Updated Aug 28, 2017

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground turkey or chicken
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1 can 4.5 ounces) Old El Paso™ chopped green chiles, drained
  • 4 slices (1 ounce each) Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeño peppers
  • 4 hamburger buns, split

Steps

  • 1
    Mix turkey, barbecue sauce and chilies. Shape mixture into 4 patties, each about 3/4 inch thick.
  • 2
    Set oven control to broil. Place patties on rack in broiler pan. Broil with tops about 3 inches from heat 10 to 14 minutes, turning once, until turkey is no longer pink in center. About 1 minute before burgers are done, top each with cheese slice. Broil until cheese is melted.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Keep up the southwestern flavor theme with some veggies on the side. Give these a try: radishes, jicama sticks, cherry tomatoes, green or ripe olives.
  • tip 2
    Want the Texas taste but afraid of the heat? Tame these tasty burgers by using half the chopped chilies for the burgers. Stir the remaining chopped chilies into half a jar of mild salsa, and serve chips with your own versions of hot and mild salsas.
  • tip 3
    Grilling Directions: Grill patties covered 4 to 6 inches from medium heat 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.
