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!
Fiesta Chicken Avocado Burger Recipe
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.
- 1 lb ground chicken
- 1 avocado, chopped
- 1 jalapeño pepper, minced
- 1 red pepper, minced
- 1/2 small onion
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- salt and pepper, to taste
- about 1 tbsp butter or olive oil
- Melt butter or olive oil in a pan. Add minced peppers and onions. Saute until soft about 5-7 minutes.
- Add garlic. Saute for another minute more.
- Combine pepper, onions, garlic in a bowl with avocado and chicken.
- Form patties
- Grill or sauté until cooked all the way through.
- Serve with lettuce and tomato.
