Jalapeno Turkey Burgers

A few weeks ago, Chelsea linked up this fabulous cheddar jalapeno turkey burger recipe and I knew I wanted to try it out asap! So, I made sure to pick up all the ingredients on my next grocery run and grilled up the deliciousness for Sunday football.


1 lb. extra lean ground turkey
1 jalapeno, seeded and diced
2 cloves of garlic, diced
1/4 cup of cilantro
1/3 cup of reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese
Garlic salt and black pepper to taste
Reduced fat sour cream
Burger buns


Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, making sure everything is evenly distributed. Don't be afraid to get your hands in there and get them dirty!

Form into patties, and chill in the fridge for about an hour so they don't fall apart on the grill.

Grill until fully cooked all the way through, serve on lightly toasted burger buns and top with guacamole and sour cream.
