Chicken Cheddar and Guacamole Burgers

Chicken Cheddar and Guacamole Burgers

1 1/2 pounds ground chicken
1/2 cup minced yellow onion
1/3 cup minced fresh cilantro
1/3 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
1/2 lime, juiced
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 slices Cheddar cheese
4 hamburger buns, split and toasted
1/4 cup guacamole, or to taste
4 teaspoons chopped fresh cilantro, or to taste

Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

Mix ground chicken, 1/3 cup cilantro, Cheddar cheese, garlic, jalapeno pepper, lime juice, cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper together in a bowl; shape into 4 patties.

Cook patties on grill until the bottom is browned, 3 to 4 minutes; flip the burgers and top with a slice of Cheddar cheese. Continue cooking until no longer pink in the center, 1 to 2 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Transfer burgers to a plate to rest until juices are reabsorbed into the meat, about 3 minutes.

Put burgers onto split buns and top with guacamole and cilantro.
