Tex Mex Burgers with Guacamole

March 18, 2011

My favorite ethnic food by far, is Mexican. The cheese, the jalapenos, the mariachis... its pretty amazing. So, of course, the idea of a burger inspired by some of my fav Mexican flavors sounded like a great match. The guacamole added to the burger gives it a clean, fresh taste and is a perfect balance to the spiciness and heat of the burger.

1 large tomato

4 onion rolls

1 lb 85/15 ground beef

1/2 sweet onion (chopped)

1 4 oz. can green chiles (hot or mild - whatever you can handle)
