smoky poblano & guacamole chicken burgers

I feel like I saw this a lot but.. WOW.  This recipe though.  You HAVE to try it asap.  I roasted poblano peppers and used them as a topping on this burger.  I also incorporated them into the guacamole – amazing.  I have no words.

Recipe: (makes about 6 burgers)

  • 2 packs ground chicken
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 Tablespoon all-purpose seasoning
  • salt & pepper
  • micro greens or sprouts
  • hamburger buns or butter lettuce
  • guacamole
    • 2 ripe avocados
    • Juice from 1 lime
    • 1/4 red onion
    • 1/2 clove garlic
    • salt & pepper to taste
    • 1 Tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped
    • 1 roasted poblano pepper
  • 4 roasted poblano peppers
    • Place peppers on a baking sheet.
    • Set the oven to broil.
    • Place the oven rack as close to the heat as you can.
    • Place peppers in the oven for about 8-10 minutes until the skin on the peppers become charred and cracked.
    • Remove peppers and flip them.
    • Repeat with the other side.
    • Once peppers are charred on both sides, place them in a small pot and cover with the lid.
    • Let peppers steam for about 20 minutes.
    • Carefully remove skin and seeds from the peppers and slice as you wish.IMG_9599
