  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sace
  • 1 tsp freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tsp chili powder

Preheat BBQ to medium (approx 350º F) by starting both burners on a med-low setting.

Mix together beef, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce and spices in a large bowl.  Form the mixture into 8 large patties, each about 3/4 inch thick.

Place patties on BBQ.  Close lid.  Cook each side 5-10 minutes or until center is well cooked (meat thermometer should read 170°F).  If you want cheeseburgers, place a slice of cheese on top of each hamburger for the last 3 minutes of cooking.  For the last 2-3 minutes of cooking toast the bun, cut side down on the grill.

Slice tomatoes and onion and rinse lettuce leaves.

To make quick guacamole – Mash the ripe avocado in a small bowl using a fork.  Stir in 1/4 cup salsa.

Serve hamburgers on the buns with your choice of fixings.
