Green Chili Burgers and Portabella Fries

First, if you don’t think this video is cute your soul is made of ice…get help.  Second, I really hate that Stella Artois commercial with Adrien Brody.  Third, southwest green chili burgers with portabella fries make for a really good dinner.

Southwest Green Chili Burgers (
1 ½ pounds chuck beef
½ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
4 teaspoons canned chopped green chilies, drained
4 slices havarti cheese
1 (4.2 oz) southwest ranch salad kit
1 (8 oz) bag shredded lettuce
4 potato hamburger buns

Preheat grill on medium high.  Divide meat, form 4 patties and season with salt and pepper.  Grill 3 to 4 minutes on each side.  During last minute of cook time, top each patty with 1 teaspoon chilies and 1 cheese slice.  Combine salad dressing and chips (from salad kit) with lettuce shreds.  Top burgers with lettuce mixture and serve!

3 tablespoons canola oil, divided
12 oz sliced portabella mushrooms
2 eggs
1 ¼ cups Italian bread crumbs
¼ cup Parmesan cheese
Large zip-top bag

Preheat oven to 425 and drizzle 1 tablepoon oil evenly over baking sheet.  Discard stems and gills (dark brown layers) from mushrooms.  Whisk eggs until frothy, place in shallow bowl.  Combine bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese in large zip-top bag.  Place 3-4 mushrooms into eggs, turning to coat both sides.  Toss mushrooms with bread crumbs until evenly coated;  place in single layer on baking sheet.  Repeat with remaining mushrooms.  Drizzle 2 tablespoons oil and bake for 10 minutes.  Turn mushrooms; bake another 5-7 more minutes or until mushrooms are tender and golden.
