In a medium bowl, GENTLY combine avocados, red onion, cilantro, tomato, Worcestershire Sauce, Tabasco Sauce, Chipotle peppers, sour cream and lime juice. Season with salt. * Can increase heat by increasing Tabasco Sauce.
When the grill is ready, brush the grill racks with vegetable oil. Place the patties on the grill, cover and cook, turning once, until the patties are done to preference. For medium, this will be approximately 5-7 minutes per side.During the last few minutes of grilling, place the rolls on the outer edge of the grill to lightly toast.
To assemble the sandwich, place a patty on the bottom half of the roll. Top the patty with a generous amount of guacamole and place the top half of the roll. ENJOY!
