INGREDIENTS

  • For the Guacamole:
  • 2 ripe Avocados from Mexico, halved, pitted, peeled and mashed
  • 1 small red, ripe tomato, diced
  • 1/2 cup cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt ¬†Juice of one lime
  • 1 jalapeno, stem and seeds removed, finely diced (optional)
  • For the Burgers:
  • 2 pounds ground sirloin, formed into four patties
  • 1 teaspoon steak seasoning
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • 4 1-ounce slices cheddar cheese
  • Green leaf lettuce
  • 2 ripe, red tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 small onion, peeled and thinly sliced

PREPARATION

Prepare the guacamole:

    • In a medium mixing bowl, combine the avocado, tomato, cilantro, lime juice, salt and jalapeno. Stir to combine and then set aside while preparing the burgers.

Prepare the burgers:

  • Season each patty with steak seasoning on both sides before cooking. You can use a skillet, grill pan, or a grill over high heat to cook your burgers to desired degree of doneness.
  • When the burgers are almost finished cooking, toast the buns in a toaster oven, a dry skillet, or on the grill.
  • Assemble the burgers by layering the bottom half of each bun with leaves of lettuce, a burger patty, a slice of cheese, slices of onion, and slices of tomato. Top with a generous scoop of guacamole, and cover with bun.
