  • To prepare Chili Burgers: In a large bowl, combine beef, pork, chili powder, onion powder, cumin and salt. Mix well. Shape into six 1/2-inch-thick patties.

  • For a charcoal grill, grill patties on the rack of an uncovered grill for 10 to 13 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into side of each patty registers 160 degrees F, turning once halfway through grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place patties on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.)

  • Place each grilled patty on top of two of the pita quarters. Top with roasted peppers and Chimichurri Topping.
