  • 2 teaspoons allspice
  • 2 teaspoons ginger
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons cocoa powder

Pineapple Guacamole:

  • 2 very ripe avocados, pits and shells removed
  • 1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh pineapple chunks, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon sugar (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

 To Serve:

To Make the Burgers:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F then line a baking tray with foil and spray lightly with olive oil. Combine serrano, garlic, onion, and bell pepper in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat and add mixture to pan. Cook for 6-7 minutes until softened then add orange and lime juice, soy, and vinegar to pan. Cook until mostly evaporated then remove from heat and scrape contents back into processor. Add jerk seasoning, brown sugar, salt, and beans then pulse until nearly smooth. Scrape into a large bowl and add millet and breadcrumbs, then mix well. Form mixture into eight patties and place on prepared tray.
  2. Bake in oven for about 12 minutes on each side then remove from oven and allow them to cool for about 10 minutes to set up or they will fall apart.
  3. If desired, heat 2 more tablespoons of olive oil in same skillet and cook each patty for about 1 minute per side until nice and golden brown.

To Make the Pineapple Guacamole:

  1. Smash avocados with a fork and mix with other ingredients in a medium bowl. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
  2. Toast buns if desired and assemble burgers by placing patties on buns and topping with guacamole, peppers, cilantro, and any other toppings you like.

Finally making these tonight - they\'ve been on my list forever! I calculated how to make only exactly as much of the jerk seasoning as you need - 1/4 tsp of everything except 1/2 tsp of cinnamon and 1 tsp of cocoa powder.
