Prepare Tomatillo Guacamole. Mash avocado with a fork and combine with remaining guacamole ingredients. Cover.
Combine all burger ingredients in a medium bowl. Form into 4 patties. Add 2 teaspoon oil to a hot skillet or grease a grill. Fry or grill until no longer pink inside and a meat thermometer inserted sideways indicates an internal temperature of at least 165°F. (about 4 - 6 minutes per side or longer depending on the thickness of the patties and the temperature of your grill.)
Heat 2 teaspoon oil in a skillet, and add onions and peppers. Sear just until softened, being careful not to overcook.
Assemble burgers. Serve open-faced, topping burgers with Tomatillo Guacamole and seared peppers and onions, or spread guacamole on a bun, add a burger, and top with seared peppers and onions.
