If you like your burger spicy and juicy I present you with your new favorite burger! The patty is made with a mixture of beef and pork chorizo. It results in a patty that has a touch of heat and stays tender on the grill. If you been craving some char-grilled burgers, I suggest you give these a try.

- Burger Patties
- 1 pound pork chorizo
- 1 pound ground beef
- 2 teaspoons kosher salt
- Pickled Onions
- 1 tablespoon of sugar
- 1 tablespoon of salt
- ¾ cup of white vinegar
- ¼ cup water
- 1 red onion, thinly sliced
- 2 cups pimento cheese
- 2 poblano peppers
- hamburger buns
- Pickled Onions
- In a small pot combine sugar, salt, vinegar, and water. Heat over medium-high heat and stir until sugar and salt have dissolved. In a small bowl combine pickling liquid and onions, set aside.
- Poblano Peppers
- Place peppers over an open flame, like the gas burner. Char the peppers on all sides until black and blistered, turning as needed. Place peppers in a sealable plastic bag, airtight container or paper bag. Set aside for 15 minutes or until cool enough to handle. Cut peppers into fours lengthwise and remove seeds, set aside.
- In a large bowl combine ground beef, pork chorizo, and salt. Using your hand work to combine the meats. If you have a stand mixer, you can combine them using a stand mixer with paddle attachment. Divide the meat into 8 quarter-pound balls. Flatten a ball in the palm of your hand, shaping the patty till it’s about the size of your palm. Using two fingers shape a dimple in the center of the patty. Place patty on a plate or sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Continue with remaining balls.
- Using a pastry brush, brush grill grates with vegetable oil. Heat grill to medium-high heat. Place patties on the grill cooking 3 - 4 minutes each side, or until desired doneness. Do not press the burgers or anxiously flip them.
- Place patties on the hamburger buns, top with pimento cheese, a slice of roasted poblano, arugula, pickled onions and hamburger bun lid.
