Ole Ole Chipotle Chicken Fiesta

A smokey, slightly spicy (to some!) chicken burger. The Smashed Avocados cool down the hotness of the chicken burger and Chipotle Mayo. The Queso Fresco Cheese does just what it's name implies- it adds freshness. Now add all this with a bottle of your favorite Sutter Home Wine and experience a mouth fiesta!

Ingredients 

CHIPOTLE MAYO
* 1 cup mayo
* 3 chipotle peppers and 3 tablespoons of sauce from a 12 oz can of Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce (some more will be used in the patties)
SMASHED AVOCADOS
* 4 avocados
* 1/4 cup finely chopped Vidalia onion (about 1/3 of the onion, the rest will be used in the patties)
* 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
* 1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro leaves
* 1/2 ts salt
PATTIES
* 2 lbs ground chicken
* 2 ts Adobo with pepper all purpose seasoning
* 3 chipotle peppers and 3 tb adobo sauce from the can used in the mayo
* 2/3 of the Vidalia onion used in the avocados, very finely chopped in a food processor until juices come out which is approximately 1 cup
*oil for brushing grill rack
* 6 Kaiser sandwich buns
* 1/2 of a 15 oz package of Queso Fresco cheese, crumbled and divided 6 ways
* your favorite Sutter Home wine

Instructions 

Put mayo into a small bowl. Remove 3 chipotle peppers from can and finely chop, using the seeds and discarding the stems if necessary. Add to mayo. Remove 3 tb of the adobo sauce from the can and add to mayo using any onions that may be in the sauce. Mix cover and refrigerate until ready to use. Cut the avocados in half and remove pits. Scoop out pulp into a pie plate. Add onions, jalapeno, cilantro and salt. With a potato masher, smash the avocados until blended leaving some chunks. Stir with a fork to incorporate everything together. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use. To make patties, spread out ground chicken on to a cookie sheet. Sprinkle with Goya all purpose seasoning. Remove 3 chipotle peppers from the can used in mayo and finely chop using the seeds and discarding stems if necessary. Add on top of chicken. Remove 3 tb adobo sauce from can using any onions that are in the sauce and add on top of chicken. Put the 2/3 of the Vidalia onion used in the avocados into a food processor and finely chop until juices come out. It will be mushy and you should have about 1 cup. Add all to chicken. Now mix everything together and while chicken is still on cookie sheet, form into a log. Divide the log in half and then each half into thirds. This helps to make even patties. Form into 6 patties. Leave on pan, cover and refrigerate until ready to grill. Preheat gas grill to med/high. When grill is ready, brush rack with oil. Place patties on the rack, cover and cook, turning once, about 5 to 6 minutes per side. During the last couple minutes of cooking time, place buns, cut side down on outer edges of rack to toast lightly. To assemble chicken burgers, spread Chipotle Mayo on cut sides of buns. Put a chicken burger on each bottom. Top with a dollop of Smashed Avocados, flatten slightly. Add crumbled Queso Freso cheese on top of that and add bun top. Get yourself a glass of wine and fiesta!

This is my first time cooking with ground chicken. I used my recipe for ground beef chipotle burgers and subsituted ground chicken. I was pleased with the results as were all my taste testers. I hope you enjoy these burgers as much as we did!
