Southwest Chicken Burger

Burgers aren’t just about how much you can shove between two perfect buns. Sometimes, they are about laying it all out too and seeing just how creative you can be. 

With grill season full-on (when is it not?) this healthy Southwest Chicken Burger is a fun alternative to taco night or just another naked patty on the grill.


- Egg - Tortilla chips - Green pepper - Chili powder - Black pepper - Ground chicken - Texas toast - Guacamole - Salsa and pickled onions


Preheat your grill for medium heat. Clean and oil the grill grate.

Combine the egg with the tortillas, pepper, chili powder, salt, pepper and chicken. Mix well to combine.

Using your hands, shape the chicken mixture into 4 large patties about ¾″ thick.

Grill the chicken burgers for 14 to 18 minutes, flipping once halfway through cook time, or until 165 degrees F and cooked through.

Allow to rest in foil for 5 minutes before serving.

Meanwhile, prepare the Texas Toast according to package.

Serve the burgers open faced over the Texas toast with a healthy slathering of guac and some additional crushed tortillas, fresh salsa, and pickled red onion.
