Chicken Burgers with Guacamole on a Pretzel Bun

 Have you seen or tried the becoming very popular pretzel buns?
I have seen many restaurants adding this scrumptious bun to their menus.
They are soft, and definitely a pretzel.
I found a package of them on the same day bakery rack.
I grabbed them, paid for them, gently carried them home, and then stuck them
in the freezer for later eating. 
I wanted to do some studying and research something special to place in the
amazing pretzel buns.
 Look what I found.....
Chicken Burgers with Guacamole.
And yes, I found this awesome recipe on Pinterest.
Which lead me to What's Gaby Cooking?
 Once I got my burgers assembled, I had to stand back and really
look at these beauties.....
And then all of a sudden it hit me.
How am I going to eat these?
How am I going to get my mouth around these giant burgers?
Not only that, how am going to pick them up to GET them to my mouth?
This is how I had to eat the burger.
Yup, I had to cut it in pieces.
Then I had guacamole dripping off my elbows.
For real!
I did!

Chicken Burgers with Guacamole

1 1/2 lbs. ground chicken
1/2 c. finely chopped vadalia onion
1/4 c. finely chopped fresh cilantro
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 tsp. (a half of a jalapeno) chopped jalapeno
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. smoked paprika
1/3 c. finely shredded cheddar cheese
salt and freshly cracked black pepper

In an olive oil coated skillet heat over medium heat.
Transfer the ground chicken to a medium bowl.
Add onion, cilantro, garlic, jalapeno, cumin, paprika, cheddar cheese, salt and pepper. Using your hands, incorporate everything together. Make sure everything is evenly incorporated without over mixing the ground chicken.
Form the mixture into four 1/2"-thick patties. Cook burgers over medium heat until cooked through, 5-7 minutes per side.
Serve each patty in pretzel burger buns topped with guacamole, pico de gallo, and fresh spinach.
