Fajita Turkey Burgers

I tried this recipe today...got it from Cooking Light magazine. It is really delicious!

Since I am allergic to gluten, I used gluten-free Kinnikinnick white bread for the crumbs and ate it on toasted Kinnikinnick brown bread (still haven't gotten to the health food store to get more of their delicious hamburger buns). I'm allergic to avocado, so I just used regular store-bought salsa. I also topped it with cheese because to me it's not a burger without it! :)

I just cooked one and froze the rest.

Fajita Turkey Burgers

1/4 Cup bottled tomatillo salsa
2 Tablespoons chopped avocado
1 Tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
2 (1-oz.) slices white bread
Cooking Spray (Pam)
1/2 Cup finely chopped onion
1/2 Cup finely chopped red bell pepper
1/2 Cup finely chopped green bell pepper
2 tsp. fajita seasoning, divided*
1/4 tsp. salt, divided
1 Tablespoon tomato paste
1 lb. ground turkey
1 egg white
4 (1 1/2 oz.) whole wheat hamburger buns, toasted

1. Combine tomatillo salsa, chopped avocado, and cilantro; set aside.
2. Place bread in a food processor until crumbs measure 1 Cup.
3. Heat a large nonstock skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add onion and bell peppers, saute 5 min. or until tender. Stir in 1/2 tsp. fajita seasoning and 1/2 tsp. salt. Cool.
4.Combine breadcrumbs, onion mixture, remaining 1 1/2 tsp. fajita seasoning, remaining 1/8 tsp. salt, tomato paste, turkey, and egg white in a large bowl. Using damp hands, divide turkey mixture into 4 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/4" thick patty. Heat pan over medium heat. Recoat pan with cooking spray. Add patties; cook 4 minutes on each side or until done. Place 1 patty on bottom half of each bun. Top each serving with 1 1/2 Tablespoons salsa mixture, top with remaining halves of buns.

Yield: 4 servings (4 burgers).

*I used Mexican seasoning that I had instead. I'm sure you can find a fajita seasoning recipe online.

ENJOY!! I sure did...

Not gluten free; you could use gluten free bread and buns instead, of course. Not low carb unless you leave out the bread entirely.
