As you can tell, I’ve been on a bit of a burger kick lately. I love burgers, don’t get me wrong, but for some reason, I don’t make them all that often. I was brainstorming burger ideas when I thought of a sandwich I get at a local store that has chicken, bacon, avocado, and chipotle aioli. Of course, I always get it sans aioli, since you know my distaste for mayo. I decided to swap out the grilled chicken breast for a burger and the avocado for some guacamole and voila!
This burger was quite tasty and pretty healthy. Yes, there is bacon on it, but just one slice per burger. Guacamole/avocado is full of good fats, and I used chicken breast for the patties, so they were nice and lean.
