"This is a great, easy burger recipe. The ground beef is combined with green chile peppers and beef bouillon. This makes them very moist and flavorful. Serve on hamburger buns with your favorite fixings." — MOLSON7

1 (4 ounce) can
diced green chilies, drained
beef bouillon granules
Monterey Jack cheese
When I went to make this recipe, I discovered I was out of beef boullion, so I substituted an envelope of onion soup mix. These were wonderful!! They came out very moist and with lots of flavor. I'm not normally a big hamburger fan, but with this recipe I'll be making them more often. Thanks for sharing!
Sorry, I made these exactly as written and was very disappointed. I should have added garlic etc like others suggested. I could barely taste the peppers or the bouillon. Maybe I should have used Monterey Pepper Jack cheese instead of just plain Monterey Jack.I will not be making these again.
Don't be fooled by the name. These are far from "Firecracker" but if you know green chile peppers, you know that from reading the recipe. I didn't have boullion on hand, so I used beef soup mix. These were incredibly juicy. Loved 'em. If you want spicy burgers try Firecracker Burgers submitted by McCormack or Cajun Burgers submitted by Gail. I think I will add boullion to all my burger recipes from now on! Great idea!
Some of the best burgers we've had - I think its the boullion. I'm going to use that every time now. We did add some chopped onion, and some worchestshire sauce too. Everybody raved.
I actually changed this by adding the spices from the McCormick Firecracker Burgers recipe, basically combined the 2 recipes. The burgers turned out awesome, the chili and everything gave it great flavor. I did mine on a Foreman Grill as a matter of convenience. Definitely a keeper. Thanks!
It doesn't GET any easier than this! And you get moist, juicy, TASTY burgers every time. (Even the hubby says he doesn't need any condiments whenever I make this recipe!) Some helpful hints...I actually use my hands when mixing---the ingredients seem to get more evenly-distributed this way. Also, I cut back on the green chile peppers (I use a little less than the whole can) so that our 5 year-old can enjoy them along with us. (Too spicy for him the first time I tried the recipe). Thank you Gail, for this quick and simple yet flavorful recipe!
I thought these were really good - very moist and flavorful, however we used canned chiles and they werent very spicy - but did help with the moistness. I'll switch the canned chiles for the same amount of canned jalepenos next time. These are really good though (wish I had a grill...)
I added about 1/2 a lb of pork sausage to the ground beef and sprinkled some garlic powder, salt and pepper in the mixture. The chile peppers added a nice flavor and the bouillon cube gaves these a little "beefy" flavor. My 17 month really liked it. I served these on wheat hamburger rolls with provolone cheese and sliced tomatoes. Quick and tasty. Thanks for sharing.
