  5. Add the add the cilantro, salt and pepper. Stir again.
  6. Add the lime juice. Stir vigorously to get everything well combined and to achieve a nice fairly smooth consistency. Set aside.
  7. As the onion continues to caramelize, cook the burger. Heat a skillet on medium high with oil spray. When the skillet is good and hot, add the burger to the skillet. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt. Lower heat to medium.
  8. Cook burger 5 to 6 minutes on one side, then flip to cook another 5 to 6 minutes. Add the cheese, cook another minute or two until the cheese has melted. It is recommended to serve ground beef medium to medium well done.
