1½ pounds ground chicken
½ cup finely chopped red or yellow onion
¼ cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 teaspoons chopped jalapeño
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
⅓ cup finely shredded cheddar cheese
Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper
Sour cream, chipotle salsa, sliced red onion and/or lettuce for topping, optional
Prepare an indoor or outdoor grill for cooking over medium heat.
Combine the chicken, onion, cilantro, jalapeño, cumin, paprika, cheese, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Use your hands to mix everything together without overworking the chicken.
Gently form the mixture into four ½-inch thick patties. Grill over medium heat until cooked through, 5-7 minutes per side. Serve on buns with your choice of toppings.
