  2. While the burger patties are chilling and resting, make and ancho chili sauce and refrigerate until serving. the recipe will make more than you need. Extra is good on a sandwich or as a dip for raw vegetables.
  3. Fire up the grill (or a grill pan) until hot. Make sure the grill is brushed clean and then coated with a grill-safe spray or a little oil on a wad of paper towels with tongs. Turn heat down to medium, and add your burgers. Grill on one side until browned and grill marks have formed. Turn the burger and finish cooking until they reach 160? - 165? in the center with a digital thermometer. They will feel firm but not hard.
  4. To build burgers, place lettuce on the bottom of the bun, add the burger and top with tomato, onion, sauce and avocado.
