Tex Mex chicken burgers

10 minutes (15 minutes)
Serves 2

Serves 2

See recipe for Serves 4 here
  • 250g chicken breast fillet 
  • 2 tablespoon Heart Foundation Mexican spice blend 
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil 
  • ¼ cup drained, canned no added salt black beans 
  • ½ roma tomato, cut into 1cm pieces  
  • ¼ small red onion, thinly sliced 
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh coriander 
  • 1 tablespoon tomato salsa 
  • 2 wholegrain bread rolls 
  • ½ avocado, sliced 
  • 2 butter lettuce leaves 
  1. Cut chicken fillet in half horizontally to make 2 thin steaks. Combine spice blend and oil in a shallow dish. Add chicken steaks and turn to coat evenly with spice mixture.  
  2. Heat a medium non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add chicken. Cook for about 3 minutes on each side or until evenly browned and cooked through.  
  3. Meanwhile, combine beans, tomato, onion, coriander and salsa in a small bowl. 
  4. Split rolls in half and toast lightly. 
  5. To serve, place lettuce over base of rolls, then top with chicken, bean mix, avocado and roll tops.  

Tips  

  • For a shortcut, replace chicken breast fillets with 2 uncrumbed chicken breast schnitzel steaks, available from supermarkets and specialty chicken shops.  
  • Use medium wholegrain wraps instead of wholemeal rolls, if preferred. Check labels and choose the brand lowest in sodium
