"This isn't your average burger. It's a burger made Baja-style! No grill? No worries! This burger is made in a skillet and is easy to make! My mom made this when we were young. It's a burger creation made with corn chips and spices served up on French bread."

corn chips (such as Fritos®, crushed
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 (28 ounce) can
shredded Cheddar cheese
8 (6 inch)
French bread rolls, split in half lengthwise
Awesome! I crumbled the Fritos as suggested, so it wasn't soggy. It was defitiley a different way to prepare a burger. Interesting blend of flavors.
I thought they were tasty! I crumbled my fritos so they didn't get soggy. Great taste and something different!
Mistake in "Ingredients": So sorry, I accidentally wrote "browned ground beef" in the ingredients section. The patties are to be formed with "raw" ground beef and cornchips---not browned.
I added onions into the meat mixture. The texture was nice.. and I liked the flavor. I served this on homemade rolls.
My mom used to make this recipe when we were growing up also. I love it. I do alter it a little bit though. I add green olives and slowly simmmer the burgers with the tomato sauce. Delicious!
