Whoa, that’s a mouth full.
A delicious mouth full.
Really, that title should actually read Roasted Garlic Chipotle Cheddar Sweet Potato Quinoa Burgers with Avocado Ranch……
The cutest burger ever.
So let’s talk about how I am obsessed with the chipotle, cheddar, sweet potato, avocado flavors. I have been feeding them to my family at least once a week since I made these Healthy Chipotle Chicken Sweet Potato Skins. These flavors pretty much blow my mind. I love the sweet and spicy combo.
Pretty much though I just love anything in involving chipotle chiles and avocado.
Roasting garlic is my new favorite thing. It caramelizes the delicious cloves and makes them so sweet. It is pretty much just amazing. It also mellows out the intense flavor garlic leaves behind, which my dad was very happy about.
I pretty much get scolded every time I use garlic (especially raw), which is EVERYDAY (but I don’t always caught). Garlic breath, he hates it! All I have to say is I am keeping the cancer away. Far, far, far away! That normally shuts him up.
Oh, and the Avocado Ranch.
You HAVE to make the Avocado Ranch. It goes with this burger like butter goes with bread. It is a million times better than the bottled stuff you buy in the store with things like mayo (eww, I am totally grossed out by this condiment) and sugars and other bad things in it. It is totally easy to make and trust me once you make it once you will be making it over and over again.
Use on a salad, use to dip vegetables, use it to dip your buffalo chicken in and use it for the burger!
It is a MUST. No question.
The Cheddar? Yeah, that is just on there because we like cheese. ALOT. If you want to make this burger vegan you can opt out of the cheese and swap the egg for a flax egg (or other vegan egg substitutes).
So when you’re making the patties you are probably going to think the mixture is too wet, it’s not. Just do the best you can to shape them and make sure you get both sides really nice and crispy. Seriously, you want them crispy.
Oh and I almost forgot to tell you how good these burgers are atop a salad, covered in the Avocado Ranch. It is a very versatile burger!
Ok, so one last time. Roast some garlic, mash it with some sweet potatoes, quinoa, chipotle and then form them into patties. Get those patties all nice and crispy and then slather on the Avocado Ranch. And please, don’t skimp on the Avocado Ranch.
Now that’s a whole lot of Burger.
