Step 1
Mash flesh of avocados and fold in red onion, jalapeno, chopped garlic, papri-ka, chili powder, and lime juice until well-combined. Season with salt and pep-per. Cover and set aside in refrigerator.
Step 2
Season ground beef with salt and pepper. Combine seasoned beef with crushed garlic, sriracha hot sauce, Worcestshire sauce, paprika, and onion powder. Divide ground beef into eight patties, roughly equal size.
Step 3
Light grill to medium-high heat. When to desired heat, place patties on grill and cook for 5-6 minutes, then turn. Cook for another 2-3 minutes depending on desired doneness. Top each patty with a slice of cheese during the last mi-nute of cooking to melt. Make 4 stacks of two patties and remove from grill.
Step 4
Place KING’S HAWAIIAN Hamburger Buns onto grill, inside of bun facing down to toast for at least 30 seconds. Watch closely to make sure it doesn’t burn.
Step 5
Remove KING’S HAWAIIAN Hamburger Buns and assemble with mustard on the bottom bun to hold the lettuce then top with tomato slices and pickles. Next, place a burger stack on top of each bottom bun and top with a generous help-ing of guacamole and two bacon slices. Add the top bun and enjoy!

Use barbecue skewers through the middle of assembled burger to help keep it together.
