3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
1 teaspoon ground cumin

If desired, place rolls, cut side down, on grill to toast lightly during last 1 to 2 minutes of grilling. Place burgers between rolls; top burgers with Guacamole. Serve with lettuce and tomatoes.
