Cheddar Jalapeno Chicken Burgers

We finally got our grill up and running again. The hubby had to take it apart, repair it and clean it. Thankfully he finished the job early yesterday, just in time to have a BBQ for the 4th of July. I had forgotten how great things taste when cooked on the grill. Also, let's face it, what is sexier than a man doing the cooking? ;)
Tonight I wanted to be able to grill again. My poor hubby hardly got any sleep last night due to fireworks and having to get up extremely early for work. So I wasn't sure how he would feel about manning the BBQ again tonight. But he is such a trooper and this is what he got rewarded with for doing the grilling. This is so tasty and for someone like me who doesn't even like burgers, this is a great solution to the problem. I stumbled onto this recipe on Pinterest and boy oh boy am I glad I did! This one is definitely a keeper.
Recipe Source: 

1 1/2 pounds ground chicken
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 tsp chopped, fresh jalapeno
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp paprika
1/3 cup cheddar cheese, grated
Salt/Pepper to taste
Tomato slices
Fresh Spinach leaves

Place ground chicken in large bowl.
Add in the onion, cilantro, garlic, jalapeno, cumin, paprika, cheese, salt and pepper. Use your hands and mix all this together thoroughly.
Form into 4 patties.
Grill over medium heat until cooked through. Approx 5-7 min. per side.
Top each burger with tomato slices, spinach leaves and guacamole.
