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.

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! Read More
