Green Chile Tostada Burgers


Green chiles can vary greatly in how hot they are. Anaheims are usually mild. The tasty Hatch variety from New Mexico can be quite hot! Canned green chiles are predictably very mild, but not as nice as chiles that you roast and peel yourself.

Heat tostadas in microwave until hot, about 1-2 minutes.

Layer on the green chiles.

Top the green chiles with the reheated beef patties.

Now you have three options as shown in these pictures.
