Mexican Fiesta Taco Turkey Burger

INGREDIENTS:

  • 8 oz raw 85%-94% fat free ground turkey – yields 5 oz cooked (1 lean)
  • 1/4 cup chopped green peppers (1/2 green)
  • 1/4 cup chopped red peppers (1/2 green)
  • 2 tsp low sodium taco seasoning mix (3 condiments)
  • 1 tbsp water
  • dash of Worcestershire sauce
  • dash Tabasco sauce

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Place turkey, green peppers, red peppers, taco seasoning mix, 1 tbsp water, Worcestershire sauce and Tabasco sauce into a mixing bowl. Mix until just combined.
  2. Form patties.
  3. Once all are formed, cook however you like to cook burgers. Grill (indoor or out), cook in hot skillet, or broil under broiler.
  4. Cook for 3-4 minutes per side or until an internal thermometer has reached 165 degrees.

*Note: If you would like to add 1 oz 2% reduced fat cheese such as Mexican Three Cheese blend 3-6g fat /oz to the top of your burger, decrease your raw meat to 7 oz so that it yields 3.75 oz cooked. You can also use one slice of 2% American Cheese that is 2.5 grams of fat in place of the Mexican Cheese.
