Hatch Chile Bean Burger

Hatch Chile Bean Burger

This Hatch Green Chile Bean Burger is loaded with flavor and spice. These Burgers are sitting on a couple onion cheese rolls. You can find these freshly made at your local Reasor’s in the bakery department. What I like about these burgers are the flavor and the fresh taste. These are perfect for lunch, dinner, or a large snack…… “Laughing”.

I was pleased when Reasor’s asked me to be a part of their Hatch Chile Fest again this year. I had such a fun time doing it last year and I like posing similar challenges to myself with lengths of time in between to see how my talent has progressed and grown. Last year I made an excellent casserole and this year I wanted to up the ante. Are you one of those people who likes breakfast for dinner? Do you try and cut down your caloric intake in the evening? Well, I wanted to make 3 recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner that you could mix, match, and enjoy. This 24 Hour Hatch fest is great to give you the sweet, spicy, and delicious. All 3 recipes are made with Reasor’s Hatch Peppers they get in every summer. My recipes range from ultra-spicy (lettuce wraps) to sweet and sultry (bean burger). So run to your local Reasor’s, pick up some roasted hatch peppers (yes you can buy them pre-roasted and save yourself some time) and try out one, two, or all three of these recipes and spice up the end of your summer the right way! Thank you again to Reasor’s for partnering with me again this year and thank you for allowing me to be creative year after year.

Hatch Chile Bean Burger


  • 2 cans black beans
  • 1 cup Mushrooms
  • ½ cup Hatch Chile Peppers
  • ½ Sweet onion
  • ½ White onion
  • 2 egg
  • 1 tbsp. Honey
  • 1 tbsp. Chili powder
  • 1 tbsp. Cumin
  • 1 tbsp. Brown Sugar
  • 1 cup Ritz Crackers
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 4 Onion Cheese Rolls (Burger Buns)
  • 1 Tomato
  • 1 La Bonne Vie. Honey Goat Cheese


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  1. Pour black beans into a strainer and rinse off under cold water. Next, pour beans onto a cookie sheet and bake for about 5-8 minutes. This will make the beans get a little crispy and get rid of a lot of the moisture in the beans.
  2. Pull beans out of the oven and pour into a mixing bowl (I use my Kitchen Aid).
  3.  Add onions, Ritz crackers, mushrooms and peppers and place into a small blender. Pulse a couple times to chop finely. Next, add this mixture to the beans bowl.
  4. In a separate bowl add Eggs, Chili powder, Cumin, Paprika, Brown Sugar, Honey, and mix.
  5.  Add Eggs and seasonings into the bean mixture. Blend until the mixture becomes sticky and sticks together.
  6. Form into patties using your hands or a burger press.
  7. Bake these patties for 30-40 minutes. In this recipe I made very thick patties, to which take more time to bake. If your preference is thinner patties, reduce to cook time to 15-20 minutes. The great thing about a bean/veggie burger is you can cook them until your own desired temperature.
  8. Add your toppings on your Onion Cheese Rolls and enjoy!
