Process until ingredients are finely minced and mixed thorough. Pour the mixture into a small sauce pan. Add brown sugar and lemon pepper, and stir over medium high heat.

Preheat a gas grill to medium high.
To make the patties, combine the red onion, pineapple, jalapeno pepper, and cilantro in a food processor. Process until ingredients are finely minced and mixed thorough. Pour ingredients in a large bowl. Add ground beef, Mexican cheese, Taco Seasoning, lemon pepper, lime juice, and Parmesan cheese. Mix thoroughly. Form into 6 equal patties, handling lightly to avoid compacting.
When the grill is ready, brush the grill rack with olive oil. Place the patties on the rack cover and cook over medium heat, turning once after 6 to 7 minutes. Cook for 5 minutes.
