      This looks really yummy! Do you think it could be made without avocado?

      Not a big avocado fans, I think we will be leaving that part out but the rest sounds super yummy. All my burger recipes are made with venison. I can not wait till Oct 5.

      I ran out of venison 3 weeks ago.

      The avocado appears to be a flavoring ingredient and not a ‘binding’ one so it should be okay without. If you have worries, just increase the tortilla chips to 3/4 cup. I do recommend that you try it first without the avocado and if it is not the desired texture, increase the tortilla chips as I recommended.
      As a side note, this would probably be excellent with whatever ground meat that you choose to use…just be cautious using pork alone as it is just so fatty.

      If you want to use ground pork, you may want to blend it with another meat source. My personal preference when making meatloaf is an equal blend of beef, chicken (or turkey if on sale), and pork.
      Hope this helps…
