Paddlers Inspired Green Chili Burgers

For those days when you need to feed 5 people and don't have $100.00 to drop at Paddlers.

One of our favorite (and one of the few currently open) restaurants on Molokai is Paddlers. It was our first home when we moved here as a young, fun, drunken, childless couple. LOL. 

Now are responsible, home owning, random BAC test passing, parents. 

And now Paddlers is on its 6th manager in the 6 years we've lived here. We've been through many of its ups and downs and honestly right now, it's definitely on an upswing. Really the prices aren't all that. Ad considering the INSANE cost of food here. But still, sometimes you need an at home budget hack. And for those of you who do not live in one of America's regions with an exuberant cost of living-or a Paddlers Bar - this is a great option!

For the burgers:
2lbs hamburger
2 TBS minced garlic
2 TBS BBQ sauce
Salt and pepper to taste

Mix all that together. Form parties and grill 

Green chilis from a can
Pioneer Woman Onion Straws
Chipotle Chili Aioli

1/2 cup mayo
1 tsp garlic powder
1TBS juice from the green chili can
Chipotle powder, salt, and pepper to taste
