Ground pork and chorizo burgers are so juicy; tomatillo sauce is bright and punchy; pepper jack cheese and tons of fresh cilantro.


  • 1 (4-ounce) Can Chopped Green Chile, drained
  • 3 tbsp. Salsa Verde
  • 2 tbsp. Finely Chopped Onion
  • 1 lb. Ground Pork
  • 1 lb. Mexican Chorizo Sausage, casings removed
  • 2 tsp. Kosher Salt
  • 1 tsp. Black Pepper
  • 4 oz. Monterey Jack cheese, shredded (1 cup)
  • 4 Hamburger Buns, toasted
  • ¼ cup Mayonnaise
  • 1 cup Shredded Iceberg Lettuce
  • 1 cup Rough Chopped Cilantro, leaves and stems



Combine chiles, salsa verde, and onion in small bowl; set aside.


Combine pork and chorizo in separate bowl. Form pork mixture into 8 equal balls, then press into 5-inch patties. Sprinkle patties with salt and pepper.


Grill patties, covered, over hot fire until well browned on first side, about 5 minutes.


Flip patties and top each with 1 tablespoon chili mixture and 2 tablespoons Pepper Jack.


Continue to grill, covered, until cheese is melted and burgers are cooked through, about 5 minutes longer.


Transfer to platter. Let rest for 5 minutes.


Spread 1 tablespoon mayonnaise on each bun top. Place 1 burger on each bun bottom, followed by ¼ cup lettuce and desired amount of cilantro, then the bun top.
