Post Jalapeño Cheeseburgers with Grilled Avocado

Jalapeño Cheeseburgers with Grilled Avocado

Grill over Direct Medium heat


2 pounds ground chuck (80% lean)
1/4 cup coarsely grated red onion
3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves
2 teaspoons finely grated jalapeño chile pepper (with seeds)
2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 large ripe Hass avocado
Extra virgin olive oil
4 thin slices Monterey Jack cheese
4 hamburger buns
4 leaves of lettuce



In a medium bowl, using your hands, gently combine the ground chuck with the onion, parsley, jalapeño, 1-1/2 teaspoons of kosher salt, the garlic, and pepper. Gently shape the mixture into 4 patties of equal diameter and thickness (about 1 inch thick).

Cut the avocado in half lengthwise, remove the pit, and remove the peel. Lightly brush or spray the avocado on all sides with oil and season with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Grill the avocado halves over Direct Medium heat until lightly marked, 1 to 2 minutes, turning once. Remove from the grill and cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch slices.

Grill the patties over Direct Medium heat until medium, 10 to 12 minutes, turning once. During the last minute of grilling place a slice of cheese on each patty to melt, and grill the hamburger buns, cut side down, until toasted. Assemble the cheeseburgers with lettuce and avocado. Serve warm.

Makes 4 servings
