You’ll need 8 ounces ground pork chorizo and 1 pound ground beef.

Cook the chorizo until it is done, drain.

Combine the cooked chorizo in a mixing bowl with the ground beef, 1 teaspoon chili powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt.

Mix together and form into 4 patties.

In a large skillet, heat 2 teaspoons olive oil over medium-high heat.

Add in 2 fresh whole poblano chiles, cored, seeded, and sliced and 1 sliced onion and saute until tender, about  7-10 minutes.

On a grill set to medium-high heat, grill the burgers until desired doneness is achieved. About 2 minutes per side for medium rare.

When you flip the burgers, top each with a slice of monterey jack cheese a heaping pile of the onion/poblano mixture, and then another piece of monterey jack.
