  • 1 avocado, mashed
  • ¼ small red onion, finely chopped
  • 4 cherry tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 1 small handful fresh coriander, finely chopped
  • 1 lime, juice only

  1. Place the avocado, red onion, cherry tomatoes, fresh coriander and lime juice in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, mix to combine and set aside.
  2. Crush the tortilla chips, reheat the chilli con carne and toast the brioche burger buns in a dry pan and set aside.
  3. Divide the mince into 6 balls and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Heat a large cast iron pan over high heat. Add a splash of vegetable oil and two of the mince balls. Top each patty with a square of greaseproof paper and smash down with a spatula or something heavy to flatten.
  5. Cook for 2 minutes then flip, top with the cheese, add a splash of water and cover the pan to steam and melt the cheese. Repeat with the other mince balls.
