Clean Eating Chipotle Burgers

We’ve heard raves from our community that this is the best burger they’ve ever eaten, and we think you’ll agree! The creamy avocado topping balances the spice of the chiles in the patties. Cook the patties in a grill pan or in a nonstick skillet if you don’t feel like firing up the grill.

    I do not eat meat…but I think I can use some of the elements of this burger and add it to your yummy quinoa lentil burger
