We’ve used Chipotle Chilli Flakes in this Syn Free Tex Mex Burgers recipe. You can pick these up from Asda, or online from Amazon! They really have the most incredible flavour!

Whenever we need to replace oil in cooking we use Frylight. Perfect for everyday frying and cooking, it delivers exactly one calorie per spray, which makes it Syn free! We used the Avocado Oil one for this Syn Free Tex Mex Burgers recipe, and it was fab!

Continue to do this for a few minutes.

Step 4

Heat a large frying pan on a medium heat. Split the burger mix into 4 equal pieces and shape as desired.

The depth of your burger will alter the cooking time – we’ve made these to the same diameter as a Healthy Extra B roll.

Step 5

Spray the frying pan with Frylight and place the burgers in to cook.

Don’t turn the heat too high or the outside will burn before the burgers are cooked.

Step 6

Turn the burgers after around 4-5 minutes and cook for a further 4-5 minutes on the second side.

Don’t try to turn the burgers too soon or they may fall apart. The burgers should be well browned and cooked through without having dried out. Serve with your choice of accompaniment!
