Serves: 6 Burgers
  • Southwest Turkey Patties:
  • 1 Small Onion, chopped finely
  • 1 lb. Ground Turkey
  • 1 lb. Lean Turkey Sausage (I used hot but you can use mild if desired)
  • 1 Can Black Beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 Cup Bell Peppers, finely chopped (I used 1 small red and 1 small yellow)
  • 1 Jalapeno, deseeded and diced
  • 1 Cup Panko Bread Crumbs
  • 2 Eggs
  • ΒΌ Cup Cilantro, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Cumin
  • 1 Tablespoon Southwest Chipotle Mrs. Dash
  • 1 Teaspoon Paprika
  • ½ Teaspoon Chili Powder
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 6 Buns, toasted
  • Leaf Lettuce
  • Tomatoes
  • Red Onion
  • Guacamole
  1. In a very large bowl combine all the ingredients for the turkey patties with your hands. Mix very well. Form into twelve patties. Freeze 6 for a later time. Grill the remaining 6 patties for 5-6 minutes on each side.
  2. To assemble burgers: Place each patty on a toasted bun. Top with lettuce, tomato, red onion, and guacamole. Serve immediately.
This makes 12 large patties. You can halve the recipe if you would like or freeze the remaining patties for another night.
