Southwest BBQ Chicken Burger

Greetings my lovely readers!  I've been watching the NBA playoffs lately so I was inspired to make BBQ food.  For purposes of this post, I inquired of my husband as to whether San Antonio would be considered Southwest, so as to avoid a misnomer, such as the alleged mixed berry ice pop controversy.   He replied that I would have to check the location of San Antonio in a map of Texas.  I decided not to do it because no matter what San Antonio is far South and far West of where I am now. Southwest it is. 
Now for announcements...


1. I recently created a facebook page, where I will be sending updates and links to recipes.  You can like my facebook page here.
2. I just added a recipe index to the site.  woot woot!
3. I have a very special guest post coming up for you tomorrow, as well as my own post on Thursday. 
4. Google Reader is ending on July 1 (I don't know why they are getting rid of such a popular service).  For a similar experience, you can follow my blog on bloglovin' or a similar website.
5. Also, I've changed the website address - you can now access it at (but don't worry if you forget it - the site redirects!).

Check out the recipe after the jump.

Note: I got the idea behind this burger (BBQ + Chicken + avocado) from a cookbook but the it's actually a totally different recipe.  Hope you enjoy it!

Southwestern BBQ Chicken Burger (inspired by Grilled BBQ Chicken Sandwiches with Spicy Avocado Spread from Cooking Light Fresh Food Fast)

  • Adobo seasoning
  • 4 ground chicken patties (or ground chicken breast pieces)
  • 1 Tbsp EVOO

  • Monterrey or Pepper Jack cheese
  • Half an avocado, chopped
  • 1/4 jar of salsa
  • Lettuce (optional) 
  • Tomato (optional)

1. Season your chicken with Adobo seasoning.
2. Add EVOO to a skillet.
3. Saute your chicken/chicken patties for a few minutes per side or until they register 170 on a meat thermometer.
4. Toast your bun (if desired)
5. 4. Add BBQ sauce to your burger.
6. Add cheese and melt.
7. Mix avocado and salsa and place on top of burger.
