1 large yellow onion, sliced into thin rounds
2 TBS butter, ghee, or coconut oil
1 pound ground meat
4 strips of precooked bacon
1 tsp unrefined salt
½ tsp chipotle chili powder
½ tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin powder
1 TBS butter, ghee, or coconut oil for cooking burgers
unrefined sea salt
a few dashes of your favorite hot sauce
lettuce for garnish
TO MAKE CARAMELIZED ONIONS: Melt the ghee, butter, or coconut oil on medium heat. Add onion rounds and saute slowly until golden brown. Push the onions around a bit to make sure they cook evenly. You can add a tablespoon of water if they begin to stick to pan. Mine usually take 20-25 minutes.
Mash together avocado, lime, and salt in a small bowl. Add optional hot sauce for some heat. Set aside.
Combine ground meat, chopped bacon, salt, and spices in a medium bowl. Mix to combine. Form into 9 small patties.
Heat 1 TBS of fat of choice in skillet on medium to medium high heat. Cook patties 4-5 minutes on each side, or until cooked the way you like it.
Serve over a bed of fresh lettuce. Top with caramelized onions and avocado.
