Chipotle Guacamole Burgers {Favorites}
with mixed green salad with grapes and adobo dressing

Active: 25 min Total: 30 min
I think when you put guacamole on something, it's bound to become a favorite, right? These burgers were originally featured over the summer and even though my grill is closed for the season, this will be just as delicious on a grill pan. Last time around, we enjoyed this burger with a fig salad on the side. Alas, fig season is pretty much over but grapes will be a good fall substitute. Make sure to round this meal out with a spicy wine - you deserve it!
