Southwest Style Chicken Burgers

This is a all-time new favorite in my household.  Yes, thank you very MUCH.  Shannon even loves them, the famous chicken-hater! And Callie and Clay like them as much as they like anything for any amount of time.  Which means next week they could hate them.  🙂 I’ve been serving them with sweet potato fries.  Delish!


  • 1 Slightly beaten egg
  • 1/4 cup finely crushed nacho-flavored tortilla chips (or bread crumbs)
  • 3/4 Tsp Chili Powder
  • 1/4 Tsp Salt
  • 1/4 Tsp Pepper
  • 1 Pd Ground Uncooked Chicken
  • 2 oz Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeno peppers, sliced (or desired cheese)
  • 4 Whole Wheat Hamburger Buns
  • 1 Avocado, sliced
  • 1/4 Cup bottled salsa


in medium bowel combine egg, tortilla chips, chili powder, salt and pepper.  Add chicken, mix well (mixture will be wet).  Shape chicken mixture into four round patties.  Spray skillet with cooking spray and cook chicken patties until no longer pink on the inside- then add cheese slices and cook until melted.  Serve w/avocado and salsa, and sweet potato fries if desired.

We think this would go nicely with: Pinot Noir

Happy Eating Friends!  ~Trina
