Can you believe that two months ago I had never had an avocado? Yup. I said it. I admit it. I just didn’t know what to do with them or how to eat them or what not. I never grew up eating them and sometimes we just never leave that safe little circle of childhood do we? Sometimes I wish I could go back to that safe little circle in general. To have things taken care of, not have to worry, Mom and Dad protect you. I never appreciated it back then and when I have enough smarts to appreciate it I’m not there anymore! Now I’m a Mom and I’m supposed to be keeping my two little chicks safe in that bubble. Eeeekkkkkkkk.

Since I’m trying to get all the whole eating better badwagon avocados have kind of became a staple in my diet. Imagine that! They give that creamy texture to many recipes that I crave and used to come from cream cheese or something of the like. Now I’m getting it from eating some greens that are good for me! Speaking of eating healthier, I just went and dug out my box of “I keep these clothes because I can’t admit that I don’t fit in them anymore” and guess what?! THEY FIT! Jumping up and down! My hubs told me they were loose. I smiled and went uh huh… Sweetie you don’t have to say that I’m just excited they fit! Always trying to boost my self-esteem. Gotta love that man!

Here’s the deal. When I’m eating “healthier” I don’t really want to feel like I’m eating healthy. Kind of backwards right? You know what I mean though. I’m not a bunny and I don’t want to eat bunny food, well I mean some of it but not all of it. I love that during the summer I can fire that grill up and make delicious, healthy food. The thing I enjoy about these Chicken Avocado Burgers is that I don’t need to wait until summer if I want to enjoy them! You can use a grill pan on your stovetop or a broiling pan in your oven to cook these babies up. Or if you are just lazy and don’t want to drag everything outside I totally understand. Plus, some of you live where it’s 100+ degrees in the summer and slaving over a grill doesn’t sound like much fun either! Whatever the case is just go make these delicious burgers!

      I love that the avocado is inside of the burger patty. I bet it makes it so moist and fabulous 🙂 And I love the idea of a chipotle yogurt sauce… I wanna dip my fries and onion rings in that!

    • Cyndi - My Kitchen Craze


      I love avocados, but I was in the same boat as you. I didn’t eat them regularly and didn’t know what or how to eat them. I saw all these recipes all the time and thought why I didn’t think of that. These burgers look delicious!! Need to fire up the grill and make these before it gets to hot. And YAY for fitting in your old clothes. So exciting. I need to get there. 🙂

    • Carol at Wild Goose Mama


      Wow, NOW this is a chicken burger. Double Wow!!!
      I love the sauce. My favorite salad dressing is a chipotle one. I have been craving avocados of late too.

    • Kelly - Life Made Sweeter


      This looks like the ultimate burger! Love the avocado in here and it sounds incredible with the chipotle yogurt sauce!

    • Julianne @ Beyond Frosting


      This burger has all of my favorite things!

    • Thao @ In Good Flavor


      Welcome to the avocado world! I love eating it all by itself, but it is so good with everything too. This chicken burger looks delicious and one that I can feel good about.

    • Aimee


      These were delicious! I made them for dinner, and both my husband and I really enjoyed them. The sauce was simple but had a spicy kick to it.

    • Katie


      Where do I find these chipotles in a grocery store? I’m having trouble.

    • Sara


      Would these do well on the grill? I’m afraid they might break apart if they’re not on a solid flat surface

      • Julie Evink


        Yes I think they would be hard to grill!

    • Kathi @ laughingspatula


      Mmmmmmm, these look familiar….

    • Mary Schrader


      Does the nutritional facts include the bun? They look great…
