Need a quick easy dinner recipe idea, that your family will gobble up? I found this in the Rachael ray magazine and knew we would really enjoy it, plus I had all the ingredients already, I just love that about a recipe. This one only has 5 ingredients! It’s filling, healthy and a fun recipe to make and eat! Let me show you how.
This recipe is a fun take on old chips and dip. Give the wonderful flavor with out all the extra calories.
Ingredients: 1 pound ground beef, 1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp. jarred tomatillo salsa, Salt and pepper, 2 cups salted tortilla chips, ground in a food processor, 1 large tomato, diced, 1 avocado, diced
In a large plastic bag, add chips and using a mallet or rolling pin crush them finely.
Then in a large bowl, add the ground meat, salt, pepper and tomatillo salsa.
Mix well with your hands, or a spoon if you don’t like to touch raw meat.
Then make some lines down the middle and across to evenly make 4 patties.
Round and flatten in your palm, and coat with crushed chips.
In a large skillet on medium high, cook on each side about 3-4 minutes.
Meanwhile dice up your avocado, tomato, 2 T of salsa, and a little salt and pepper to taste. Mix together and set aside.
Flip the patties and see the pretty browning of the chips.
To serve add the avocado/tomato salad on top of the patties, serve with a side salad and some more chips.
Enjoy! No bun needed.

Chip and Dip Patties
Recipe from Rachael Ray Magazine
1 pound ground beef
1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp. jarred tomatillo salsa
Salt and pepper
2 cups salted tortilla chips, ground in a food processor
1 large tomato, diced
1 avocado, diced
In a large plastic bag add chips and using a mallet crush chips.
In a bowl, using your hands, combine the beef, 1/4 cup salsa and 1/4 tsp. each salt and pepper. Form the mixture into four 1/2-inch-thick patties. Coat in the tortilla chips, patting to adhere.
In a large, dry nonstick skillet, cook the patties over medium-low heat, turning once, until the chips are toasted and the meat is cooked to medium doneness, about 8 minutes.
Meanwhile, in another bowl, combine the tomatoes, avocado, and the remaining 2 tbsp. salsa; season with salt and pepper. To serve, top the patties with the tomato-avocado salad.
