  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.
