Chuleta Recipe: Mexican Patties with Blue Corn

Mexican Beef Chuleta Patties with Blue Corn

This is an old recipe that I ran across quite a while ago, and I wanted to be sure to convert it into a gluten free/dairy free recipe with lots of flavor. I played around with different ingredients and ended up with this delicious version, which I love! 

These patties are a huge hit with my son who loves anything that is like a burger, meatloaf or meatballs. He gave it his stamp of approval. I really enjoy the crunch of the blue corn chips on the outside of the patties and the flavor of the chives as well. 

These are delicious served with a variety of side dishes such as refried beans, rice, salsa and guacamole. I hope that you enjoy this for a delicious weeknight dinner soon! 

Mexican Chuleta Patties with Blue Corn: 

1 pound organic grass fed ground beef

2 tablespoons chopped chives

1/2 cup onions, finely chopped

1/3 teaspoon chili powder

1 egg

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

ground pepper

1/2 cup crushed organic blue corn chips +( 1 cup crushed organic blue corn chips for coating patties with) 

1. In a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, chives, onions, chili powder, egg, salt, pepper and 1/2 cup crushed blue corn chips. 

2. Form small patties (makes 12-15 patties). Place on a plate, cover with plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes. 

3. Then, heat some olive oil in an electric skillet heated to 350F or a skillet on the stove over medium heat. Place the patties in the skillet and brown thoroughly on each side. Make sure the middle of the patties are cooked through.
