SoCal Guacamole Burger

This Southern California special blends the region's produce-forward approach with Latin flair on a lean sirloin patty. Buttery avocado is the base for a guacamole that's flecked with jalapeño. For crunch, I chose alfalfa sprouts, which continue to proliferate in California stores and are prized for their bright taste and springy, crisp texture. Some locals might have gone bunless, but grains are so of-the-moment. I used a whole-grain bun, natch. -Deb Wise, Recipe Tester and Developer
