For sauce, in a small bowl stir together the mayonnaise or salad dressing, sour cream, the 1 clove garlic, and the black pepper.
Cover and chill until serving time.
In a large bowl combine bread crumbs, water, chili powder, chipotle peppers, the 2 cloves garlic, and the salt.
Add ground turkey or chicken; mix well.
Form into four 3/4-inch-thick patties.
Place patties on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals.
Grill for 14 to 18 minutes or until done (165°), turning once.
To serve, spread the bottoms of rolls or buns with adobo sauce.
Top with burgers and sauce.
Add lettuce leaves, tomato slices, and, if desired, avocado slices.
Replace roll or bun tops.
