Silverton Colorado, up high in the mountains. We rode the train from Durango Colorado up along side of the Anise River until the train stopped and let us off in Silverton. There are only 532 people that live in this small town but its full of ton's of great little "mom and pop" type eating places.

We walked around trying to decide which one looked the best and then tried to figure out what we were all craving. We decided on this cute little cafe called "Grumpy's"....BUT it was anything but "grumpy". We walked in and past a little old man playing the piano, a picture right out of an old western movie. We were seated and given a menu. Everything looked so good...and smelled good too. We all ordered a sandwich...they had about anything you could ever want in the "burger category". I got a Cheeseburger with green chili's, Halle got a Jalapeno' burger (Halle and I split ours with each other because we both wanted "both of the burgers", and just couldn't decide on which one...so we shared!) Cameron and Kimber both got bacon burgers and Deron got a French Dip. Who would have thought that we would come away from this little cafe feeling like we had just had the best meal on the entire trip...and it was a BURGER no less?! When we returned home from our trip, I vowed that I was going to do my best to mimic that burger that I had eaten at Grumpy's...and after a little thought and playing around, I think I did a pretty good job. Wether it's a copy cat recipe or not...I LOVED eating IT again either way! If you ever get to Silverton Colorado...make your way to Grumpy's....UNTIL then, try my burger...its pretty darn good if I do say so myself!

Green Chili-n-Chipotle Cheese Burger

Grilled Burgers (could cook in a pan too, but I prefer grilled)
Cheddar Cheese (I used this new kind that I found.
Its pre-sliced "Chipotle Cheddar", it was amazing!!!!)
1 small can of chopped green chili's
your favorite hamburger buns (I used the "Whole Wheat Sandwich Flats"...very good! But the
regular buns are just as good!)
avocado, sliced

Prepare hamburger, melt cheese on top. Add green chili's...as many as you like (I put a spoonful on mine). Place sliced avocado on burger and add any condiments that you would like on top of that. It's awesome and a great way to "Spice UP" your BBQ.

Happy Cooking~
