SERVINGS: 4

INGREDIENTS

1/2 red onion, thinly sliced into rounds

1/4 c. red wine vinegar

2 avocados, diced

1/2 c. freshly chopped cilantro, divided

3 tbsp. lime juice

kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

1 lb. ground chicken

1 clove garlic, minced

2 tsp. cumin

1/4 tsp. cayenne

1/2 jalapeño, seeded and minced (2 tbsp.)

1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

2 oz. white cheddar, thinly sliced

4 brioche buns, lightly toasted

1 tomato, sliced

DIRECTIONS

In small bowl, combine red onions and red wine vinegar. Let sit 15 minutes (or until burgers are ready); drain vinegar.

In a medium bowl, combine avocados, 3 tablespoons cilantro, and lime juice with a fork, mashing lightly to make a chunky mixture. Season with salt and pepper.

In another medium bowl, combine chicken, garlic, cumin, cayenne, jalapeño, and the remaining cilantro. Season with salt and pepper. Shape mixture into 4 patties.

Preheat a broiler to high. Brush an ovenproof nonstick skillet with olive oil and sear patties until golden and cooked through, 3 minutes per side. Place 1 or 2 slices of cheddar on each burger and place under broiler until cheese is melted, 1 minute.

Serve on brioche buns with tomato, guacamole, and pickled red onions.
