Healthy Inspirations Recipe of the Week – Guacamole Stuffed Burgers

imagesServes 8


  • 1 avocado
  • Juice from 1/2 a lime
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 900g ground beef
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped coriander
  • 1 small green capsicum, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt


1.      Heat the grill to medium-high. In a small bowl, mash the avocado with the lime juice, shallot and a pinch of salt. Set aside.

2.      In a large bowl, mix together the meat with the garlic, coriander, capsicum, chili powder, cumin and salt.

3.      Divide the ground meat into 8 even mounds. Split each mound in two and form two thin burger patties, one patty slightly bigger than the other.

4.      Dollop a spoonful of avocado in the middle of the smaller patty, spreading it out slightly but making sure to leave a little rim around the edge of the meat.

5.      Set the larger patty on top and fold/pinch the edges together and shape the burger in your hands to form a tight seal around the guacamole.

6.      Repeat with the remaining burgers.

7.      Grill the burgers 5 to 7 minutes a side or until cooked to your liking.

8.      Serve with hot sauce or salsa on top, alongside a green salad.
