Avocado Burgers


Oh boy, what a week! I was without internet for a whole week and I felt like a fish out of water. You can never know how hooked you are to your internet until you actually are left without it.


As a result, I couldn't post last week :(. But not everything was bad news, I was very productive and took a lot of photos, did a couple of DIY projects, and today's post,which is a burger with avocado and chipotle mayo. YUM!


These burgers are perfect for a 4th of July party. Every time I make these burgers, they never disappoint. The chipotle mayo gives them a nice smoky flavor, so don't skip it! And the fresh avocados just make your burger that much better.



That's it for now! I will be back later this week with a super easy homemade BBQ sauce recipe.

Ingredients: 
(Makes 6 small burgers)

1 1/2 pounds ground beef
salt and freshly ground black pepper
Burger buns, split 
Cheese (your favorite)
I used swiss cheese.
6 tomatos slices
6 lettuce leaves (or other greens)
6 thin slices of red onion

For the Avocado

2 avocados
salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 garlic clove, finely minced
2 tbsp lemon juice

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl. Mash into a chunky consistency.  Set aside.

Heat the grill. Start by drizzling olive oil onto the buns and lightly grill them. Shape the ground beef into 6 patties and season to taste with salt and pepper. Cook the burgers on one side for about 4 minutes then flip and put the cheese on top and cook for 4 more minutes. To assemble the burgers, spread chipotle mayo on both sides of the buns, arrange the lettuce, followed by the tomato, meat, avocado, and onions. Garnish with an olive.
