Mexican Turkey Burgers

We wanted to have a Mexican theme for dinner tonight and we pulled out some ground turkey. Dave absolutely loves Mexican food, so I thought I would appease him tonight and make something for him. We pulled out a jar of my Salsa Verde and a few other items and made Turkey burgers with a Mexican kick. Hope you all enjoy.


2 lbs ground turkey, 90% lean
½ red onion
2 jalapenos, seeded and minced
½ green pepper, chopped
1 tbsp garlic
2 tbsp homemade salsa verde
2 tbsp cumin
2 tbsp chili con carne
1 can black beans, rinsed
1 egg
2 cups bread crumbs
Cheese of your choice for the top

Combine all ingredients into a large mixing bowl 












Form into patties, size them to your liking. Dave likes them fairly large...as you can tell from the picture.










These burgers end up being more like individual meatloaves so Dave ends up usually cooking on low to medium heat on the grill and almost bakes them.  Cook them to your liking. Cover the top with cheese and melt.
