Chipotle and lime chicken burgers

March 15, 2020

Spring is on the way and you might already be thinking all things grilling! I use to buy the Trader Joe’s chile & lime frozen chicken burgers and enjoyed them however there’s nothing better than a homemade version..These chipotle & lime burgers are so tasty, they have just the right amount of spice to them but you can easily swap a few things out if you want to tone them down, change the jalapeno pepper to a sweet pepper and use a cajun seasoning instead of the chipotle .. I love spice so I wouldn’t change a thing and they are not too spicy I promise! Makes 4 burgers that can easily be frozen, 0SP each on both blue and purple programs and 2SP each on the green program.

  2. Form into 4- 4.5-5oz patties
  3. I cooked mine on the barbecue, you can also cook in a frying pan if you wish..if using a barbecue mine took approx 20 minutes, turning a few times.

    You could cook them in the air fryer too I bet.
