Southwestern Burgers with Guacamole

All I can say is:
Wow, this dinner turned out great!
I have really been trying to make
several new dishes each week this
summer since I have the time.
This one was definately new.
I really had no plan until I started
making the Chicken Burgers and
throwing together some flavors I like.

Southwestern Chicken Burgers

1lb ground chicken
3/4 cup corn kernels
1/2 red pepper, diced
1/2 white onion, diced
1/3 cup feta cheese
1 egg
bread crumbs
1/2 tbs chilli powder
dash of cayanne pepper

Dice the red pepper and white onion finely. Rinse and dry
the corn kernels. Then mix the ground chicken, corn,
red pepper, white onion, feta cheese. Add one small egg.
Mix well. Then add the bread crumbs slowly until you have
the burger texture you like. Add the chilli powder and cayanne
pepper. Form into burgers. Cook on grill or in oven. Make
sure to cook the burger at a medium temperature so that
the inside cooks completely.
I served the Southwestern Chicken Burgers
with a little guacamole with
Avacado, cilantro, lime juice, diced onion
a little cream cheese.
This was a wonderful dinner.
I served the burgers with green beans
and smashed potatoes with rosemary.

That sounds awesome! How come my dinners don't come out looking like they should be featured on the cover of Southern Living???

The burger was the best I've ever had (except maybe that one at the Ritz on the beach, I forgot, but that had unfair ambience advantage) This burger was so full of flavors it makes your head spin from the first bite! Grilled to perfection.
