This is test burger #2 for DH’s burger competition practice. We decided to enlist some additional testers and DH made them for our friends who were camping.

For the Guacamole
1 large avocado (pitted & skin removed)
1 cup tomato (finely chopped)
2 green onions finely chopped
1 Tbs cilantro (finely chopped)
1 Tbs lime juice
1 tsp jalapeno pepper (minced, with seeds)
For the Burgers
2 lbs ground chuck
2 Tbs Extra Virgin Olive Oil
3 green onions (minced)
2 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp oregano
2 tsp jalapeno pepper (minced, with seeds)
2 tsp garlic (minced)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground pepper
6 slices cheese
6 hamburger buns
1. Mash the avocado with the other guacamole ingredients and set aside.
2. Mix together burgers and grill to desired doneness.
3. Serve the burgers on buns topped with the guacamole.
The Verdict: The guacamole made these super delicious! The hamburgers were tasty too. Nice and southwestern without too much kick. Oh, a word about the calorie count- there was plenty of guacamole left over for chips so you can subtract a little. These were preferred over the Black Thai burgers, but DH has a couple more he wants to test yet.
