Your mouth will say Ole!

Sorry no picture on this one, that's because they were so good I plum forgot!

Another recipe from my Better Homes and Garden Breast Cancer cook book - this is a great one if you don't already own it.

These burgers were so fun and good. Certainly a make again!

Southwest Style Chicken Burgers
1 egg slightly beaten
1/4 cup finely chopped tortilla chips - this is used as part of the binder for the meat, but I also had to add a little breadcrumb - to feel and see what you need.
3 T green sweet pepper finely chopped - I omitted this for 3 T diced chiles from the can.
3/4 tsp. chili powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 pound ground turkey or chicken
2 oz. pepper jack cheese
hamburger buns or rolls
1 avocado halved
lettuce and salsa

In a medium bowl mix the egg, tortilla chips, pepper, chili powder, salt and pepper. Add chicken, mix well - mixture will be wet. Form in to 4 patties.

Place patties on the unheated rack of a broiler pan and broil about 4 inches from the flame for 18 minutes or until no longerpink and it registers 165. Turn half way. We just cooked ours on our griddle pan on the stove top.

Top each patty with a slice of cheese and let it melt.

Serve on buns with avocado slices, lettuce and salsa.

MMMM My mouth is watering thinking of this!!

I took a leftover patty with some salad and some of the Wish Bone Ranch Dressing Salad Spritzer and it was so fun and tasty!
