One of my favorite party dips is premade raspberry chipolte sauce, or jalepeno jelly, pored over cream cheese served with crackers. Simple, yet delicious! As far as I am concerned, this spread is great on everything, so why not burgers! I set out to make my own raspberry chipolte sauce, which was quite simple and quite delicious. It was then I discover how fantastic avacados make a burger when combined with the meat. The oil in the avacado keeps the burgers moist and delicious! The cream cheese helps bance out the spicy sweet of the sauce. I know you will love these burgers as much as I do!
