The guacamole is hidden inside these burgers, so comes as a real surprise when you cut into the burger. Serves 8

Ingredients

1 avocado
1/2 lime juice
1 shallot, finely chopped
900g ground beef
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 cup finely chopped coriander
1 small green capsicum, seeded and finely chopped
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp salt

Method

  1. Heat the grill to medium-high. In a small bowl, mash the avocado with the lime juice, shallot and a pinch of salt. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the meat with the garlic, coriander, capsicum, chili powder, cumin and salt.
  3. Divide the ground meat into 8 even mounds. Split each mound in two and form two thin burger patties, one patty slightly bigger than the other.
  4. Dollop a spoonful of avocado in the middle of the smaller patty, spreading it out slightly but making sure to leave a little rim around the edge of the meat.
  5. Set the larger patty on top and fold/pinch the edges together and shape the burger in your hands to form a tight seal around the guacamole.
  6. Repeat with the remaining burgers.
  7. Grill the burgers 5 to 7 minutes a side or until cooked to your liking.
  8. Serve with hot sauce or salsa on top, alongside a green salad.
