  • 1 Tbsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. Mexican oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. ground coriander

  • Combine the ground chicken and other burger ingredients in a large bowl. Lightly mix, using hands to combine. Pat out into four burger patties. Place in freezer.
  • While patties sit in freezer, preheat grill or grill pan and roast pasilla peppers for a few minutes, rotating, until charred on the outside. Place on a plate and cover with plastic wrap.

  • While patties are grilling, mix together chipotles, lime juice and mayonnaise in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • Carefully chop stems off peppers and cut in half. Discard seeds from center and slice peppers up.
