Weeknight Southwest Chickpea Burger Bar with Toppings

This recipe was inspired by Heinen’s What’s for Dinner?, a weekly meal guide with simple ingredients and step-by-step instructions.

Swapping burgers for sliders and letting everyone choose their toppings is a great way to make weeknight dinner a little more exciting (and kid-friendly)! Serve with fresh seasonal fruit, like watermelon spears or sliced peaches.
