Spicy Chicken And Black Bean Burger

A week ago when we were sitting at the hospital through the long surgery that my Father-In-Law had, I kept thinking about a burger like this. I knew that it wouldn't 'go away' until I had made it and tasted it. I'm pleased to tell you that it is delicious and seems a bit spicier the longer it is in the fridge. This recipe makes 5 (¼ lb. each) burger patties and I prepared them all right away knowing that they would keep better that way. Because of the spicy and the black beans no one else here will touch them. They do not know what they're missing! But that only means I get to enjoy them longer. :)

¾-1 lb. ground chicken breast
(approximately one whole chicken breast)
1½ cup black beans, drained, rinsed, and chopped
¼ cup red onions, chopped
3 Tablespoons chopped habenaros
1½ teaspoon Perfect Pinch Southwest Seasoning
1½ teaspoon Perfect Pinch Fiesta Citrus Seasoning
1¼ teaspoon lime zest
1/3 teaspoon cumin

Combine all ingredients and form patties. Brown in grape seed oil. Assemble burgers and enjoy!

Serve with:
Mini Kaiser Rolls
bacon strips
pepper jack cheese

For the guacamole:
cilantro, chopped
lime juice

Mash the avocado with a fork and add the rest of the ingredients and combine. They would definitely be less messy to eat if the avocado would be simply sliced so I might give that a shot for the next round. :)

Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday!
♥Be Blessed!♥
