Mexican Turkey Burger

Mexican Turkey Burger Krista Kooks 2 The sous chef and I are VERY excited to share this recipe!  We both were so surprised by the flavor and tastiness of this recipe.

I’ve recently started reading Bethenny Frankel’s Naturally Thin in order to possibly change my whole way of thinking on how I nourish my body.  I took a browse on her website and found this recipe.  We were so impressed with the flavor of this turkey burger, and my new bosses :) thought it looked super yummy the next day when I brought in my leftovers for lunch.  The sous chef and I were discussing, post-dinner, about how we didn’t even realize that we were eating turkey as we ate this dinner.

We also dressed this burger with wheat buns, mango pico de gallo, and romaine lettuce.  No sauces or cheese involved.

I seriously SERIOUSLY think  you need to add this to your meal plans this week or next.  You won’t be disappointed.


1 lb. ground turkey meat (white if ultra lowfat, dark for more flavor, a mixture for a combination of elements)
¼ red pepper, chopped
¼ yellow pepper, chopped small (if you only have one color, that is fine)
½ tsp cumin
½ tsp. chili powder
Dash of tobasco
Dash of Worcestershire Salt and pepper


Combine and broil until cooked and center isn't pink at all.


  1. I just caught a sale on ground turkey and stocked up! Thanks for a fresh idea on what to do with it!

  2. I can't wait to try this! This sounds like a good way to undo the damage I did today of snacking with cookie dough (I kept running back to the fridge for a spoonful!)... it was really good though!

  3. Krista, we love turkey burgers, I just throw them on my George Foreman grill with pepper then on a whole wheat bun. Can't wait to try this one!
