Chicken Taco Burger

This burger recipe came to my sister and I when we had a family get together. Our Dad is allergic to beef so we always try to find something he can eat when we all get together and cook on the grill. I enjoyed these so much when we made them that I have made them at home a few times myself. Growing up my Mom would make my Dad turkey burgers. I hated the way they smelled when they were cooking so I never tried them. I still really can't stomach the thought of a turkey burger. I am not saying they are not good, just not something I want to try. Our family are huge taco lovers, so anything taco has to be good.  The key here is not to make the meat too moist. It will not hold together very well.  A healthier version of a burger.

Chicken Taco Burgers

1 package of ground chicken

2-3 tablespoons of taco seasoning
2 tablespoons of salsa, more for topping ( I usually use mild)

Mix the ground chicken with the taco seasoning and salsa. Make into patties and grill. Cook until done, top with cheddar cheese, salsa, and your favorite taco toppings.
