Ingredients

  • 500 grams lean 5% beef mince
  • 1 small onion
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 whole fresh chilli very finely chopped
  • 1 tsp chilli powder mild or hot, depending on your taste
  • 1 tsp chipotle chilli flakes
  • ½ tsp garlic salt
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • low calorie cooking spray

Instructions

  1. Chop the onion finely and add to a large bowl.
  2. Add all of the spices, salt, herbs and fresh chilli to the bowl and mix with the onions.
  3. Add the minced beef and mix well. Make sure you squeeze the mince up with your hands as this will improve the texture of your burger. Continue to do this for a few minutes.
  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!
  5. Spray the frying pan with low calorie cooking spray and place the burgers in to cook. Don't turn the heat too high or the outside will burn before the burgers are cooked.

  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!
