  1. To make the Red Guacamole:
  2. Cut the avocados in half. Remove the pit. Rinse the avocados with a bit of cool water or squirt them with lime juice. This will keep them from turning brown.
  3. Score the avocados into a grid with a paring knife. With a large soup spoon, carefully remove the flesh from the skins.
  4. Mash them in a bowl, leaving the avocado a little chunky.
  5. Cut the tomatoes in halves and then into quarters. With the paring knife, cut the pulp out of the tomatoes and discard. If you don’t do this step, your guacamole will be too watery.
  6. Dice up the tomatoes and add to the avocados.
  7. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Taste to adjust seasonings to your liking.
  8. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  9. To make the Green Chile Queso Cheese Sauce:
  10. In a small saucepan, melt the vegan butter over medium heat.
  11. Whisk in the flour and let cook for one minute.
  12. Slowly add room temperature or warm milk into the pan while whisking.
  13. Add the diced tomatoes and the green chiles and mix well.
  14. Add the garlic, paprika, turmeric and mustard powder and mix. Allow the milk to cook a bit until it thickens. Melt in the cheese, stirring until it is all melted and smooth.
  15. Add salt and pepper to taste and hot sauce, if desired.
  16. Taste for any seasoning adjustments.
  17. To make the Beast Burgers:
  18. Heat 1 Tbs. vegetable oil in a skillet or grill pan over medium-high heat.
  19. Add the Beast Burgers and cook for 6-8 minutes until browned on both sides.
  20. To assemble the burgers, lay the open buns on the table.
  21. Place a few leaves of lettuce on the bun bottoms.
  22. Place a Beast Burger on the lettuce.
  23. Top with guacamole and pour the green chile Queso cheese sauce on top.
  24. Place the tops of the buns on top of the burgers and get lots of napkins ready! You're gonna need them.
