So in my previous post I mentioned that on Sunday night my friend and I grilled up some guacamole stuffed burgers. Well I thought I’d post just exactly how I made them!
1 lbs. ground beef
1 small avocado
1 small tomato or half a medium tomato, diced
2 tablespoons of your favorite salsa
1/2 tsp. cumin
A few shakes of chili flakes
salt and pepper to taste
First, mash up your avocado in a bowl. Add the diced tomato, salsa, and spices. Mix everything well.
Divide your ground beef into 3 portions. Take the first portion and divide into two balls. Flatten out each ball into 2 patties. Create a small indention in one of the patties that will hold the filling. Take a big spoonful of your avocado mixture (guacamole!) and place it on the patty in the middle. Take that second patty and place it on top, pinch the sides together so that the guacamole is stuffed inside between the two of them. Be gentle and just work your best to get the burger to hold together with the stuffing inside. Repeat with the other 2 portions. You may not use all the guacamole which is fine, use the remainder as a topping (instead of ketchup!).
Get your grill going or find your grill master friend and grill those bad boys up! I’m not going to lie, I have no idea how to grill. So yeah… 🙂
I ate mine between two crunchy lettuce leaves with some mustard and more of the guacamole on top.
