Chilli Chicken Burgers

    30 minutes

    These burgers are slightly spicy, served with salsa, lettuce and cheese on a bun. I came up with the idea for these burgers one night when I was feeling really creative, and they were a huge hit with my family.

    1. To make the guacamole, place the avocado, coriander, sour cream, chilli powder, salt and pepper in a food processor and pulse until smooth..
    2. Mix chicken, jalapenos, fresh chilli, spring onions, oregano, salt, garlic powder and pepper in a bowl. Form the mixture into 4 patties.
    3. Preheat a barbecue for medium heat.
    4. Lightly oil the barbecue grate. Barbecue each patty 5 minutes per side, until well done. Move the patties to a cooler area of the barbecue to keep warm and top each patty with a slice of cheddar cheese. Lightly barbecue the rolls while the cheese is melting.
    5. Spread the bottom of each roll with guacamole and top with 1/4 cup of grated lettuce and a barbecued chicken burger. Spoon 1 tablespoon of salsa on each burger and top with the other half of the roll to serve.

    Garlic Powder

    Fresh garlic may be substituted for the garlic powder.

    Really good! I made a couple changes because I had some different things in the pantry and also because we like things real spicy! Guacamole: I added a few squeezes fresh lime (or lemon) and a lot of hot salsa, also 1/3 chopped onion and 7 or 8 slices of jalapeno. Burger: 2/3's onion instead of green onion 1/2 tsp chili powder 15 jalapeno slices 1 piece of bread put through food processor I didn't use the green chile's I also used smoked provolone cheese instead instead of cheddar. It was sooooo delicious! Great recipe! Oh ya, also, for the kids I just saved some of the ground chicken and bread crumbs and added some salt and pepper, chicken Worcestershire sauce and Parmesan cheese. I made them in tiny patties and my son said it was the best chicken nugget he ever had!  -  20 Mar 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
