Tequila Lime Chicken Burger

Ingredients 

Salsa
1 medium tomato, diced
1/2 white onion, diced
1 jalapeno, de-veined, seeded and diced
2 tablespoons lime juice
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Tequila Lime Mayonnaise
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon tequila
1 teaspoon lime juice
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Patty
1&1/2 pounds ground chicken
1 tablespoon tequila
2 teaspoons lime juice
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 jalapeno, de-veined, seeded and diced
2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Vegetable oil, for brushing on the grill rack
6 hamburger rolls, split
6 slices monterey Jack cheese
6 lettuce leaves

Instructions 

Preheat a medium-hot fire in a charcoal grill with a cover, or preheat a gas grill to medium-high.

To make the salsa, combine all of the ingredients in a bowl, cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

To make the mayonnaise, combine all of the ingredients in a small bowl, cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

To make the patties, combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl. Handling the meat as little as possible, mix well. Divide the mixture into 6 equal portions and form the portions into patties to fit the rolls.

When the grill is ready, brush the grill rack with vegetable oil. Place the patties on the rack, cover, and cook, turning once, just until the juices run clear when the patties are pierced in the center, about 5 minutes on each side. During the last few minutes of cooking, place the buns, cut side down, on the outer edges of the rack to toast lightly and place a slice of cheese on each patty.

To assemble the burgers, spread the mayonnaise over the cut sides of the rolls. On each roll bottom, place a lettuce leaf, the patty and equal parts of salsa. Add the bun tops and serve.
