Chili Lime Chicken Burgers with Avocado Salsa

1 1/2 pound ground chicken 95/5
1 small chopped red pepper about 1/2 cup
1 chopped poblano pepper green bell would work as well
1/2 lime, juiced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 cup bread crumbs – optional use if your ground chicken is too moist
Chili Seasoning
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground pepper
Avocado Salsa
1 large ripe avocado, smashed
1/2 lime, juiced
1/2 teaspoon chili seasoning you made for burgers

Instructions

  1. Combine all chili seasoning ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Combine all burger ingredients and shape into 4 patties. (if you find your ground chicken a little on moist side, add 1/4 to a 1/3 cup of bread crumbs).
  3. Season the top of your burgers with 3/4 of the seasoning mix. Saving the remainder for your avocado salsa.
  4. Heat grill pan to medium high heat and cook burgers for about 4-5 minutes on each side or until cooked through and meat thermometer reaches 165 degrees.
  5. Combine mashed avocado, lime and remaining seasoning. Taste. More salt, pepper, spices?. Cover and store in fridge until ready to use. The lime will keep it nice and green.
  6. Top burgers with avocado salsa and serve with or without your favorite bun
