    tips & techniques
    Prepare & roast the potatoes
    1 Prepare & roast the potatoes

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut the potatoes into 1-inch-wide wedges. Place on a sheet pan; drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat; arrange in an even layer, skin side down. Roast 21 to 23 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

    Prepare the ingredients
    2 Prepare the ingredients

    Meanwhile, peel the onion; cut crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick rounds, keeping the layers intact. Thinly slice the cheese. Halve the buns. Halve the lime crosswise. In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise and the juice of 1 lime half. Season with salt and pepper. In a separate bowl, combine the guacamole and the juice of the remaining lime half.

    Cook the patties & onion rounds
    3 Cook the patties & onion rounds
    In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the patties (you'll omit the breadcrumbs for black bean patties) and 4 onion rounds (you may have extra onion) in an even layer. Cook 4 to 6 minutes, or until lightly browned. Flip the patties and onion (carefully, as the oil may splatter) and top the patties with the sliced cheese. Loosely cover the pan with foil and cook 4 to 6 minutes, or until the onion rounds are softened, the cheese is melted, and the patties are browned and heated through. Transfer to a work surface. Wipe out the pan.
    Toast the buns & serve your dish
    4 Toast the buns & serve your dish

    Add the halved buns, cut side down, to the same pan. Toast on medium-high 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until lightly browned. Transfer to a work surface. Assemble the burgers using the toasted buns, lime guacamole, cooked patties, as much of the cooked onion as you’d like, and as much of the jalapeño pepper as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be. Serve the burgers with the roasted potato wedges and lime mayo on the side. Enjoy!
