Ingredients: 1 1/4 lbs lean ground beef 1/3 cup fine dry bread crumbs 1 1/4 cups tomato juice 1 egg, lightly beaten 1 small yellow onion, finely grated 2 teaspoons chili powder 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano, crumbled 1/2 teaspoon salt 4 teaspoons Worcester sauce 1 small ripe avocado, peeled, pitted and thinly sliced 3/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese 1 can (4 ounce) green chilies, drained and chopped Preparation:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Using a medium sized mixing bowl, combine the

meat, bread crumbs,1/2 cup of the tomato juice, egg, onion, 1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder, oregano, salt and Worcester sauce. Divide the meat mixture into 8 equal sized portions and form each into a patty about 1/2 inch thick. Place 4 patties in a lightly greased baking pan 9" x 9"x2". Place 1/4 of the avocado slices, 1/4 of the shredded cheese and 1 tablespoon of the green chilies on top of each. Top each with a second patty and seal edges. Bake burgers, uncovered, for about 15-20 minutes or until they are only lightly pink on the inside. In a small sauce, combine remaining tomato juice, chili powder and chilies and bring to a boil over medium heat. Lower heat and simmer, uncovered, for about 15 minutes.

Remove Burgers from oven and spoon the sauce over them.
