Green Chile Cheeseburger Topping
Green Chile Recipes

On a Green Chile Cheeseburger fresh roasted chiles are as uncommon — and as welcome — as really fine cheese. The topping can be as simple as a whole roasted pod draped across the burger. Or a few plain roasted pods can be chopped and spooned on top. This version is adapted from a recipe we found on the Epicurious web site.

2 cups chopped green chile, thawed and drained
2 tablespoons minced onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
1/3 cup water

In a heavy saucepan cook onion and garlic in oil over moderately low heat, stirring, until soft.

Sprinkle flour over onion mixture and stir with a wooden spoon until combined well.

Trickle in water, stirring constantly, and stir in chiles. Bring mixture to a simmer, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to moderately low and cook mixture, stirring, until thickened, 3 to 4 minutes. Add salt to taste.
