Grilled Cheese Green Chile Burger-Where’s the Beef?

Where’s the beef?  Remember that line from the old Wendy’s commercials on tv?  Everybody was saying it.  I’m not really sure what that was referring to.  But I think it was the little lady who said it that caught our attention.  Anyway – I liked beef then and I like it now.  I just don’t eat it very often.  Not nearly as often as chicken and certainly more than fish.

Savannah picked beef as our topic for Saturday Dishes this week, so I dutifully followed her suggestion and made a Grilled Cheese Green Chile Burger on Grilled Toast.  If I’m gonna make it beef it might as well have every other flavor I enjoy too.  Now this can be made with ground turkey or chicken and still have all the flavors.  Not me, oh no!  Beef it will be and it was good!  Not the most original beef dish, but my favorite!  What’s yours?

I got a new Le Creuset Red Skinny Grill for my birthday.  I love this.  It is just the right size for a small serving.  The wind was blowing at 50+mph when I made these, so no way would I do them on the outside grill.  It worked great.

Then add the toppings and you’re ready to eat.  Steak fries would be good too.(In my dreams!)  Ok, so you can’t see the beef too well because I like all the toppings just as well as the beef.  Green chiles and avocado especially.   I don’t care for too much lettuce on my burgers unless it is finely shredded and on top of a Whataburger.

Come on over to Saturday dishes and share your favorite beef dish.
