  • 1 1/2 pounds ground chicken
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro minced
  • 1 large poblano chili pepper seeded and diced. Leave seeds for extra spiciness, as desired
