Taste Over And Beyond

My husband and I have a taste for yummy burgers.  I once tried a burger (while we were dating) that I had to try again. However I have not had a chance to attempt making it.  However with most recipes it is hard to replicate exact flavors.  Last summer when my dear sister got married last summer my brother and his wife made this delicious burgers...a great substitute for that yummy burger I had so many years ago.  If I trusted my husband more in the kitchen (err, if he were willing to make something more complicated than potatoes, mac and cheese and/or hot dogs) I would have him make these for my birthday (today).

Green Chile Cheeseburgers 
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 T ketchup
1 t chili powder
1 t garlic powder
1 t onion powder
pinch of cayenne pepper

6 chiles, grilled
(I think when I make this I will try and use a can or 2 of whole fire-roasted chiles)

2lbs ground beef
2 T chili powder
1 1/2 t ground cumin
1/4 t black pepper

sharp white cheddar cheese, sliced

Combine mayo, ketchup and seasonings in a bowl.  Set aside.
Knead together beef, chili powder, cumin and pepper.  Shape into patties.(NOTE: original recipe says 4...I am thinking 8)  
Grill patties (4-5minutes on side 1 and 2minutes on the other).  Top with chilies and cheese. Melt.  Place in buns with mayo mixture.
