Delicious! Loved it! Great to eat without a bun for a nice, low carb meal!

My entire family, including a 4 year old enjoyed this reciepe. We did make a couple of changes, the green chilies were grilled and placed on top and we used a spicy pepper jack cheese. The cum...

This is an amazing tasting turkey burger!I don't think I'm ever going to eat a beef burger again! And definitely not a plain one!!! Thank you!
