Trader Joe's-best thing I've had in a long time!!

I am one of the very lucky people who have managed to have never lived further than a mile or two from a Trader Joe's.

In a recent post, someone (sent by angels said they had bought the Chicken, Chile, Lime burgers and thought they were good. Well, I bought them ad realized you have to defrost them before you cook them, so instead of having one for lunch today, I had one for dinner....OMG

These are only 1 net carb per patty and are moist and flavorful...I was shocked! I think I could live on those things. I put a little olive oil in the pan and fried it, put some guacamole on it, made some broccoli and it was a fantastic meal.

To whomever the person was that recommended these burgers

Run don't walk to TJ's today and get some....I have to hurry and go to sleep so I can wake up tomorrow and have another one

There are 4 to a box and they were either $4.99 or 5.99. Not sure if that fits your budget, but I will tell you they really are worth the $$$ if you can. They are not spicy, just have a ton of flavor. The fact that they were juicy really surprised me. It says you can broil them, but that might dry them out. Again, I cooked the one I made over medium high heat in a couple TBL. Of olive oil.

If you try them, let me know what you think!

Glad you like them! We LOVE those things just like that with guacamole on top. I cook mine on the bbq from frozen and they turn out just fine. LOVE them!

on the list. I go when I visit my inlaws up the freeway a bit. It is the closest one to me, and then I can pop over to TJs and leave the tiny terrorist with my inlaws. Those little shopping carts plus a little boy is bad news to other shoppers and the shelves - learned that one by experience. OMG, I was with my friend and I told her she should control her "kid"! LOL. She looked more horrified that I could ever imagine. The old people in line behind us gave her dirty looks! BAHAHA

Yeah they have those little carts at my newer TJs, the kids there love 'em and their parents more or less keep them in line.

Your friend should have put a ton of that Two Buck Chuck in her cart and motioned it to it when people gave her dirty looks about her son.
