Instructions 

Directions: To make the guacamole, combine the ingredients in a bowl, stir, and cover. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Preheat a gas grill to medium high. To make the chipotle mango glaze, combine the chipotle pepper, the mango chutney, and the ½ cup of pineapple juice in a food processor. Process until ingredients are finely minced and mixed thorough. Pour the mixture into a small cast iron sauce pan. Place on bottom rack of grill. Add brown sugar and lemon pepper, and stir over medium high heat. Bring glaze to a simmer stirring constantly. Remove from heat, cover, and let cool. To make the patties, combine the red onion, pineapple, jalapeno pepper, and cilantro in a food processor. Process until ingredients are finely minced and mixed thorough. Pour ingredients in a large bowl. Add ground chicken, Mexican cheese, remainder of Chicken Taco Seasoning, lemon pepper, lime juice, and grated Parmesan cheese. Mix thoroughly. Form into 6 equal patties, handling lightly to avoid compacting. When the grill is ready, brush the grill rack with olive oil. Place the patties on the rack cover and cook over medium heat, turning once after 6 to 7 minutes. Cook for 5 minutes. In the last three minutes of cooking, baste the patties with ½ of the chipotle mango glaze. Place the buns, cut side down, on the grill rack and grill until lightly toasted. To assemble the burgers, remove buns from the grill and place on plates. Top each bun with a chicken patty. Lightly spread each top bun with 2 tablespoons of the chipotle mango glaze and 2 tablespoons of the guacamole. Add the bun tops and serve. Makes 6 chicken burgers
