Southwestern Turkey Burgers
A different twist on the turkey burger. Use lean ground turkey and keep the burger moist by adding black beans. Great for indoor or outdoor grilling."Very good flavor. Next time I think I will drain the chilies though bc the patties were moist and tried to fall apart, still turned out great!" - Robmaria

Southwestern Turkey Burgers Preparation
In large bowl mash rinsed and drained black beans. Add turkey, diced green chiles, onion, cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper to the balck beans. Use hands to mix ingredients together. Do not over work the meat, mix only until even mixture of ingredients. Divide meat into 6 patties, shape.
Adjust grill to medium heat. If grill cooks hot, use medium low. Wipe grill rack with oil and put burgers on to grill. Grill 4-7 minutes on each side, depending on how thick you made your burgers. Turn once. Use meat thermometer if in doubt as to doneness. Juices will run clear.
My family also likes to add pepper jack cheese to their burgers. Salsa would also be a great topping for these burgers. We do not eat many bread products in our house, so we forgo the bun. Instead we serve these burgers with a southwestern chopped green salad, with: bell pepper, green onion, corn, tomato, lettuce and baby spinach. Choice of dressing up to you, but we use a lite salsa ranch.
