Green Chile Bison Burger

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/chile_bison_burger.html

From EatingWell:  May/June 2011

Take a trip to the Southwest with this juicy green-chile cheeseburger made with rich-tasting ground bison. You could make these with freshly roasted green chiles, but canned green chiles, which you can find near other Mexican food in most supermarkets, keep this recipe a snap to make when you’re in a hurry. Serve with a sliced tomato salad.

4 servings | Active Time: 40 minutes | Total Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high (or see Stovetop Variation).
  2. Place onion in a small bowl and cover with cold water.
  3. Place bison (or beef), 1 can drained chiles, 1/4 cup cheese, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Gently combine without overmixing. Form into 4 patties, about 3/4 inch thick.
  4. Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Grill the burgers, turning once, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 155°F (165°F for beef), 4 to 5 minutes per side. Top each burger with an equal portion of the remaining green chiles and sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup cheese. Cook until the cheese is melted, about 1 minute more.
  5. Drain the onion. Assemble the burgers on toasted buns with onion and shredded lettuce.
