Southwest-Style Chicken Burgers

I tried this recipe tonight and it will easily become a family favorite. Scott and I both loved this recipe and the best thing is it's a healthy burger. These burgers are full of flavor and you can adjust the heat to your likings. I hope your family enjoys it as much as we did.

This recipe says to use the broiler but I just plugged in my George Foreman Grill.

Southwest-Style Chicken Burgers

1 slightly beaten egg
1/4 cup finely crushed nacho-flavor or plain tortilla chips
3 tablespoons finely chopped green sweet pepper
3/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 pound uncooked ground chicken
2 oz Pepper Jack cheese, sliced
4 hamburger buns, toasted
4 lettuce leaves
1/ 4 cup bottled salsa

1. In a medium bowl combine egg, tortilla chips, green pepper, chili powder, salt, and black pepper. Add chicken; mix well. (mixture will be wet). Shape chicken mixture into four 3/4 inch-thick round patties.

2. Place patties on the unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil 4 inches from the heat 14-18 minutes or until no longer pink, turning once halfway through broiling time. Top burger with cheese. Broil for 1 minute more or until cheese melts.

3. Serve burgers on toasted rolls; top with lettuce and salsa (and avocado if you like).
