Sunday Supper: Chicken and Avocado Burger

April 14, 2013

Chicken and avocado burgers will transport you to the beautiful beaches of Mexico.  Homemade chicken patties are flavored with cumin, chili powder, and lime juice.  Each patty is topped with avocado, cilantro, and a creamy tomato salsa.  Instead of French fries, serve these chicken and avocado burgers with fried yucca root or plantain chips.
