Jalapeño Cheddar Chicken Burger

If you’re a fan of spicy food, you’re going to love this triple jalapeño cheddar chicken burger recipe. This burger packs a punch with  jalapeños and a generous helping of cheddar cheese. The combination of flavors is sure to satisfy your craving for something hot and delicious.

You’ll need the following ingredients:

  • 1lb of ground chicken
  • 1/2 a cup finely diced yellow onion
  • 1 cup of cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 2 jalapeño peppers, seeded and diced
  • 1/2 a cup shredded cheddar
  • 1/3 cup cilantro chopped
  • 2 cloves mined garlic
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 slices of cheddar cheese
  • 4 brioche buns
  • Trader Joes Jalapeno sauce
  • Arugula, avocado, and any other toppings you desire

Preparing The Burgers

To make these burgers, mix the ground chicken, onion, jalapeño peppers, shredded cheddar cheese, cilantro, minced garlic, cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Form the mixture into 4-6 patties. Grill the patties for about 4-6 minutes on each side, or until they’re cooked through (internal temperature of 160 degrees) I like to add a little breadcrumbs to each side of the burger before cooking it.

While the burgers are grilling, toast your burger buns and prepare any toppings. My favorite toppings are arugula, crispy jalapeño pieces, avocado and, you cant forget the Trader Joes jalapeño sauce. Adding this to your chicken burger can take it to the next level in terms of flavor and heat. The sauce adds a spicy kick to the burger, giving it an extra layer of flavor that can’t be achieved with just the chicken and other toppings alone.

Once the burgers are cooked top them with a slice of cheddar cheese. The cheddar cheese will melt and add a creamy and savory flavor. To assemble the burgers, place the chicken patties on the bottom half of the burger buns. Top with arugula, avocado, and the jalapeño sauce. Add the top half of the burger buns and serve immediately.

The Triple Jalapeno Cheddar Chicken Burger is the perfect recipe for anyone who loves a little heat in their food. The combination of spicy jalapenos and gooey cheddar cheese is sure to tantalize your taste buds and leave you wanting more. Give this recipe a try the next time you’re in the mood for a delicious and spicy meal!

No matter how you top it, the Jalapeno Cheddar Chicken Burger is sure to be a hit with spicy food lovers everywhere.
