How to Make Mexican Burgers with Avocado Spread


  1. In a large bowl, combine ground beef, panko, onion, jalapeño peppers, chipotle pepper, cilantro, cumin, freshly black pepper and cheese. Divide mixture into 4 equal portions and form 4 patties. Place them in a plate, cover with plastic wrap and transfer to the refrigerator for 1 hour.
  2. The stuffed version: mix all the ingredients except cheese and form 6 balls but 3 bigger than the others. Create a well in the center of the biggest ones and add 2 tbsp. cheese per. Place the smaller patties on top and seal. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  3. In a small bowl, scoop avocado and add lime juice; mashed with a fork until smooth. Add sour cream, garlic, hot sauce and freshly ground black pepper; stir until well blended. Transfer spread to the refrigerator until ready to serve.
  4. Preheated BBQ. Grill burger at 500ºF for 7 minutes per side. If desired, about 3 minutes before the end of cooking, place 3 thin slices of cheese per burger. Spread avocado mixture to top buns and garnish to liking.
