I absolutely LOVED this recipe! So easy and quick to make, which was perfect because I was starving after playing tennis this evening. The sauce is genius! It looks like it is unhealthy, but i swear it isn’t! It is so simple and truly tastes like nacho cheese! This recipe has the perfect amount of spicy and sweet. I will definitely be making this again :)

Ingredients

For the Mexi burgers–
  • 1 lb buffalo (or grass-fed ground beef)
  • 1 (6oz) can of green chiles
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon chipotle red pepper (or chili powder)

For the toppings–

  • 1 package mushrooms
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 14oz jar of roasted peppers, sliced
  • 2-3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon chipotle red pepper or chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • salt and pepper, to taste

For the Yummy Avocado Roasted Red Pepper sauce–

  • 2 avocados
  • 1/2 14oz jar of roasted peppers, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced

Instructions

  1. )  Add a bit of coconut oil along with your sliced onions to a sauce pan or a skillet. Let the onions caramelize, stirring them so they don’t burn.
  2. ) In another skillet, add your coconut oil, mushrooms, roasted peppers and spices and let those cook down as the onions are caramelizing.
  3. ) Make your burger patties. Grab a large bowl, add the meat, spices, and green chiles and mix thoroughly. Once the burgers are formed, add them to a large greased skillet or grill. Cook for about 5-6 minutes on each side until cooked through.
  4. ) While the burgers are cooking, make your avocado sauce. It is to die for!!! Add all ingredients for the sauce to your food processor and puree until smooth.
  5. ) Once your toppings are cooked, your burgers are cooked to a juicy perfection, and your sauce is silky silky smooth, stack it all up. Burger, sauce, toppings, then some sliced avocado on top. YUM YUM YUM!
