When we got home I was still in a fajita mood since they turned out so great, but instead of making Chris endure the same meal two weeks in a row, I wanted to use the same ingredients in a new dish. I used the same seasonings, but mixed them in with ground chicken to make a burger patty. I topped the burger with my amazing guacamole and sautéed vegetables, and it was a huge hit. Perfect for these summer months, too. Enjoy!
Makes 4 burgers
For the burgers:
- 1 lb. ground chicken
- 1 egg
- 1 cup Panko bread crumbs
- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp. seasoned salt
- 1/2 tsp. cumin
- 1/2 tsp. chili powder
- Dash of paprika
- Dash of crushed red pepper flakes
- 1 tbsp. lime juice
- 1 tbsp. butter
- 1 red bell pepper, sliced thin
- 1 green bell pepper, sliced thin
- 1 yellow onion, sliced thin
- 4 slices cheddar cheese
- 4 sandwich buns
In a large bowl, combine the ground chicken, egg, bread crumbs, garlic powder, seasoned salt, cumin, chili powder, paprika, red pepper flakes and lime juice. Use your hands to combine. Pat into 4 equal sized patties.
Place the chicken patties on a hot grill over medium heat and cook for 5 minutes. Flip and continue cooking for 5 minutes. Top with the cheese, turn off the grill, and close the lid to let the cheese melt. Remove to a plate.
While the burgers are cooking, heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add butter and allow to melt. Add the sliced peppers and onion to the skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, until peppers and onions are tender, about 8 minutes.
Meanwhile, place the buns in a toaster and toast until light brown.
Top the buns with guacamole, burgers, and vegetables to serve.
