Mexican Hamburgers

Okay, so here is Erin's request for my tasty Mexican Hamburgers.  The green chile is versatile...either use it in this recipe, on top of scrambled eggs and potatoes, or just in a big bowl with a warm tortilla.  Perfect for anytime!

You'll need the following:
green chile (a nice big potfull, recipe below)
tortillas (1 per person)
hamburgers (1 - 1 1/2 per person)
refried beans (1/2 c. per person)
cheese (as desired)
lettuce/tomato/onion garnish (optional)

Green Chile Recipe
1-2 Tbsp. oil
1-2 lbs. diced pork
1 Tbsp. minced garlic
1/2 c. flour
1/4 c. chicken bouillon
1 can (12-16 oz.) chili-ready tomotoes
1 package frozen green chile mild or hot (or desired amount of fresh)
4-6 c. water

1. Heat pan to medium-high.  When hot, add oil for a minute, then add in diced pork (carefully, since oil may splatter).  Brown for about 5-10 minutes.  Stir in garlic and cook for about 1 minute.  Add in flour and stir well, for about 1 more minute.  Now add remaining ingredients, bringing to boil.  Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for about 45 mins.

2. Cook thoroughly desired amount of frozen hamburgers (or fresh), approx. 1-1 1/2 per Mexican hamburger.

3. Have beans warm and ready.

4. Warm up tortillas, then place on plate.  Spread a serving of beans on half the tortilla.  Sprinkle on some cheese, then top with a cooked hamburger pattie.  Fold over tortilla.  Add generous amount of green chile and cheese, and any other desired garnish.  Serve and enjoy! :)
