To make this Slimming World recipe, preheat the oven to 240ºC/gas 9.
Place the chips in a pan of lightly salted boiling water for 3-4 mins. Drain well on kitchen paper and leave to dry for about 10 mins.
Return the chips to the dry pan, cover with a lid and shake to ‘rough-up’ the edges of the chips. Transfer to a non-stick roasting tin, spray with low-calorie cooking spray and bake for 20-25 mins, turning occasionally.
Meanwhile place all the salsa ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to low and cook gently for 4-5 mins. Remove from the heat and allow to cool to room temperature.
To make the burgers: Place the minced beef, shallots, Worcestershire sauce and garlic in a bowl and, using your hands, combine thoroughly. Season well, divide into four and shape into flat burgers. Spray the burgers with low-calorie cooking spray, place under a hot grill and cook for 5-6 mins on each side or until cooked to your liking. Remove and keep warm.
To assemble the burgers: Split the rolls in half and place a lettuce leaf and a tomato slice on top of each base. Top with a burger and some of the salsa, and serve immediately with the chips and some grated carrot and shredded red cabbage.
