Pinterest is the best.

I often head over to Pinterest when I’m fresh out of dinner ideas.

It was on one of these occasions that I happened upon this tasty-sounding Chicken Avocado Burger Recipe from Laughing Spatulas. They looked so easy to make, healthy and sounded absolutely delicious (my favorite things in a recipe). 

So, I decided put my own spin on them and give them a try.

I really liked that these burgers have avocado in them. W eats most things, but he is shockingly not all that into avocados. They are a great source of healthy fat, so I do like to sneak them into things when I get the chance.

I added some peppers and onions to spice the burgers up a bit (I always like to add more veggies whenever I can). 

Top your burger with lettuce and tomato, serve with some super healthy carrot fries (recipe coming soon) and you have yourself one tasty dinner!

I would really love to grill up these fiesta chicken avocado burgers,  but it’s not the easiest thing in the dead of winter (especially with a big snow storm looming ahead).

Instead, I used this fabulous Cast Iron Grill Pan my husband received from my brother and sister-in-law for Christmas. It worked perfectly and I love the nice grill marks.

You can just as easily use a sauté pan to cook these bad boys up. If you do use a sauté pan, you could probably just use the same pan you sautéed the peppers and onions in to save you some cleaning.
