Ingredients

For the guacamole:

Directions

Handling the chuck as little as possible, divide it into fourths, shape each fourth into a ball, and with your thumb make a depression in the center or each ball. Fill each depression with a piece of the cheese and 1 teaspoon of the chiles and form the meat around the cheese mixture into a 1-inch patty. Season the hamburgers with salt and black pepper and grill them on oiled hot grill pan for 5 minutes on each side for medium-rare meat.

Make the guacamole while the hamburgers are grilling: Halve, pit, and peel the avocado, in a bowl mash the flesh coarse with a fork, and stir in the lemon juice, tomato, scallion, cumin, cilantro, and salt and pepper, to taste.

Transfer the hamburgers to the buns and top them with the guacamole.
