Tomatillo and Pineapple Burgers

We made these a week or so ago. We 'cheated' and used canned salsa verde--the green salsa. This was quite tasty and we will make these again.
Tomatillo and Pineapple Burgers
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
2 tablespoons steak seasoning
8-10 tomatillos, husks removed and rinsed off
3-4 garlic cloves
1 onion, sliced
1 jalapeno pepper, sliced (remove seeds for a less spicy version)
the juice of one lime
1 (8 oz) can Pineapple Tidbits (or crushed pineapple), drained Beth used crushed
1 avocado, sliced
Pepper Jack Cheese slices
Salt and Pepper
Burger Buns

To make the salsa, in the bowl of your food processor, combine tomatillos, garlic, onion, jalapeno, and lime juice and pulse until salsa consistency.  Stir in your pineapple.  Refrigerate until you're ready to eat.
Preheat your outdoor grill or indoor grill pan to medium-high. In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine ground beef with steak seasoning and a little salt and pepper.  Divide ground beef mixture into 4 burger patties. Grill about 6 minutes each side.  Add a slice of cheese on top about a minute before they're done.
To assemble your burgers, take one bun, top with burger patty, sliced avocado and then your tomatillo-pineapple salsa.  Serve open face.
Ok...what if you want to make this even simpler?  All you need to do is buy a jar of tomatillo salsa (it's right there on the salsa's green) and combine that with your crushed pineapple.  Done.  Simple, right?***Beth did this!
