Burger Patties

  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1/2 cup baked tortilla chips crushed
  • 1 small onion finely diced
  • 1/2 red pepper finely diced
  • 1 1/2 tbsp chipotle chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • salt
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil

For Serving

  • 5-6 multigrain rolls
  • 2 cups choice of greens
  • 1 avocado thinly sliced
  • 1 cup salsa (homemade or store bought)
  • 1/2 red onion sliced (optional)
  • baked tortilla chips (optional)


  • In a medium mixing bowl combine all the ingredients listed under burger patties (except the oil). Mix well and divide into 5-6 equal parts. Form each part into a roughly 1/2" thick patty
  • Heat grill pan on a medium heat. Lightly grease the pan with oil. Cook chicken patties on heated grill for 5-6 min on each side or until well done. You can also cook patties on an outdoor charcoal or gas grill for extra smokey flavors.
  • Cut burger buns into half and slightly toast them on the grill.
  • Place some greens on one side of burger rolls followed by the grilled chicken patty, some onions, fresh avocado slices. Finally, top with fresh salsa and serve with tortilla chips.


  1. You can add cheese as well if you’d like to. Place a cheese slice on the grilled burger patty just before taking it out from the pan.
