Prep

  1. Chipotles / Shallots / Cilantro (for burgers and guacamole) - (If prepping right before cooking, get grill / oven heating before continuing with prep.) Prep as directed. Combine chipotles and cilantro for burgers in one container. Combine shallots and cilantro for guacamole in another container. (Can be done up to 3 days ahead)
  2. Make burger patties - Mix together beef, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, chipotles, and cilantro (portion for burgers). Form into 1” / 2.5 cm thick patties and make a depression in the center with your thumb (this will help the patties to retain an even thickness as they cook). (Can be done 1 day ahead)
  3. Make guacamole - Mash together avocados, shallots, cilantro (portion for guacamole), and lime juice. Season with some salt. Add some hot sauce (not on ingredients list) if you’d like it to be spicy.

Make

  1. Heat oven according to instructions for fries. (If you sliced your own sweet potatoes, heat oven to 425F / 218C degrees.) Spread sweet potatoes / fries out on a sheet pan. Toss with oil and smoked paprika. (Add some salt if cooking raw sweet potatoes.)
  2. If cooking on a grill: Heat grill to 450F / 232C degrees. Clean grates and brush with some oil.
  3. Transfer sweet potato fries to oven and bake according to package directions. (If cooking raw sweet potatoes, roast for 25 to 30 minutes, shaking the pan halfway through cooking.)
  4. {grill}: While sweet potato fries bake, place burger patties on grill and grill on one side until grill marks appear, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip burgers and continue cooking until cooked to your liking - 2 to 3 minutes more for medium-rare, 3 to 4 minutes more for medium, 5 to 6 minutes more for well-done. Toast hamburger buns.
  5. If cooking on the stovetop: While sweet potato fries bake, heat up a grill pan or skillet over high heat. Brush with some oil. Add burger patties to heated pan and cook on one side until grill marks appear, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip burgers and continue cooking until cooked to your liking - 2 to 3 minutes more for medium-rare, 3 to 4 minutes more for medium, 5 to 6 minutes more for well-done. Toast hamburger buns.
  6. Enjoy burgers topped with guacamole. Serve fries on the side with ketchup for dipping if you’d like.

Burgers were so tasty!

This was an easy and quick recipe to make. The spice mix in the hamburgers tasted good and even added in an extra chipotle pepper, which gave it a good kick. We added tomatoes to our guacamole for some extra juiciness. For cooking, we pan fried the hamburgers and they turned out well. Overall a good meal and solid hamburger option.

Delicious burgers, even reheated. I don't like fries so I just chopped up some vegetables to eat on the side (and dip in the leftover guacamole).

Loved these and came together so quickly! We added some colby jack to the burgers because I can't imagine a burger without cheese :) Loved the guac/chipotle combo - we bought premade because we are lazy and our grocery store has the best pre-made guac. Also made these on bagels and they were so good!

Used bison with some ground beef. I might want to add just a bit more chipotle pepper. Loved the guacamole on it. Sweet potato fries are always good.
