Mashed avocado, chile peppers, and onions enliven these moist, lightly spiced hamburgers. They look pan-fried when cooked in a browning skillet.



Halve avocado lengthwise and remove pit; then peel. Slice half the avocado and coat pieces with lemon juice; set aside.

In a bowl, mash remaining avocado half.

Stir in chile peppers, egg, Onion, the 11/2 teaspoons lemon juice, garlic, and salt.

Add Beef and combine thoroughly (mixture will be moist).

With your hands, shape meat into 4 patties, each about 3/4 inch thick.

Microwave a 10-inch browning dish or skillet on HIGH (100%) for 4 1/2 minutes.

Carefully remove dish (the bottom is very hot) to a heat proof surface.

Place patties in dish. Microwave, uncovered, on HIGH (100%) for 3 minutes. Drain off fat.

Turn patties over. Microwave, uncovered, on HIGH (100%) for 2 minutes or until juices run clear when patty is slashed.

Sprinkle each patty with 2 tablespoons of the Cheese. Cover with wax paper and let stand for 5 minutes.

Arrange patties on bottoms of buns and top each patty with lettuce leaves, tomato slice, and a few avocado slices.

Cover with remaining buns.
