Guacamole Hamburgers with Monterey Jack & Chiles

Guacamole Hamburgers with Monterey Jack & Chiles

Serving Size:Serves 4


  • 1 1/2 pounds ground chuck
  • 1 (2 ounces) piece Monterey Jack, cut into 4 pieces
  • 4 teaspoons finely chopped pickled Jalapeño chilies
  • 1 Avocado
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup finely diced seeded tomato
  • 3 Tablespoons minced scallion
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro, or to taste
  • 4 hamburger buns, split and toasted



There's a thousand ways to make a burger, but this one is one our faves.


Handling the chuck as little as possible, divide into fourths, shape each forth into a ball, and with your thumb make a depression in the center of each ball. Fill each depression with a piece of cheese and 1 teaspoon of chilies and form the meat around the cheese mixture into a 1-inch patty. Season the hamburgers with salt and black pepper and grill them on oiled grill pan for 5 minutes on each side for medium-rare meat.

Make guacamole with the burgers are grilling: Halve, pit and peel the avocado, in a bowl mash the flesh coarse with a fork, and stir in the lemon juice, tomatoes, scallion, cumin, cilantro and salt & pepper to taste. Transfer the burgers to the buns and then top them with the guacamole.
