Mexican Chicken Burgers
With an endless number of barbecues this time of year, it’s easy to get bored of eating the same basic burgers over and over again. To add a bit of variation to your grilling routine, try these mexican chicken burgers.

The patties are spiced with cumin and smoked paprika and mixed with chopped red onion, jalapeños and cilantro for extra flavour and texture. I serve the patties on a grilled slice of butternut squash to keep these burgers completely SCD compliant, but you can alternatively use sweet potato slices prepared the same way if you are following a less restrictive grain free/Paleo diet.

I topped each patty with smashed avocado and a fresh salsa, but feel free to add on any other toppings such as grated cheese, jalapenos or pureed black beans.
