Let ground beef stand at room temperature for 10 minutes before grilling.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat grill to 350° to 400° (medium-high) heat. Combine first 4 ingredients gently. Stir minced jalapeño peppers into meat mixture. Shape mixture into 6 (5-inch) patties.

Step 2

Grill, covered with grill lid, 4 to 5 minutes on each side or until beef is no longer pink in center. Grill pineapple slices over medium-high heat 1 to 2 minutes on each side. Serve burgers on Homemade Hamburger Buns. Top each burger with Cilantro-Jalapeño Cream, grilled pineapple, avocado slices, and a fresh cilantro sprig.

These are amazing! I'm sure the homemade buns would be delicious, but the store-bought work just as well. Although they have jalapeños, you can control the spice based on how well you clean out the peppers.

I made these burgers for my supper club on a panini press/electric grill and they were delicious and easy! The condiments (cilantro lime cream sauce, pineapple, and avocado) really completed the burger. I opted for good store-bought rolls as buns - no need to make your own as suggested in the recipe!
