  • 2 For the burger patties: Combine all ingredients together in a bowl and mix well. Form into 5 patties. Grill the burgers until done to your liking, or fry them on a skillet.
  • 3 For the slaw: Combine all ingredients and mix it well.
  • 4 Assembly: Put Sriracha and mashed avocado on the bun, top with the patty, red onion, tomato, and any other toppings you like. Top it off with a generous amount of the slaw – you can also serve extra slaw on the side. Enjoy!
