Green Chili Cheeseburgers (Perdue)

I knew these recipes involving Purdue Ground Turkey were old, but it is dawning on me just how old they must be. In 2014, salsa is as mainstream as ketchup. But every single time the word appears in this recipe, it is surrounded in scare quotes, as if “salsa” were an exotic word that no one knew.

The recipe also includes a side dish and salad suggestion. Perdue wanted to be your one-stop shopping destination for all things ground turkey.

1 package (1 pound) ground turkey
1 can (4 ounces) mild chopped green chiles
¼ cup minced onion
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon chili powder
¼ teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoons chili sauce or ketchup
4 – 5 slices Monterey Jack cheese
4 – 5 10-inch flour tortillas

“Salsa” and sour cream for garnish

Set aside cheese, tortillas, and garnish.

In a mixing bowl combine all other ingredients. Form into 4 – 5 patties and cook until cooked completely through. Place cheese on burgers during the last 2 – 3 min. of cooking time. Serve burgers wrapped in warm flour tortillas. Top with your favorite “salsa” and sour cream.
