Jalapeno Cheddar Chicken Burgers!
By: Kecia’s Flavor Breakthrough!
Always looking for a way to pep up a burger. Plus I have found I really love ground chicken, more than beef. Of course you can use turkey or beef for these tasty treats as well! If you like a little kick to your burger, this is totally for you!
- 1 pound ground chicken
- 1 jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped
- ½ cup sharp cheddar cheese, diced (I used light)
- Salt and pepper
- 1 tsp. chili powder
- ½ tsp. ground cumin
- 1 tsp. cilantro
- 3 tbsp. mayonnaise (I used light)
- Juice from ½ lime
- 1 avocado sliced
- 1 tomato, sliced
- Red onion slices
- Shredded lettuce
- 3 whole wheat buns
Preheat the grill to medium heat.
Combine the chicken, jalapeno, cheddar cheese, salt and pepper in a large bowl.
Form into 3 patties. Place patties on grill for 5 minutes. Flip and go another 5 minutes. Flip again grill for an additional 2 minutes each side.
In the meantime combine the mayonnaise, chili powder, cumin, cilantro and lime juice together.
Spread on the inside of the tops of the buns.
Remove patties from grill
Place one on each bun. Top with the avocado, tomato and onion and shredded lettuce.
