Chili Lime Chicken Burger

In the mood to grill for Cinco de Mayo? I have the perfect burger for you! This Chili Lime Chicken Burger pacts a ton of flavor and is still good for the waist line. But be warned, if you have never worked with ground chicken before it is very sticky. I recommend you become good friends with your non stick cooking spray.

I love a change from the traditional burger and this does not disappoint. They are slightly spicy, but the guacamole helps balance out the spice. Seriously make these now! With ground chicken on sale you really have no reason to say no.
