  • 1 small yellow onion diced
  • 1 4.5 ounce can Green Chiles or Jalapenos diced
  • Vegetable/Olive oil for sauteing
  • Sea Salt & Fresh Black Pepper
  • 10 ounces Ground Beef 80-85% lean or Ground Turkey
  • 2 sturdy but soft Burger-size Buns I used slider buns
  • 4 ounces Cream Cheese I used reduced fat


  • Saute onion in a small skillet in a tablespoon or so of oil over medium-low heat until translucent. Add chiles, season with salt and pepper and saute for five minutes.
  • Cook the burgers in whatever way you like.
  • Divide and slather the cream cheese evenly over top halves of the buns. Place burgers on bun bottoms and divide the chile mixture evenly between them. Place the tops on.
