Servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 slices monetary jack cheese
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • 4 slices tomato
  • 4 pieces of torn romaine lettuce

Avocado salsa-

  • 2 hass avocados peeled, pitted and insides scooped out
  • ½ small onion diced
  • 1 minced and seeded jalapeno pepper
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 3 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • Salt and pepper

Instructions

  • Form the ground beef into 4 patties that are no more than ¾ of an inch thick. Make a depression in the center of each patty. Season on both sides with salt and pepper.
  • In a medium bowl combine avocados, onion, jalapeno pepper, and cilantro. Add lime juice and season with salt and pepper. Mash briefly with a fork until a salsa has formed.
  • Lightly grease the grates of an outdoor grill. Heat the grill to medium-high heat. Add the burgers and cook, turning once until fully cooked (the internal temperature has reached 160 degrees F.). During the last minute of cooking top each burger with a slice of cheese. Cook until cheese has melted.
  • Split the hamburger buns and place cutside down onto the grill until lightly toasted. Top the bottom half of each bun with 1 piece of romaine, 1 slice of tomato, 1 hamburger patty, avocado salsa, and the top bun.
