  1. Really good flavors in this. Next time I will add some no-salt seasoning to the burger mixture. The guacamole has a little salt in it which is perfect for that but the burgers were a little bland even with all the good stuff in them. Hubby was leery about having a burger without his usual - Read more ...
  2. That's a great guacamole recipe you've got going here gigemmandy! (just add the tomatoes to it!) I only added garlic and (red) onion to the ground beef( no lime juice no cilantro) but I think I would add those ingredients next time. And the combination of guacamole with melted Monterey Jack cheese is delicious on - Read more ...
  3. I thought this was okay. I did make some changes. I made my own guacamole. To the meat I added the cilantro jalapeno garlic and an egg. The meat had good flavor however they fell apart on the grill. I also stuffed the burgers with m. jack cheese slices prior to grilling.
  4. I did this two ways. First I had patties so about 10 minutes before putting them on the grill I sqirted them with fresh lime juice and some chili powder. When I grilled them I threw on some minced onion and put cheese on top; the cheese sealed in the onion. All the meat eaters - Read more ...
  5. These were great! Burgers were very juicy. Didn't change a thing.
  6. The guacamole was really tasty but the meat kind of fell apart while cooking & didn t have a lot of flavour. I think these burgers would be much better topped with some salsa & sour cream along with the guacamole.
  7. I halved this recipe as I was just cooking for two. The Guac was awesome. I used turkey ground instead of beef...for a healthier twist and it came out great! (I just used a little extra lime juice because turkey meat is drier) i just eye-balled the cilantro and onions based on what we like - Read more ...
  8. This was a great burger!! I'm glad I read the reviews and saw the mix up in the recipe. With those fixes this was yummy!! My husband LOVES guac. He said this was the best he's ever had. Thanks for waking up a plain old burger. I'm sure will make these again! Thanks!!
  9. WOW!!!! We 1st tried just the burger & knew that was a 5 then we tried with the guacamole topping. These we fantastic. Didn't change a thing but will probably add a dash of salt next time. Plain burgers are out. These are very juicy & flavorful.
