We’re giving classic burgers a Mexican twist with an all-time favorite: homemade, creamy guacamole. Tonight’s version features red onion and jalapeño pepper, which add piquancy and a spicy kick to the rich, cooling topping. (Fresh lime juice also helps bring out the heat of the jalapeño.) On the side, we’re roasting sweet potato and bit more red onion—which mellows in the oven to an enticing sweetness.

Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the buns. Halve the sweet potato lengthwise; cut crosswise into ¼-inch-thick pieces. Peel and halve the onion; small dice 1 half and thinly slice the remaining half. Quarter the lime. Pit, peel and medium dice the avocado; place in a bowl and top with the juice of 1 lime wedge to prevent browning. Remove and discard the stem, ribs and seeds of the pepper; small dice. Thoroughly wash your hands and cutting board immediately after handling the pepper.

Roast the sweet potato & onion:
2 Roast the sweet potato & onion:

Place the sweet potato and sliced onion on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to thoroughly coat. Arrange in an even layer and roast, stirring halfway through, 16 to 18 minutes, or until browned and the sweet potato is tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

3 Make the guacamole:

While the sweet potato and onion roast, in a medium bowl, combine the avocado, the juice of 1 lime wedge, as much of the diced onion as you’d like and as much of the pepper as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be; drizzle with olive oil. Using a fork, mash to your desired consistency; season with salt and pepper to taste.

Form the patties:
4 Form the patties:

While the sweet potato and onion continue to roast, place the ground beef in a medium bowl; season with salt and pepper. Gently mix to incorporate. Using your hands, form the mixture into two ½-inch-thick patties; transfer to a plate.

Cook the patties:
5 Cook the patties:

While the sweet potato and onion continue to roast, in a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the patties; cook 2 to 4 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked to your desired degree of doneness. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate. Loosely cover the cooked patties with aluminum foil and set aside in a warm place.

Toast the buns & plate your dish:
6 Toast the buns & plate your dish:

Add the buns, cut sides down, to the pan of reserved fond. (If the pan seems dry, add 1 teaspoon of olive oil.) Toast on medium-high 1 to 2 minutes, or until lightly browned. Transfer to a clean, dry work surface. Top the toasted bun bottoms with the cooked patties and guacamole (you may have extra guacamole). Complete the burgers with the bun tops. Divide the finished burgers and roasted sweet potato and onion between 2 dishes. Serve with the remaining lime wedges on the side. Enjoy!
