Turkey Burger!

We had a delicious dinner tonight - so fresh and healthy.

Southwestern Turkey Burgers with Black Bean and Corn Salsa
1.5 lbs ground extra lean turkey
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/4 cup cilantro, finely chopped
4 green onions, finely chopped
1/4 tsp each of ground coriander, cumin and chipotle chili powder
salt and pepper
splash of hot sauce

Mix all ingredients in a bowl and form patties, I got eight patties out of the mix. Heat a non stick man over medium heat and add a splash of olive oil. Fry 4 patties in the pan at a time for approximately 4-5 minutes per side.

Black Bean and Corn Salsa
1 cup corn, either boiled fresh corn cut off the cob or thawed frozen corn
14 oz tin black beans, rinsed well and drained
1/4 cup cilantro, finely chopped
1/4 cup red pepper, finely chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
1/8 tsp chipotle powder
juice of a lemon
salt and pepper

Mix all ingredients in a bowl, season with salt and pepper as needed.
I served it by putting a scoop of the salad on a plate, topping it with a burger. A spoonful of salsa, sour cream and some avocado slices on top. Delicious!
