For a deliciously different twist on turkey burgers, add a Southwestern flair with spices, Pepper Jack cheese and salsa to create Southwestern turkey burgers. For an even spicier burger, top with pickled jalapenos.
- 1 pound ground turkey
- 2-3 tablespoons Wicked Juicy Burger Turkey
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- ½ teaspoon cumin
- ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil (if frying)
- 4 slices Pepper Jack cheese
- 4 hamburger buns
- Prepared salsa of your choice
For garnish: pickled jalapenos, sliced onions, lettuce leaves
Combine turkey, Wicked Juicy Burger Turkey, chili powder, cumin and pepper in a large bowl. Lightly mix with your hands or a spatula until well blended. Divide meat into four equal portions and gently form each into a patty, about ¾ inch thick. (Do not compact the patties or handle them more than necessary.)
Pan fry the patties in the vegetable oil over medium-high heat, or grill or broil them to your preferred doneness. When burgers are almost done, lay a slice of Pepper Jack cheese over each to melt. Serve Southwestern turkey burgers on buns with salsa and your choice of garnishes.
