The ABC Burger: Avocado Bacon and Chipotle

1 67
I had a hankering for a burger and wanted to create something different. Meet the ABC Burger; a quarter pound of organic lean beef, pan seared to perfection (my preference is medium rare). The bottom bun is slathered with  chipotle sauce, topped with baby arugula and the burger (with our without cheese). The burger is then topped with alternate slices of avocado and bacon and a little more chipotle sauce.  On top of that, a juicy slice of tomato. Cap this with the top bun that was slathered with a hot salsa sauce. Soooo good, I couldn’t wait to take a bit as witnessed in this shot!  : )Avocado_Bacon_Chipote_Burgers2.jpgThe ABC Burger: Avocado, Bacon and Chipotle
Serves 4


  • 2 lbs of lean Ground Beef
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
  • (optional) Pepper Jack cheese slices
  • 8 strips of bacon (2 per burger)
  • 1 avocados (cut in slices – 1/4 avocado per burger)
  • 4 large tomato slices
  • baby arugula
  • Medium or Hot Salsa Sauce (your favorite brand) – I like Rosa’s Mexicana Tomato Chipotle Sauce
  • Chipotle Sauce – I like this one from Terrapin Ridge Farms
  • 4 hard-rolls (ie: portuguese rolls), toasted


  1. Place the ground beef in a bowl, add salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce. Gently mix together until well blended, and shape into 4 beef patties.
  2. In a large skillet cook the bacon until crisp, drain on paper towels, and set aside.
  3. In the same hot skillet, using the bacon grease, cook the 4 burgers to your liking.
  4. If you are using cheese, top the burgers with cheese slices, cover the skillet and cook until the cheese melts.
  5. Lightly toast your Burger buns

    I gave up burgers a long time ago. Had I known burgers like this exist, I’m not so sure I would have given them up. It looks delicious and I’m sure it tastes even better. Another thing I love about it is that you used beef. Thanks for this recipe.
