Mexican Turkey Burgers

We eat very little red meat at our house- or at least try to. I love these turkey burgers for a quick easy dinner. I serve them with a salad with sliced avocados. These have tons of flavor. I use the salsa purchased in the produce section of most grocery stores- it is fresh, and so good!

Mexican Turkey Burger:
1 pound ground turkey breast
4 T chopped scallion (white part only)
2 t jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced(optional)
2 t minced garlic
3 t chili powder
1 t ground cumin
pinch of salt
fresh salsa

Combine all ingredients except salsa. Mix thoroughly. Shape into patty. Broil for 4-5 on each side until cooked through. Top with salsa

(I cook mine in a skillet- with the lid on to keep them juicy, and brown on each side until cooked- just a few minutes on each side should do it.)
