Guacamole Burgers Recipe

Classic bacon cheeseburgers are taken to a whole new level with zippy green chilies and melted Monterey Jack. A dollop of guacamole adds a delicious twist. Patricia Collins of Imbler, Oregon shares the recipe.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 8 bacon strips
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 4 slices Monterey Jack cheese
  • 4 sandwich buns, split and toasted
  • 1/4 cup guacamole

Directions

  • 1. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove to paper towels to drain. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine onion and green chilies; set aside. Shape beef into eight patties. Top half of patties with onion mixture. Cover with remaining patties and firmly press edges to seal.
  • 2. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 160° and juices run clear. Top each with bacon and cheese. Grill 1 minute longer or until cheese is melted. Serve on buns with guacamole. Yield: 4 servings.
