Neens from Ono Yum
Neens grew up in the island-style communities of San Diego. Far from Hawaii, but close to plate lunch, surfing and ukulele jammin, Neens is the creator of the Musubi Map and the I Love Poke Festival, both vehicles that reflect his passion for all things Hawaiian. He was raised on local-style home cooking thanks to his Mom, Gles, also known as the Filipina Betty Crocker. This recipe is one of Neens’ favorite dishes that he grew up eating, courtesy of his Mom. Thanks, Mom!
Recipe Details

2 pounds Lean Ground Beef

1/2 Lime, juiced

1 tablespoon garlic minced

1/2 cup Onion, diced

1/2 cup cilantro, chopped

1 teaspoon chili powder

7 ounce package Wholly Guacamole

6 slices Monterey Jack Cheese

1 package KING'S HAWAIIAN Original Hawaiian Sweet Hamburger Buns

Step 1
Set barbecue grill to medium heat.
Step 2
In a bowl, mix together beef, the juice of half a lime, 1 tablespoon garlic, 1/2 cup diced onion, cilantro, and chili powder. Make 4 patties.
Step 3
Grill burgers, flipping once, until cooked to desired doneness. During the last minute of cooking, top burgers with cheese (optional); let melt. (See below for instructions on “cheese teeth.”)
Step 4
Toast KING'S HAWAIIAN Original Hawaiian Sweet Rolls if desired. Assemble burger using desired amount of guacamole. Lettuce, tomato, grilled onions, etc. are always an option.
Step 5
Step 6
To make teeth or fangs, start by cutting cheese slices into triangular pieces. Lay the cheese over the hamburger patty with the sides hanging over. If you like more cheese, make more teeth!
Step 7
For the monster’s eyes, cut limes and cherry tomatoes in half. (Key limes work best because they are smaller.) Secure cherry tomato in the middle of the lime with half of a toothpick. Then secure lime and tomatoes into the top bun with toothpicks, placing the eyes in the front center portion of the bun.
Step 8
To make jalapeño horns, cut the stem off of a jalapeño pepper and then cut in half, longways. Use toothpicks to secure the pepper “horns” onto the top bun, placing them just behind and outside of the eyes.
