Roasting your own green chiles for this recipe takes a little bit of extra time, but adds a fresh and smoky flavor to these burgers. Or, to save time, you can use whole fire roasted green chiles from a can too.
Grilled onion rounds add a special touch, along with melted sharp cheddar cheese (although Monterey Jack cheese would be just as tasty!).
We like to add a binding ingredient like bread crumbs (or a gluten free flour) when cooking chicken burgers on the grill, to help hold everything together, although you can usually skip this ingredient if cooking burgers on the stove in a skillet.
Another tip: to keep the meat mixture from sticking to your hands while forming patties, rub a little olive oil on your hands first.
