I love ground turkey, but I had to come up with a way to keep the lean meat moist and flavorful. Tex Mex flavors evoke memories of home in South Texas. And when my grandkids liked this burger, I knew I had a winning combo! I'll grill up both mini and regular burger patties. The girls love Mimi's "baby burgers" and these made as sliders are their fave! For the heartier appetites of the "real men" I grill thick, juicy patties that make everyone smile. Even the men who only eat beef in my family will devour this turkey burger! And I just feel good serving them.

Yum! A really great turkey burger with tons of veggies, terrific flavor and a scrumptious cilantro aioli! There's no way your team's not winning when you serve this one... The Test Kitchen
