Auntie's "Two Napkin" Fiesta Burger

You'll need at least two napkins to eat this burger, one for your face and one for your lap. I like to serve this burger sliced in half so it can be handled like a taco. For less mess added presentation, wrap the bottom half of each half burger burger in parchment paper. Either way you serve it remember to have those extra napkins on hand:-)


Avocado Dressing:
1 cup of sour cream
1 California avocado smashed
1 Tsp of fresh squeezed lime juice
1 Tsp of fresh cilantro (chopped)
Kosher Salt
Fresh ground black pepper
2 lbs of ground round
1 Tbsp of finely chopped Jalapeño
1/2 Tsp of garlic powder
1 Tbsp of cumin
1 Tbsp of chili powder
1 Tsp of kosher salt
1 Tsp of ground black pepper
Colivata Extra Virgin Olive oil, for brushing on the grill rack
6 large Keiser buns (slided)
6 slices of Monterey Jack cheese
3 cups chopped Ice burg lettuce
3 Roma tomatoes seeded and diced  Hot Sauce (or desired hot sauce)


To make the dressing, combine sour cream, smashed Avocado, lime juice, cilantro and mix well, add salt and pepper to taste. Chill until ready to use. Preheat a gas grill to medium-high. To make the patties, combine the ground round, jalapeño, garlic powder, cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Mix well then divide the mixture into 6 equal portions and form the portions into round patties. Once the grill reaches the desired heat, brush the grill rack evenly with olive oil then place the patties on the rack, cover, and cook about 7 minutes on each side until it reaches the desired doneness (Medium-well.) During the last minute or so of cooking time, lower the temperate of the grill to Medium-Low and place a slice of Monterey Jack cheese on each burger, place the buns on the grill cut side down and cover the grill. Continue cooking approximately 1 minute or until cheese has melted and buns are lightly toasted. To assemble the burgers, spread an even amount of the avocado dressing to the cut side of each bun bottom and top, sprinkle an even amount of chopped lettuce, about ½ cup to the bottom buns, place the patties on top of the lettuce (cheese side up), add a single layer of the chopped tomato on top of the cheese and to finish it off add a couple dashes of hot sauce to taste. Add the bread tops, slice burger in half and serve. Makes 6 burgers


My niece Rachel helped me develop this recipe. She calls me auntie and we went through a ton of napkins, thus the name Auntie's "Two Napkin" Fiesta Burger.
