Grilled Chipotle & Cilantro Burgers

Grilled Burger Recipe
It's grillin time!!!!  Time to dust off the ole barbecue and cook in the fresh outdoors. March in Utah still can give us a snow shower or two (or three), so eating outside is a no-go most of the time, but who says we can't put on a warm parka and cook?  This is an easy flavorful, spicy and moist burger recipe that's perfect for early spring. Just a few simple ingredients to make this a mouthwatering and delicious moist burger.

Burger Ingredients
1 1/2 lb lean ground beef
3/4 cup fresh cilantro
2 Tablespoons chopped chipotle peppers in Adobo sauce (or more if you are feeling wild!)
1 large garlic clove, chopped
salt and pepper to taste

Avocado Salsa Ingredients
1 avocado, chopped
1 roma tomato, chopped
1/2 yellow onion, chopped
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
juice of 1 lime
salt and pepper to taste

So easy... Mix up the cilantro and the chipotle with the beef forming into three firm patties. Cook on a heated outdoor grill 5-7 minutes per side on medium heat. My hubby gave them a quick sear on a higher heat first, then turned it down to medium and cooked them. This sealed in the juices for extra fresh flavor. We had them on a whole wheat sandwich thin with avocado salsa and veggie chips.

Check out the fresh cilantro inside the burger. Use as much or as little as you want. I did not chop the cilantro because I wanted "Big Flavor" in each bite. Hubby isn't too fond of super spicy food so I kept my chipotle at the 2 tablespoons (I would have added an extra if I was just cooking for me).
