Chipotle and lime chicken burgers

Spring is on the way and you might already be thinking all things grilling! I use to buy the Trader Joe’s chile & lime frozen chicken burgers and enjoyed them however there’s nothing better than a homemade version..These chipotle & lime burgers are so tasty, they have just the right amount of spice to them but you can easily swap a few things out if you want to tone them down, change the jalapeno pepper to a sweet pepper and use a cajun seasoning instead of the chipotle .. I love spice so I wouldn’t change a thing and they are not too spicy I promise! Makes 4 burgers that can easily be frozen, 0SP each on both blue and purple programs and 2SP each on the green program.
