Ingredients

  • Vegetable oil, for grilling
  • 4 Anaheim chiles
  • 1 large white onion, cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 pounds ground pork, formed into 8 thin patties
  • 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack (8 ounces)
  • 8 hamburger buns
  • Toppings, such as mayonnaise and cilantro (optional)

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Heat grill or grill pan to medium-high. Clean and lightly oil hot grill. Brush chiles and onion with oil, then season with salt and pepper. Grill vegetables, turning occasionally, until crisp-tender, 10 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board. Slice chiles, discarding stems and seeds.

  2. Step 2
