fresh jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced
1 1/2 teaspoons

lean ground beef
Monterey Jack cheese
That's a great guacamole recipe you've got going here, gigemmandy! (just add the tomatoes to it!)
I only added garlic and (red) onion to the ground beef( no lime juice, no cilantro) but I think I would add those ingredients next time. And the combination of guacamole with melted Monterey Jack cheese is delicious on a burger... who knew? My Mom loved hers, and I can't wait to try these on hubby when he gets back into town. By the way, this recipe was chosen as one of the weekly dishes for our cooking club on 9/3 and it went over really well. Thanks for the recipe!
The guacamole was really tasty but the meat kind of fell apart while cooking & didn’t have a lot of flavour. I think these burgers would be much better topped with some salsa & sour cream along with the guacamole.
These were great! Burgers were very juicy. Didn't change a thing.
I halved this recipe, as I was just cooking for two. The Guac was awesome. I used turkey ground instead of beef...for a healthier twist and it came out great! (I just used a little extra lime juice because turkey meat is drier) i just eye-balled the cilantro and onions based on what we like and it came out great. My boyfriend said if I was a chef at Dos Cominos (a popular NYC Mexican restaurant) I could charge $20 for a half portion of the guac. IT WAS GREAT!
WOW!!!! We 1st tried just the burger & knew that was a 5, then we tried with the guacamole topping. These we fantastic. Didn't change a thing, but will probably add a dash of salt next time. Plain burgers are out. These are very juicy & flavorful.
I thought this was okay. I did make some changes. I made my own guacamole. To the meat I added the cilantro, jalapeno, garlic and an egg. The meat had good flavor however they fell apart on the grill. I also stuffed the burgers with m. jack cheese slices prior to grilling.
I did this two ways. First, I had patties, so about 10 minutes before putting them on the grill I sqirted them with fresh lime juice and some chili powder. When I grilled them, I threw on some minced onion and put cheese on top; the cheese sealed in the onion. All the meat eaters could say was...NADA! They were too busy chewing like crazy! I'm a vegetarian, so I did the same with a veggie grillers and it was SO good! Thanks for a great recipe all around!
This was a great burger!! I'm glad I read the reviews and saw the mix up in the recipe. With those fixes this was yummy!! My husband LOVES guac. He said this was the best he's ever had. Thanks for waking up a plain old burger. I'm sure will make these again! Thanks!!
