Green Chili Burgers.

I love trying new burger recipes and this recipe did not disappoint. I have a feeling that I'll be making these on a regular basis since my husband requested that I make them again after his second bite on the night I tried this recipe. Needless to say, there weren't even any leftovers that night. And this has been added to my menu plan for next week.


Green Chili Burgers
Slightly adapted from How Sweet It Is

1 pound ground chicken breast
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
2 garlic cloves, minced or pressed
2 (4 ounce) cans of diced green chilis
2.5 ounces of monterey jack cheese, cut into four chunks + more for topping
1/2 tablespoon honey
juice of half a lime
hamburger buns

Preheat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. In a bowl, combine chicken, oil, salt, pepper, onion powder, cumin, garlic, and 1/2 a can of green chilis. Mix until just combined, and divide the mixture into fourths. Take one fourth of the mixture and place a chunk of cheese in the center and form the patty around the cheese so that the cheese is completely covered. Repeat for each remaining patty.

Place in skillet and cook on each side until golden and cooked through, about 2-3 minutes per side. Once you flip the burgers, add additional cheese on top to melt.

While the burgers are cooking, combine remaining green chilis in a bowl with honey, lime juice, and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. When ready to serve, spoon green chilis on top of the burgers and eat!
