Spicy Guacamole Burgers

A&W has Spicy Guacamole Teen Burgers now. And they’re delicious. They also come in at over 600 calories before you get a root beer or French fries. I figured out that I could make my own, and maybe cut down on some of the calories.

According to myfitnesspal.com, these clock in at around 325 calories. It will obviously be more if you put cheese and whatnot on them. I like lettuce, tomato, and Dijon mustard. My 3-year-old likes ketchup. And where I was also making them for the boys, I made some for them first without the hot spices, and then added them for ours.

Spicy Guacamole Burger

Serves 6

In a bowl, mix together 1lb of lean ground beef, 1 clove of garlic, 1tsp of smoked paprika, 1tsp of cumin, 2 tbsp of cilantro, and a bit of salt and pepper. Mix together and form into six patties. While the burgers are cooking, you can mash together 1 ripe avocado, 1tbsp cilantro, 1tbsp lemon or lime juice, 1 clove of garlic, 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, and a pinch of salt.

Throw it onto a whole wheat hamburger bun, and you’re good to go!

We had them with sweet potato fries. I bake them with a bit of salt, garlic powder, and oil at 425.
