My friend makes these burgers and I thought I'd adapt it a bit and share it with everyone! They are healthy, full of protein, and very tasty! You don't even need to add salt!
Turkey Tex Mex Burgers (serves 6)
1 pound ground lean turkey or chicken
1/2 cup canned black beans (drained and rinsed)
3/4 cup canned corn (drained and rinsed)
4 tablespoons BBQ sauce
1/2 cup cooked quinoa (red or white)
1 cup finely chopped cilantro
Combine ingredients together in a bowl and divide into 6 patties. Mixture will be sticky so wet your hands before making the patties. Grill, pan fry, or broil burgers for about 5-6 minutes on each side. Enjoy with some more of your favorite BBQ sauce with some roasted or grilled veggies for a delicious healthy meal.
