Jalapeno Popper Chicken Burgers

1 lbs of bacon, chopped into small pieces

2 lbs of ground chicken

1 cup sliced green onions

1 cup chopped cilantro

5-6 jalapeno slices

Ground pepper, to taste.

1.  Put bacon and jalapenos into a chopper and pulse into bacon and jalapenos are ground to the same texture as the ground chicken.

2. Mix chicken, bacon and jalapenos together in a large bowl.  

3.  Add cilantro and green onions.  Mix well.

4.  Form patties to desired size & lightly sprinkle with pepper.

5.  Preheat grill.  

6.  Cook burgers on medium for approximately 6-10 minutes per side (be sure to check with a thermometer that the internal temperature reaches 170 degrees), depending on thickness.  Ours were really thick and took about 12 minutes per side.
