This is the honest truth - I asked DH to pick some numbers at random using the index binder of recipes made since the late 80's that received a "Very Good" rating. This is the recipe that came up. Originally made 4-21-10 and it was so good that we made it again 5-30-10, and apparently forgot all about it.

Mexican Burgers

1 lb. ground beef
1 egg
1/2 cup fine-chopped cilantro
1 jalapeno, finely chopped
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. tequila, optional
1/4 tsp. ground red pepper
1/4 tsp. fresh-ground black pepper

8 slices sourdough bread
1 tomato, sliced
1 avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced

1. Preheat a gas or charcoal grill to medium heat. Combine ingredients and make 4 patties.
2. Grill patties 4 minutes; turn. Grill to desired doneness, about 4 minutes for medium. Toast bread lightly on grill, if desired.
3. Place 2 toast slices on each of four plates; top one of the slices on each plate with a burger. Top burger with tomato and avocado slices,

So, I'd leave them open faced, add a fried egg on top, and add some hatch green chilies and serve with pinto or refried beans on the side. That's a huevos rancheros burger. lol I guess I can't leave well enough alone.

This was last nights dinner. DH used Kobe beef. He gave it a "delicious" rating, I gave it a "good" rating. I did like the avocado in it, but of course did not have the jalapeno. lol. Did not have fresh Cilantro, used Cilantro paste. Had it on French Hamburger Buns.
