Nacho Burger with Avocado Relish and Tomato-Chipotle Salsa

I asked Kristen to pick out the next recipe.  When she saw the entry for Nacho Burgers, her response was, "OH MY GOD YOU HAVE TO MAKE THESE!!"

I'm surprised that I did two Latin dishes in a row.  I'm not a big fan and I usually don't go for peppery foods.  But the last two have turned out great.  I'm upset that I threw out the chipotle peppers in adobo sauce from last time because I needed them this time too. 

This recipe was more about preparation than grilling.  The burgers are topped with a salsa and avocado relish which took most of the time to make.  Fortunately we had some burgers left over from an earlier cookout, so I made the salsa and relish while they thawed out.

And tonight's beverage of choice is Michelob Ultra with Lime.  Unfortunately it started to rain when I began to grill so I couldn't get any pictures. 

Although you could eat it as a regular burger, I ate it as an open-faced sandwich with a knife and fork.  The recipe called for blue tortilla chips, but the store didn't have any.  So I picked up some lime flavored chips instead.  It made for a nice yet unexpected crunch in the meal.  The whole thing was almost too much to have with a side dish.  =o9
