Put a southwestern spin on your next burger night with these 5-ingredient cheese- and chili-topped sandwiches.
pound ground turkey or chicken
cup barbecue sauce
can (4.5 ounces) Old El Paso™ chopped green chiles, drained
slices (1 ounce each) Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeño peppers
hamburger buns, split
Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat.
Mix turkey, barbecue sauce and chilies. Shape mixture into 4 patties, each about 1 inch thick.
Grill patties covered 4 to 6 inches from medium coals 14 to 16 minutes, turning once, until turkey is no longer pink in center. About 1 minute before burgers are done, top each with cheese slice. Grill until cheese is melted. Serve on buns.
Whole-grain hamburger buns give you more fiber than white. Look for the words “whole wheat flour” on the label; many “wheat” breads are simply white bread with added color.
Turn up the heat by using 2 or 3 chopped fresh jalapeño chilies instead of the canned chilies.
