Homemade Version of Trader Joe's Chili Lime Turkey Burgers!

I love Trader Joe's and I especially love turkey burgers!  The Chili Lime burgers are my fave so I was ecstatic when I was able to make them at home! Here's the recipe if you want to try!

Chili Lime Chicken Burgers

1lb ground chicken
2 green onions, chopped
1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
2 Tablespoons chopped cilantro
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 lime, cut in half
4 slices pepper jack cheese
4 buns, toasted
For the guacamole:
1 avocado
garlic powder
salt & pepper
  1.  Combine chicken, green onions, bell pepper, cilantro, garlic, salt, red pepper flakes and juice of half a lime in a large bowl. Mix until thoroughly combined, then form into 4 patties and spray each side generously with non-stick spray.
  2. Heat a large grill pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Grill burgers for 3-4 minutes a side, or until cooked all the way through. Place a slice of cheese on top of each burger, then cover with a large pot lid, and allow to melt for about a minute. Remove burgers to a plate, tent with foil, and allow to rest for 5 minutes. Place each burger on a toasted thin bun, then top with guacamole.
  3. For the guacamole: Mash all ingredients together with a potato masher or fork.
