Guacamole Cilantro Lime Burgers

2 avocados - halved, peeled, and pitted
1/2 lime, juiced
1 fresh jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced
1/2 cup diced tomatoes
1/4 cup minced onion
1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon salt to taste

2 pounds lean ground beef
1 lime, juiced
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 cup diced onion
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
6 slices Monterey Jack cheese
6 hamburger buns


Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat.
To make the guacamole, mash the avocado in a medium bowl with the juice of half a lime, jalapeno, tomatoes, 1/4 cup onion, and 1 1/2 teaspoons of minced garlic; season to taste with salt, and set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together beef, the juice of a lime, 1 tablespoon garlic, chili powder, 1/2 cup diced onion, and cilantro. Form the meat into 6 patties.
Cook the burgers to desired doneness on the preheated grill. Add a slice of cheese to each burger during the last minute of cooking. Serve on toasted buns with a dollop of guacamole.(Sour cream or salsa makes it even better)

(This is also delicious with sauteed mushrooms on them!!!!)
