Guacamole Burger with Chipotle Mayo

Last Friday's dinner...

Plain hamburger patty, whole wheat bun, lettuce, tomato, pepperjack cheese, simple guacamole, chipotle mayo...

Simple guacamole - Mash one avocado with 1/2 tablespoon lime juice and some chopped cilantro.

Chipotle Mayo - Mix pureed chipotle peppers in adobo with mayonnaise. Start with just a little and add more to get to your desired level of heat.



Yes, those are Tater Tots! Eddie loooooves them. Also, Bush's Grillin' Beans new Black Bean Fiesta flavor - delicious!

Great idea borrowed from The Other Side of 50: When I open a can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, I puree them in the food processor and then freeze them in an ice cube tray. When frozen, I remove them and place them in a baggie and keep them in the freezer. Each cube contains approximately one tablespoon of chipotle in adobo puree.

The burger looks great! That's a great idea about the chipotles in adobo too...I never buy that ingredient because I think most of it will go to waste. Now I definitely will! My husband will be thrilled :)

Glad to hear that you liked the little tip on freezing the leftover chipotle in adobo!
