Guacamole Pico Burgers are a spicy twist on the regular cheese burger. They are filled with melted cheese and topped with even more cheese, home-made guacamole, pico de gallo, and crunchy bacon.

  1. Remove your burger from the fridge so it can come down to room temperature.
  2. Slice your cheese into chunks about 1″ x 1″. I usually use Cabot Sharp Cheddar or Cabot Habanero (super spicy and sharp) , but any sharp cheddar, pepper jack or habanero jack will work.
  3. Add the Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, garlic powder, and pepper to the hamburger meat. Squish it together until it is evenly mixed.
  4. Depending on the size of burger you want, divide the meat into 2 or 4 even balls.  Flatten them out with a divot in the middle .
  5. Add a tablespoon or 2 of the cheese to the divots.Then gently cover the cheese with the burger. Don’t squish them down!
  6. Allow the burgers to rest while your butter your buns. Some times I don’t use butter, but left over bacon fat on my buns. It just adds a little extra bacon flavor!
  7. Toast the buns in a skillet over medium high heat for a minute or 2. You don’t want them to burn, so watch them closely.
  8. Place you burgers into the skillet or onto the grill. Let them cook for 4-5 minutes before flipping them over. You only want to flip them once!
  9. After you flip them, allow them too cook for an additional 4-5 minutes per side. 
  10. Just when they are done lay several thin sliced of cheese on top of the burgers. Drizzle a little water on to the pan or into the grill and cover the burgers immediately. The cheese will melt perfectly! 
  11. While the burgers are cooking get out or prep the Guacamole and Pico de Gallo.
  12. Get out your cooked bacon.  I usually have pre-cooked bacon in the fridge for snacking and sandwiches. I cook it in the oven. Check out my Oven Baked Bacon.
  13. Put the bacon on top of your toasted bun.
  14. When the burgers are done place them onto the toasted buns. Top them with  Guacamole  and Pico de Gallo. Lettuce is optional.
  15. Enjoy with extra napkins!
