  • Chicken Burgers
  • 2 lbs ground chicken
  • ¼ cup diced onion
  • ¼ cup diced red bell pepper
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely diced
  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp lime juice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • Buns for serving
  • Guacamole
  • 2 avocados
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp lime juice
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ pepper
  1. Mix together chicken, onions, red pepper, cilantro, crushed red pepper, chili powder, lime juice, salt and pepper. I mixed together that morning and let sit in the fridge until dinner that night, about 8 hours. You don’t have to do that, it just gives the meat some time to absorb all the flavor.
  2. Heat up the grill on Medium heat.
  3. Form into 6 patties.
  4. Once grill is hot, add burgers and cook about 5-7 minutes on each side or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. Try not to move them around so you can get some grill marks.
  5. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mash avocado with cumin, lime, salt and pepper to your desired guacamole consistency. I leave mine a little chunky.
  6. When burgers are finished, place on a bun and top with guacamole. We had this with a side of Spanish rice. So fresh and delicious!
A fresh spin on burgers. Perfect for summer grilling!
