Recipe: Mexican Chicken Burgers

It’s awesome when you make a little something in the kitchen for lunch and it’s so awesome you want to share with everyone! Mexican Chicken burgers with black beans and tomato salsa – get on this!!

Makes 4 burgers – two for lunch and two for tomorrow’s lunch!



1 x 400gram pack of chicken mince

1 tbsp pickled jalapeños

1/2 tin of black beans washed

1/4 bunch of coriander

1 tbsp Mexican Spice Mix – I make my own but use any good shop bought


1/2 pack of cherry tomatoes

Half of the coriander (above)

1/2 a small red onion diced

Squeeze of lime

Pinch of salt

To Serve:

Buns of your choice

Fresh iceberg lettuce

Sour cream / Mayo with a little hot sauce if you like


Mix the chicken mince with the Mexican spice mix and put in the fridge for 30.

Quarter the tomatoes and mix with the onion and finely chopped coriander and add a little squeeze of lime and salt. Leave to one side.

Mash the washed beans and add to the chicken with the chopped jalapeños and coriander- I find it easier to wear gloves and mix by hand as it’s a sticky mix.

Have your frying pan ready with a touch of oil and then split your mix into two and then split again to made four tennis balls. Mould into a burger shape and fry on a medium heat for about 9 mins per side, I always cut mine open to check when done – don’t mess with chicken!!

Prep your buns with a smear of sour cream, lettuce, salsa and your gorgeous burger!

Too easy! Enjoy ?
