Step 1

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Step 2

Put the bacon on a sheet pan lined with foil. Bake until crispy, 18 to 20 minutes.

Step 3

Meanwhile, make the cilantro mayo: Mix the mayo with the chopped cilantro and a pinch of salt and pepper in a small bowl. Set aside.

Step 4

Preheat a large cast-iron skillet over medium heat.

Step 5

For the patties, mix the chuck, chorizo, green chiles, a pinch of salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper in a large bowl until combined well. Pinch off a fourth of the meat mixture, forming it into a disc. Repeat with the remaining meat to make 3 more discs. Put 2 tablespoons olive oil in the preheated skillet, then add the patties. Using the bottom of a spatula, smash the patties until they are about 1/2-inch-thick. Fry until cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes per side, then remove to a plate.

Step 6

Meanwhile, start the eggs. Heat the remaining olive oil and the butter in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the eggs and cook sunny-side up, 5 to 6 minutes for a slightly runny yolk. Remove the eggs with a slotted spatula to drain or remove the eggs to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.

Step 7

Spread the bottom of each bun with some of the cilantro mayo and place on plates or a serving dish. Top each with a patty and 2 pieces of bacon. Top each with lettuce, tomato and an egg; drizzle with some hot sauce. Spread the remaining cilantro mayo on the bun lids, then place them carefully on top of the burgers.

Step 8

Serve alongside the Taco Tots.

Step 9

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Step 10

Toss the potato tots and taco seasoning on a sheet pan. Bake until crisp, about 20 minutes. Remove from the oven, sprinkle over the cheese and return to the oven to melt the cheese, 5 minutes more.
