Mexican Turkey Burgers

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup salsa, divided
  • 1/4 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
  • 3 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 pound extra-lean ground turkey
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 4 hamburger buns, split
  • 1/2 cup torn curly endive
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped


Directions

  • In a large bowl, combine 1/4 cup salsa, cheese, paprika, oregano, cumin, sugar, garlic powder, thyme, salt and cayenne. Crumble turkey over mixture and mix well. Shape into four burgers.
  • Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, lightly coat the grill rack. Grill, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 165° and juices run clear.
  • In a small bowl, combine sour cream and remaining salsa. Place burgers on buns; top with endive, tomato and sour cream mixture.
  • Serve immediately or before grilling, wrap each burger in plastic wrap. Transfer to a heavy-duty resealable plastic bag or airtight container and freeze burgers for up to 3 months.
  • To use frozen burgers: Thaw in the refrigerator overnight. Unwrap burgers and grill or broil as directed. In a small bowl, combine 1/4 cup sour cream and 1/4 cup salsa. Place burgers on buns; top with endive, tomato and sour cream mixture. Yield: 4 servings.

I used ground beef because I had some to use up.  I didn't use the curly endive.
