Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium white onion thinly sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper seeded, deveined and thinly sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper seeded, deveined and thinly sliced
  • Kosher or fine sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 ripe avocados
  • ¼ cup chunky salsa
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • pounds ground chicken
  • ½ cup grated cheddar cheese or dairy-free shreds
  • 4 gluten-free hamburger buns

Instructions

  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion, bell peppers, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and starting to brown, about 8 minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  • Mash the avocados with the salsa and lime juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Prepare the grill for direct heat and preheat to medium-high.

  • Grill the burgers for 4 minutes with the lid closed. Flip and cook another 4 minutes or until the burgers are cooked through.
  • Serve the burgers on buns spread with the avocado mixture and topped with the onion and pepper mixture.
