  1. For burgers:
  2. In a mixing bowl combine ground beef, the chipotles, onion, garlic clove, 1 teaspoon salt, and pepper.
  3. Combine ingredients and form into 4 patties.
  4. Cook burger to desired doneness and top with sliced cheese.
  5. For the Creamy Avocado Sauce:
  6. Add all sauce ingredients to a blender or food processor: Blend until ingredients are mixed well, adding more water to get desired consistency.
  7. For Street Corn Fritters:
  8. Place flour, baking powder,baking powder, chili powder, smoked paprika, salt, pepper and milk to a large bowl. Stir to combine.
  9. Fold in the corn, cilantro and cheese. The consistency will be thick. If too thick add a splash or two more of milk. The batter should be like very thick pancake batter.
  10. In a large skillet over medium high heat, place enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan. When the oil is hot drop fritter batter into hot oil using a small ice cream scoop. You want them small enough that about three will fit on the burger.
  11. Fry for about 1-2 minutes per side or until golden brown. Remove from skillet to a paper towel to drain. Repeat with remaining batter. If desired preheat oven to 300* and place fried fritters on a baking sheet to keep warm.
  12. Assembling the burgers:
  13. Place burger on toasted bottom of bun, top with avocado sauce, and place 2-3 fritters on top of sauce, place on bun top and enjoy!!!
