Green Chili Chicken Burgers

I love to stuff things with things.  Blankets into footstools.  Magazines into baskets.  Cheese into burgers. 

Enter:  Green Chili Chicken Burgers.

Just so we're clear, it's chili as in green chilis, not like the soup-like substance.  Don't want to mislead you. 

But back to stuffing burgers with cheese. It's genius, you should try it. 

And invite your friends when you do.  And require that one of them bring hash brown casserole.  Everyone will love it.  You'll end up dancing in the den.

1 lb ground chicken

2 1/2 oz monetary jack cheese, diced small 
1/2 tbl honey
lime juice

Combine the chicken, olive oil, salt, pepper, cumin, onion powder, garlic, half of the chilies, and the cheese.  Form into four patties and cook by using your preferred cooking method.  

Combine the rest of the green chilies and the honey and the lime juice to make a yummy sauce.  Divide this evenly over the burgers.
