  • 3 pounds ground beef

  • 3 onions, minced, divided

  • 1 ½ cups bread crumbs

  • 1 pound shredded pepperjack cheese

  • 4 eggs

  • 2 tomatoes, chopped and juices strained

  • 2 bunches cilantro, chopped

  • 1 serrano chile pepper, minced, divided

  • 3 limes, juiced, divided

  • 5 avocados, peeled and pitted

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 12 hamburger buns

  • 1 head iceberg lettuce, cored and shredded


  1. Mix ground beef, half the onions, bread crumbs, pepperjack cheese, and eggs in a bowl; form into 12 patties.

  2. Combine tomatoes, half the remaining onion, cilantro, half the serrano chile pepper, and half the lime juice; mix well to make pico de gallo. Cover and chill in refrigerator.

  3. Mash avocados, remaining onions, remaining serrano chile pepper, and remaining lime juice together in a bowl to make guacamole. Season with salt and pepper.

  4. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat; pan-fry burger patties to desired doneness, 3 to 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

  5. Assemble each sandwich by placing a burger in each bun; top burger with guacamole, shredded lettuce, and pico de gallo.

Cook's Note:

The pico de gallo can be made and chilled up to one day in advance.
