Pineapple Avocado Burgers

We've been craving burgers at our house lately and I wasn't sure I'd be able to find one worth making.  At our house we love bread and cheese and all the good stuff that makes a burger a burger.  It is embarrassing to admit we've had these 3 times in the last week?  Maybe?

1lb ground beef
pineapple
1 white onion, sliced thin
1/3 tablespoon chipotle chili powder
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon coarse sea salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 large avocado or 2 small
juice of 1 lime
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 tsp hot sauce
1/2 tsp chipotle chili powder
1 tsp olive oil
salt to taste

I've made some modifications to the original recipe because it was WAY too spicy for my taste.  I like moderately spicy food so that should give you an idea of whether you want to keep the same amount of chili powder or add more!

For the burgers you'll mix the ground beef, garlic, onion powder, sea salt, black pepper and 1/3 T chili powder together.  White your burgers are grilling mix up the avocado crema.  Combine the avocado, lime, lemon, hot sauce, chili powder and olive oil in a food processor.  You'll want to use a small one because there isn't quite enough liquid in this to mix properly in a larger one.  Add your salt at the end if you think it needs it.

I am sure this dish would have been even more divine if we had used fresh pineapple but I didn't have one on hand.  We used canned and it was still amazing!  I grilled the pineapple slices and the sliced onion topped the burgers with it.  They were gorgeous and super flavorful!!!

This is a great paleo/Whole30 friendly  meal also!
