Michael Symon's 50/50 Burger

So this was a perfect 10 from all of us, this was so great, and of course easy :).  Michael Symon came up with this recipe in his 5 in 5 cookbook, and it is easy and delicious.  He also suggested using Italian sausage instead, and changing things up just a little, and we will be trying that as well.  Each burger was (gulp) 765 calories the way I made it, and it's worth every calorie :).  Here's what to do:

3/4 lb ground beef (the leaner the better)
3/4 lb chorizo
salt and pepper
sliced Monterey Jack cheese
Cilantro leaves to taste
1 Avocado, sliced
1 Tomato, sliced

Mix the beef and chorizo, and salt well, then form into patties.  In a hot skillet, cook the burgers until well done, flipping after browning well on the first side.  After the burgers are well cooked, top with cheese, let the cheese melt, then place on the bun and serve with the cilantro, avocado and tomato.  (Everyone besides me had mayo as well)  Yummylicious!
