Cheddar Jalapeño Burgers


Cheddar jalapeno burger

Mother Nature finally got the message that it is spring and not winter because our temperatures have been on the rise these past few days! Even though we use our grill all year, even in the snow, there is something about the first warm spring day that makes the grill scream "use me!" So, today we did! Despite some rain, we had a craving for burgers. Being that we are always searching for new flavor combinations for our burgers, I decided to give these a try. They came together very quickly and were absolutely delicious! These were the perfect way to welcome spring. Now, I just hope that this weather sticks around for a while!

1 1/2 pounds Ground Chicken (I used ground turkey)
1/2 cup Onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup Cilantro, finely chopped
2 teaspoons Jalapeño, chopped (I used 1/2 of a large jalapeño)
1 teaspoon Ground Cumin
1 teaspoon Paprika
1/3 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Salt and Pepper

Place all ingredients in a large bowl. Using your hands, mix everything until well incorporated, taking care not to over mix. Form the mixture into four equal-sized patties. Cook the burgers on a grill over medium heat until cooked through, about 5-7 minutes on each side. Serve each burger on a bun topped with sour cream and guacamole, if desired (I put a little bit of bbq sauce on mine and it was delicious).
