Sizzlin Street Taco Burger
Everything you love about a spicy, chipotle Mexican street taco smashed between 2 buns! This Sizzlin Street Taco Burger starts with a perfectly grilled ground chicken breast pattie that has hints of chipotle, cumin, garlic, onion, and black beans in every bite. Topped with Colby jack cheese, fire roasted poblano peppers, and fresh tomatoes is just the start to this flavorful burger. To make this more street taco like, I added some smokey chipotle mango bacon for crunch and an extra gooey and spicy green chile queso. Make sure you have some Sutter Home Pinot Grigio near by because you may start a 3 alarm fire in your mouth!

1 sweet onion, peeled and grated
