From the Test Kitchen

Tonight’s burgers celebrate Tex-Mex cuisine, known for weaving together Mexican and American ingredients into hearty dishes. To make a vibrant, creamy topping for our patties, we’re mashing avocado with lime juice and pickled jalapeño. On the side, a summery salad of fresh corn and tomatoes, simply dressed with a bit of lime juice and olive oil, lends a refreshing, bright accent to the burgers.

Prepare the ingredients & mash the avocado:
1 Prepare the ingredients & mash the avocado:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Remove and discard the corn husks and silks. Cut the corn kernels off the cob; discard the cob. Quarter the tomatoes; place in a large bowl and season with salt and pepper. Cut off and discard the root end of the scallion; thinly slice, separating the white bottom and green top. Halve the buns. Quarter the lime. Roughly chop the pepper. Pit, peel, and medium dice the avocado; place in a bowl with the juice of 3 lime wedges and as much of the pepper as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Using a fork, mash to your desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Thoroughly wash your hands and cutting board after handling the pepper.

Cook the corn:
2 Cook the corn:

In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the corn; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until lightly browned and slightly softened. Transfer to the bowl of seasoned tomatoes; stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Add the patties and cook 3 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.
