mexican hamburger

2 beef hamburgers
2 ripe Haas avocado's
1 lime
1 tomato, finely diced
3 spring onions, finely sliced
pickled jalapeño chillies, to taste
small bunch coriander, finely chopped
75 g rocket
pita breads or hamburger buns, to serve

Begin by making the guacamole. Halve the avocado's, remove the stones and scoop the flesh into a bowl. Mash coarsely with a fork and add the juice from the lime.

Add the finely diced tomato and sliced spring onions. Chop the jalapeño and add to the guacamole - you can make it as mild or as spicy as you like. Season with salt and pepper. Lastly add the chopped coriander. Place the avocado stones into the guacamole and cover with plastic wrap. This helps prevent the avocado from discolouring.

Heat a griddle pan over medium heat. Drizzle the hamburgers with a little olive oil and grill until cooked through, about 10-12 minutes. The cooking time depends on the size your hamburgers. If they happen to be quite thick, a good tip is to flatten them with the palm of your hand before you cook them.

Remove the burgers from the pan, wipe out some of the excess fat with paper towel. Slice open the pita or hamburger buns and toast lightly.

Dress the rocket with a drizzle of olive oil, salt and pepper and discard the avocado stones from the guacamole. Fill each pita or bun with a handful of rocket, top with the burgers and spoon a generous amount of guacamole on top.
