Chicken Cheddar and Guacamole Burgers

Looks and tastes great. With the price of beef nowadays I needed a healthier and a little cheaper way to get my burger fix. You could use ground turkey instead of chicken, I would think. And toasting the buns adds another layer of flavor.



Step: 1

Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

Step: 2

Mix ground chicken, 1/3 cup cilantro, Cheddar cheese, garlic, jalapeno pepper, lime juice, cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper together in a bowl; shape into 4 patties.

Step: 3

Cook patties on grill until the bottom is browned, 3 to 4 minutes; flip the burgers and top with a slice of Cheddar cheese. Continue cooking until no longer pink in the center, 1 to 2 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Transfer burgers to a plate to rest until juices are reabsorbed into the meat, about 3 minutes.

Step: 4

Put burgers onto split buns and top with guacamole and cilantro.
