ingredients

Corn salsa

  • 8¾ ounces cooked corns kernels
  • 8¾ ounces cocktail tomatoes
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1¾ ounces raisins
  • 2 - 3 tbsp finely chopped red chilli
  • 3 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro leaves

  • ½ tsp coarse salt

preparation

1. Combine the corn kernels, diced tomatoes and the rest of the ingredients. Cover and refrigerate the salsa for at least 15 min. Season to taste.

2. Heat up a grill pan nice and hot. Combine the ground meat with the cheese and salt. Form the meat into 12 mini-patties (2-3 inches in diameter) and grill for approx. 2 minutes on each side.

3. Slice open the buns and place them cut-side up on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Place a grilled patty on each top bun. Toast the buns and patties in the oven on the top rack.

4. Remove the skin and pits from the avocado and mash it with lime juice.

5. Place a spoonful of mashed avocado on each toasted bottom bun.

6. Layer lettuce, cilantro leaves and a little salsa on top, then top with the burger patty and the top bun.

7. Serve immediately with the rest of the corn salsa.
