Ingredient List


  • 500g chicken mince
  • 1 pack Old El Paso™ Garlic & Paprika Seasoning Mix for Tacos
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 4 mature Cheddar cheese slices
  • 4 burger buns or whole meal crusty rolls, split

To Serve

  • Guacamole
  • Old El Paso™ Thick ‘N’ Chunky Salsa
  • Chopped spring onion


  1. Place the chicken and seasoning mix in a large bowl and using clean damp hands mix together thoroughly. Divide and shape the mixture into four patties each about 1.5m thick.
  2. Heat a medium non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Add the oil and fry the burgers for 6-8 minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through (with no sign of pinkness in the middle). Press down firmly with a spatula occasionally to ensure even cooking.
  3. Preheat the grill to medium. Place each burger on one half of a burger bun and top with a slice of cheese. Pop under the grill for a few seconds until the cheese just melts.
  4. Serve topped with a little guacamole, salsa, chopped spring onions and the top half of the burger buns.
