SOUTHWEST TURKEY BURGERS RECIPE: http://learntocook.com/drinks/how-to-make-southwest-turkey-burgers/

1 pound ground turkey breast
1 shallot, rough chopped
2 large garlic cloves, rough chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, seeds removed and rough chopped
½ small red pepper, rough chopped
½ cup cilantro leaves, stems removed
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground black pepper
Olive oil for pan

1. Using a food processor, combine shallot, garlic, peppers and cilantro and mix on pulse until it resembles having been minced. Be careful not to over mix as it will turn to mush!
2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground turkey with the vegetables as well as the salt, pepper, cumin and chili powder. Mix well with your hands.
3. Separate turkey mixture into four evenly sized balls and form into patties. Drizzle with a little bit of olive oil to prevent sticking if you’re grilling. Add olive oil to pan if you’re using the stove top.
4. Cook on medium high heat in a skillet, non-stick pan or grill on high for about 6 minutes per side.
5. Serve hot with your favorite condiments or on a bed of lettuce for a healthy and delicious dinner for four.
