a lovely living


Just in time for a beautiful summer weekend, I have the perfect recipe for you! I can’t believe I’ve never shared this one before because it’s been a hit in our house for a few years now. One of my girlfriends introduced this Cheddar Jalapeno Chicken Burger to me at one point years ago and I’ve been making them ever since. I tend to leave out the seeds for the kids, but you can easily turn the kick up on these! Either way, make sure you have some Corona’s on hand because they make the perfect pair, for sure!


Chicken Jalapeno Cheddar Burgers via What’s Gaby Cooking:

(*Note: I only use 1 pound of ground chicken as opposed to the 1.5 pounds this recipe calls for and I cut back slightly on all other ingredients)
1 1/2 pounds ground chicken
1/2 cup finely chopped yellow onion
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 teaspoons chopped jalapeño
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
1/3 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese
kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper

Toppings (optional)
4 burger buns, toasted
sour cream
sliced red onions
1 cup Guacamole

1. Prepare an indoor or outdoor grill over medium heat.
2. Transfer the ground chicken to a medium bowl. Add in the onion, cilantro, garlic, jalapeño, cumin, paprika, cheddar cheese, salt and freshly cracked black pepper. Using your hands, incorporate everything together. Make sure everything is evenly incorporated without over mixing the ground chicken.
3. Form the mixture into four 1/2″-thick patties. Grill burgers over medium heat until cooked through, 5-7 minutes per side.
4. Serve each patty in a burger bun topped with guacamole and sour cream and any additional toppings needed.
