Although my posts have been slightly sporadic lately, the activity certainly has not slowed down one bit. We’re eating burgers, dancing up a storm and making crafts along the way. This latest burger, the chicken cilantro burger, in the burger series was devoured a couple weeks ago, but I’m going to do my best to describe just how tasty it was.

I found a few recipes online that inspired me to make this refreshing burger. Here are three that served me well: 1, 2, 3. Served with some blue corn tortilla chips and semi-homemade salsa, it was the perfect weeknight meal.

I was just using those recipes as inspiration, and my final mix was ground chicken meat, fresh cilantro, onion, red bell pepper, lime juice, garlic, salt and pepper. I would have thrown in some jalapeño too, but I didn’t have any on hand so I added some crushed red pepper to give them some heat.

I used our typical gluten-free Udi’s buns and topped the burgers with lettuce, some pepper jack cheese and some “easy guac.” Easy guac is some smashed up avocado with lime juice and garlic. Easy peasy guac.

Like I said, these were a great dinner and I could definitely see the Mr. and I making them again soon. They’re perfect for summer months when you’re craving a burger, but want something with a fresher taste.
