One of my favorite parts of hunting mule deer in New Mexico is driving by the roadside stands selling fire-roasted Hatch green chiles. The small general store, RV supply, post office and restaurant, all-in-one building, near our hunting spot makes the best green-chile cheeseburger on the planet. Maybe it's the beef they use, or the freshly roasted green chiles, or the ancient flat top they cook them on, but I've never had a better burger.

Canned fire-roasted green chile peppers and onions load the casserole with flavor.


2 pounds ground venison

1 large sweet yellow onion, diced

12 ounces canned fire-roasted green chiles (I used 3 4-ounce cans)

1 11-ounce can Campbell's Fiesta Nacho Cheese Soup (or your favorite nacho cheese blend)

1 cup shredded Mexican style cheese mixture

1 tablespoon salt

1 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon ground cumin

½ teaspoon smoked paprika

1 can of Jumbo biscuits

Cooking Instructions

Brown the venison with the diced onions.

Cover the surface with canned biscuits and transfer the pan to a 350-degree oven. Bake for 20 minutes or until the biscuits are done and golden brown. Make certain everyone gets at least one biscuit when serving.

Top the filling with jumbo canned biscuits.
