2 green tomatoes, diced

Juice of 2 limes

1 tablespoon sugar

Kosher salt

1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

1/2 small red onion, diced

1 red jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped

4 ears of corn, husked and halved

2 teaspoons vegetable oil, plus more for the grill

Freshly ground pepper

1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef

4 sesame hamburger buns

1/2 cup prepared guacamole


  1. Preheat a grill to medium high. Make the salsa: Combine the tomatoes, lime juice, sugar and 1 teaspoon salt in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave 2 minutes, then stir in the cilantro, red onion and jalapeno; set aside.
  2. Toss the corn with the vegetable oil in a large bowl; season with salt and pepper. Form the beef into four 1-inch-thick patties; season with salt and pepper. Lightly brush the grill grates with vegetable oil. Grill the corn, turning occasionally, until marked and tender, about8 minutes. Meanwhile, grill the burgers about 4 minutes per side for medium rare. Toast the buns on the grill.
  3. Sandwich the burgers on the buns with the guacamole and salsa. Serve with the corn.
