Over the Top Burger

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 6 burgers


  • 2 lbs Angus Beef ground
  • Hamburger Buns
  • Cheese we used Colby Jack
  • Sauteed Peppers

For the Guacamole

  • 1 Large Avocado
  • 1/2 Large Mango chopped
  • 1 Teaspoon Orange Juice
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Lime Juice
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

For the Sweet Red Chili Mayo

  • 5 Tablespoons Light Mayonnaise
  • 2 Tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon Sweet Red Chili Sauce *see note
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Garlic Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Lime Juice
  • Zest of 1/2 Lime
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Honey


  • For the Burgers
  • Pat out each burger, making an indentation in the center to avoid a puffy, dry burger and sprinkle with salt and pepper on each side.
  • Get a paper towel and drizzle with canola oil.
  • Holding the paper towel with tongs, wipe down the grill grate and heat to medium high heat.
  • Place the burgers on the grill and walk away. Allow the burgers to cook without pressing down on them or turning until at least 5-6 minutes depending on the size of the burger. See note
  • Flip the burgers and add the cheese, allow to cook for another 4-3 minutes.
  • Remove from the grill and either stack on a platter tented with foil or start assembling your burger.
  • For the guacamole Ok, I like a slightly chunky guacamole and I think it's more authentic than these avocado sauces that I see.
  • So, I remove the pit and scoop out each half into a bowl, add the lime, orange, salt and pepper, and garlic.
  • Use a fork to slightly smash and mix that guacamole and then fold in the mango. *See note
  • For the Mayo
  • Add all of the ingredients into a bowl and stir to combine.
  • To assemble
  • Spread a little (or a lot if you're going for over the top slather that baby), add the burger, sauteed peppers, and guacamole then top with the bun lid.
  • Enjoy!


When cooking burgers it's best to go for high heat, and watch for the juices to hit the top of the burger which is generally after about 5-6 minutes and then flip. The more you flip and touch the burgers the more juice will be lost and a drier burger is the result.
Sweet Red Chili Sauce can be found on the international isle of most markets. It's a red sauce that has a real kick to it.
Guacamole browns quickly, so to avoid a gross guacamole we try to prepare it last, press saran wrap right down on top of it or drizzle a small amount of lemon juice and olive oil over the top.
