The Ultimate Spicy Burger With Hatch Chiles

The ultimate spicy burger has it all. I’m talking a quarter pound of ground chuck, crispy applewood smoked bacon, roasted hatch Chiles, gooey American cheese, and a tangy sauce dripping down the brioche bun to finish it off in mouthwatering style.

Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Servings 4


  • 1 lb ground chuck
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 slices American cheese
  • salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste
  • 4 hatch chiles

spicy sauce

  • 1.5 teaspoon ketchup
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1.5 teaspoon honey mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1.5 teaspoon jalapeno brine
  • 1 teaspoon Apple cider vinegar
  • 8 slices applewood smoked bacon
  • 4 brioche buns Or potato


  1. Put the oven to broiler mode. Spread hatch Chiles onto a baking sheet. Then broil for about 4 minutes on each side, until the skins are charred. Then turn the oven off and let it steam for 5 minutes. Then allow to cool.

  2. Wear gloves to slice the Chiles as they’re spicy! Slice and scrape out seeds then chop. Note that the more seeds you leave the spicier they will be.

  3. Then make your sauce by simply whisking all the ingredients together in a bowl. Chill until ready to serve.

  4. To make burgers, divide ground beef into 4 patties. Smash them into thin patties. Then rub a bit of olive oil and Salt and pepper on each side. Grill to desired doneness.

  5. *grill the bacon or bake it in the oven.

  6. When your burgers are ready, put on sliced cheese and allow it to begin melting.

  7. Use brioche buns or potato buns. Put a burger patty in a bun. Then sprinkle on Chiles. Put a couple slices of bacon. Then drizzle on spicy sauce. Serve with any additional toppings you love!
