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.

I wouldn’t have thought to put guacamole on a burger patty and it was so worth it! We loved it. We did add cheese (I did Swiss, cheddar on the rest) because we can’t have burgers without cheese. The only change I’d do next time ( because there will be a next time) is to add another veggie on the side. Maybe kale chips, burnt broccoli or sautéed green beans. Loved the sweet potato fries and did them in the air fryer. They are always a hit with my kids which I love as a healthy side they’ll gobble up!

Made this without chipotle or adobo sauce. Still delicious. My family of 3 (one a 5yo) ate 6 portobellos- “double” burgers. Sweet potato fries were good and time efficient, but not healthy. Made our normal guacamole- avocado with lime and salt, plus added cilantro.

Very tasty burger. Loved the addition of chipotle and cilantro to the burger. Didn't have Worcestershire so used coconut aminos instead.

Kids still won’t eat homemade burgers but all the adults thought these were very tasty. I subbed the Chipotle’s for some salsa. Cause we are spice wimps.
