Grilled avocado burger boats with smoky chipotle sliders make the perfect light dinner or side dish!
Can we all agree that avocado is the greatest thing since sliced bread?
Actually, I would say that avocado is better than sliced bread. We don’t really eat much bread around here . . . but we do eat plenty of avocado! Of course, avocado is all the rage right now. People are putting it on everything from tacos to toast! Of course, we (as paleo eaters) have to come up with some more creative ways to eat avocado, since traditional tacos and toast are taboo. My solution to this problem is to make these Grilled Avocado Burger Boats!
Grilling avocados sounds a little weird, I know. Trust me on this! The grilling process makes the flesh of the avocado even creamier, while the skin gets a little crispy and grill-marked. <– Grill marks on avocado?? Yum! Don’t you think things just taste better with grill marks on them? As if grill marks weren’t enough, we’re loading these babies up with smoky-sweet chipotle burger sliders (wait, vegan/vegetarian friends! I have an option for you!!), mustard, lettuce, and tomato! pssst . . . you could totally add some cheese if you wanted to . . . I won’t tell!Looking for a new way to eat avocado?

I’d suggest serving these as a light dinner or lunch, but you could definitely use them as a side or an appetizer too! Oh, and the actual slider recipe is so good — I’d make a double batch if I were you! They’re delicious, spicy, and flavorful!
Another awesome thing about this recipe? It’s crazy easy. Because everything can be cooked on the grill, there’s virtually nothing to cleanup. Even your plates will be licked clean . . .
This recipe is:
- All the frees . . . yes, even nut-free.
- Low-carb (I hear you, keto friends!)
- Vegan-adaptable! If you don’t eat meat, try tossing 6 ounces of cooked chickpeas with the burger seasonings. Then, bake them in the oven at 450 degrees F until crispy. Stuff your avocado with the chickpeas instead of meat!
Have I sold you on this recipe yet?
Okay, there’s one last picture to convince you. I know you’re drooling, so why don’t you just make these right now?!
