Knock Your Boots Off Tex-Mex Burgers

 2 pounds ground 93% lean beef, portioned in 8 ounce servings
2 teaspoons Tex-Mex seasoning (or your favorite, Mrs Dash SW Chipotle Seasoning is fantastic, remember to add salt)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup Guacamole (or your favorite store bought, I love Wholly Guacamole Pico de Gallo Guacamole here)
1 cup Pico de Gallo (or your favorite fresh salsa)
4 large hamburger buns
butter, room temperature

Preheat your grill to high.  These burgers are fantastic on any grill from stove top to charcoal and everywhere in between.

Form beef into 1/2" patties, making a slight indentation in the center of the burger to prevent it from doming up in the center.  The indentation will rise as your burger cooks.  Sprinkle each patty with 1/2 teaspoon Tex-Mex seasoning.  Gently rub seasoning into meat.

Grill until golden brown and slightly charred (about 5 minutes), turning once (cook for 4 minutes on the other side for medium). Avoid pressing with a spatula, you don't want the juices to escape! Add cheese for the last minute of cooking.

Butter buns and place on grill (inside down) for about 1 minute, until they are golden brown with grill marks.  Remove buns and prepare with 1/4 cup guacamole on the bottom bun.  Place burger on top and 1/4 cup pico de gallo on top.  Serve with Grilled Sweet Potato Fries!
