"These are savory, spicy burgers that are made even tastier with spicy mayo, avocado slices, a fried egg and pico de gallo. Add cheese if you like, or maybe even bacon. I'm sure these would taste great if cooked on a grill, but I pan-fry them."

Put the first 10 ingredients (cumin through onion) in a food processor and puree. Add half of the ground beef, and pulse to combine everything well.
Put the rest of the ground beef and one tablespoon of cilantro in a large bowl. Add the beef-spice mixture and stir to combine well. Form this mixture into four burger patties.
Mix the remaining cilantro with mayo, hot sauce, and lime juice. Add salt & pepper if desired- I usually don't. Set aside.
Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook patties, flipping once, for about 12-15 minutes, or until desired doneness.
Just before the meat is done, melt butter in a separate pan, then crack the eggs into it and cook until whites are firm and yolks are runny, about 3-5 minutes.
Spread the mayo on both inner sides of the buns, then place down avocado slices, meat, fried egg, and pico de gallo. Serve!
