I didn't think it was possible to find a better turkey burger then the Greek Turkey Burgers I made a few weeks ago... but I was wrong!!
I found the Southwest Turkey Burger at:
They were SO GOOD and full of so much FLAVOR!!
I highly recommend this recipe!!
I am really loving the turkey burger lately!
(but I suppose if you are still unsure, or won't leave the beef behind... you could make this recipe with hamburger as well!!)
Servings: 6 medium or 4 large burgers
This picture doesn't even do the burger justice!
Here is what you will need:
- 1.25lbs. ground turkey
- 2 tablespoons butter, divided (I used olive oil!)
- 1/2 cup diced onion
- 1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1/3 cup sweet corn
- 1/3 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
- 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
- 1 tablespoon ground cumin
- 1/2 tablespoon chili powder
- 1 teaspoon each of salt and pepper
- 1/2 tablespoon smoked paprika
- Diced avocados
- Tomato slices
- Cheddar cheese
- Lime wedges
- 4 - 6 Hamburger buns
Place a large skillet over medium heat and melt 1/2 tablespoon butter (or use a tablespoon of olive oil). Saute onions, red pepper, and garlic until tender. About 5 minutes.
Remove from heat and stir in corn, black beans, salt and pepper to taste.
In a large bowl, combine ground turkey, sauteed vegetables, cilantro, cumin, chili powder, and smoke paprika. Divide into 6 patties (or 4 large patties).
In the same large skillet the veggies were sauteed in (or a counter top grill), place over medium heat again and melt half the remaining butter (or olive oil). Cook burgers until thoroughly cooked, about 4 minutes per side.
Serve immediately on buns, with desired toppings.
Tortilla chips and salsa or guacamole would go GREAT with this meal!
It's like a taco burger!! VERY tasty!
