I just tried this recipe this evening. Delicious! I used a orange bell pepper. I guess you could also use a yellow one.

I was delighted with the results. I served it with sliced tomato, onion and a slice of Gouda cheese on a burger bun. I took the 3 burgers I had left and froze them for later use. Enjoy!

Makes 4


1 pound ground turkey

1 egg

1 jalapeño or other hot green chili, seeded and minced

3 Tbls minced red bell pepper

2 Tbls minced green onion

1 tsp ground dried chilies

1/4 tsp ground cumin

salt & pepper to taste

olive oil for frying

1 cup guacamole, recipe to follow

Combine turkey with egg and mix well. Use your hands. Add remaining ingredients except the guacamole. Mix well and form into burgers. In a heated pan with a Tbls spoon of olive oil, cook burgers until browned on both sides and thoroughly cooked through. Place on a bun and add tomato, onion, cheese and top with guacamole.

juice of 1 lime

1/2 cup chopped tomato
