Low-Carb Green Chile Cheeseburger

Shape and fry hamburgers (I use a Green Pan from Belgium), then array them in a baking dish. Spread a light layer of mayonnaise over the burgers. Cover them with chopped green chiles (Hatch or Old El Paso brands). A few shreds of chopped pickle may be added to the chiles. Bake for fifteen minutes. Remove from oven and top with shredded cheese (I used Colby-Jack blend here). Bake again until the cheese atop your green chile cheeseburgers is melted, or browned if you prefer. These green chile burgers are so sumptuous that they are edible without buns, making them a low-carb main dish.

M-J’s Elegant Guacamole

Elegant Gourmet guacamole does not contain raw onions or garlic. Elegant people do not  make their guests into social pariahs with such anti-social ingredients. Instead, M-J’s guacamole is laced with piquant green chile, salt, olive oil and  citrus juice.
