Mexican Burger with Guacamole




  • 1 medium ripe avocado
  • 1 small ripe tomato, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh cilantro


  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 tablespoon chili oil
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup grated Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup oil, extra
  • 4 flour tortillas, halved
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • 1 tomato, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup bottled tomato salsa


  1. Cut avocado in half, remove pit. Peel avocado and place flesh in a bowl. Mash well. Add tomato, garlic, onion, juice and cilantro. Mix to combine. Set aside.
  2. Heat combined oils in large pan. Add onion, cook over medium heat for 3-4 minutes or until golden. Remove from heat; cool slightly.
  3. Combine onion, ground beef, chili, cumin, salt and 1/2 cup cheese in medium bowl. Mix with hands until well combined. Divide mixture into 4 portions and shape into round patties; flatten slightly.
  4. Reheat frying pan, adding a little extra oil if necessary. Cook meat patties over medium heat for 3-4 minutes each side or until brown and cooked through.
  5. While patties are cooking, heat extra oil in another pan. Place 1 tablespoon cheese on one half of each piece of tortilla. Fold tortillas over, press down and fry until golden on each side.
  6. Place tortilla halves on serving plates. On 4 of them, place lettuce, tomato, a meat patty, tomato salsa and guacamole.

Yield: 4 servings

The cheese holds the tortillas together while frying.
