"Looks and tastes great. With the price of beef nowadays I needed a healthier and a little cheaper way to get my burger fix. You could use ground turkey instead of chicken, I would think. And toasting the buns adds another layer of flavor."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This is gooooood, and I'm surprised! I hate, hate, hate dried out no flavor poultry burgers and admittedly really afraid of the end temp being 160 degrees... but determined to followed the directions exact since I planned to review ... baby!... The spices did the trick! I made them thick and in my cast iron to 160 mark. I can even say they came out almost juicy... I served the guac on the side and we enjoyed every bite with a side salad, felt healthy and satisfied! Try this one they are really good.
Excellent. The whole family loved, including the picky kids. I excluded the jalapeños inside the burgers, and let those who wanted them add the peppers as a topping to their burger. I also cooked them in my grill pan instead of the outdoor grill. I will definitely make these again.
Also, my grocer only sells the ground chicken in one pound increments, so I used two pounds of meat, and just eye-balled the cheese, onion and seasoning. I made 8 patties with the two pounds of meat.
These were great! I used ground turkey instead of chicken and they were very tasty. Super easy, full of flavor, and relatively healthy. We will definitely be making these again.
Awesome! I bought a 1 pound package of ground chicken, so I just used that instead of 1-1/2 pound, but kept everything else the same. I mixed these up the day before, formed them and put them into the fridge to allow the flavors to blend before cooking them tonight (this also firmed them up a bit). These had a great explosion of flavor that we all loved. I also used homemade guacamole, and hubby had salsa on his b/c he doesn't care for guac. These were a hit at dinner tonight...a definite keeper~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
If one of the great chefs on this site could post a picture that would be fantastic.
this was so awesome.. i left out the onion, used bottled lemon for the lime, and doubled the kosher salt.. i had mine without all the fixings and just put it in a leaf of lettuce.. dipped bf's hamburger buns in the juices leftover in the pan.. absolutely delicious.. doesn't need the guacamole
These were pretty awesome. We followed the recipe, however used turkey instead of chicken because its what we had on hand. It was still spectacular. I would highly recommend that you put the onion in with the mixture, even though the recipe doesn't say to. Gives it that much more flavor. My kids loved it as well, and couldn't believe that there were two jalapeños in it (lol). They are different, but really good, can't wait to have them again.
I didn't have any cumin or jalapeños on hand, so my patties (and my guac) were missing these favours, and the result was still so so tasty. The frozen ground chicken i had came in a 1lb pack, and that amount produced four thick patties, which cooked perfectly at medium-high on my grill for 4-5 min each side. Will probably make ahead and give a few hours to set in the fridge next time but this is a repeat make for sure.
