These burgers are a slightly spicy Southwestern style sandwich. 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 avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat sour  cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 pound ground chicken breast
  • 1 (4 ounce) can chopped green  chile peppers, drained
  • 1 fresh jalapeno pepper, seeded if desired and finely diced
  • 3 green onions, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder ground 
  • 4 slices Cheddar cheese
  • 4 hamburger buns, split
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • 1/3 cup salsa


To make the guacamole, place the avocado, cilantro, sour cream, chili powder, salt, and pepper in a food processor and pulse until  smooth..
Mix chicken, canned chilies, jalapeno pepper, green onions, oregano, salt, garlic powder, and pepper i n a bowl. Form the  mixture into 4 patties.
Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat.
Lightly oil the grill grate. Grill each patty 5 minutes per side, until well done. Move the patties to a cooler area of the grill to keep  warm, and top each patty with a slice of Cheddar cheese. Lightly  grill the buns while the cheese is melting.
Spread the bottom of each bun with guacamole, and top with 1/4 cup of shredded lettuce and a grilled  chicken burger. Spoon 1  tablespoon of salsa on each burger and top with the other half of  the bun to serve.
