“I was shocked at how good this is. I gave myself several pats on the back for this one. I expected it to be pretty good, but it was more like amazing. Don’t forget, grilling is certainly an option.”
1 lb package ground chicken
1 egg – slightly beaten
1/4 cup crushed tortilla chips
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
6 slices pepper jack cheese
1 package hamburger buns – toasted
1 large avocados – halved, peeled, and sliced
1 head iceburg lettuce – 6 leaves peeled off
1/4 cup salsa
1) In a medium bowl stir together egg, tortilla chips, chili powder, salt, and pepper. Add chicken; mix well. Mixture will be wet and sticky. Shape chicken into 6 half inch thick patties.
2) In a large non-stick skillet or griddle, cook chicken patties for about 4 – 5 minutes on each side – until golden brown and cooked through. Top with cheese immediately. Serve burgers on toasted buns; top with avocado slices, lettuce, and salsa.
