For the Burger

Add pork, chorizo, minced garlic, onion powder, salt, and pepper, and optional flakes in a bowl. Combine thoroughly.

Make 8 thin patties using the pork & chorizo burger mixture.

Place 1.5” cube of Artikaas Chilikaas cheese in the center of one of the patties and top with another patty. Pinch the seal the burger and reshape if needed. Make sure the burger is sealed tightly to avoid the cheese from escaping on the grill.

Preheat grill to 400 degrees. Once heated up place burgers on clean grates and cook for 6-7 minutes per side. Always check the internal temperature of the pork which is recommended at 160 degrees.

For the Assembly

Assemble burgers using cooked patty, a dollop of guacamole, a forkful of pickled onions, topped with a few tortilla chips for crunch.
