Combine cream cheese and goat cheese and set aside. Spray grill rack liberally with non-stick spray. Cook meat directly over hot coals with rack in lowest position for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, adjusting rack if meat appears to be cooking too quickly. Remove meat from grill, cover with foil to keep warm. Brush inside of each bread piece with melted butter. Place buttered side down on grill and cook until light grill marks appear. Remove from grill. Spread each bread piece with some of the cheese mixture. Place hamburgers in buns, topping meat with a whole peeled green chili.
