Green Chile Mushroom Turkey Burgers with Chipotle Mayonnaise

Fabulous Turkey Burgers - Really!

When I was growing up we had hamburgers every Friday night.  
It was a fast and easy meal for my mom to make for a family of seven. 
So I have continued our family tradition for Friday night burgers.

In an effort to have a healthier diet we do not always have beef hamburgers.  I know that turkey does not sound very appetizing but it is very low fat.  Turkey just needs flavor and moisture. So the green chilies and house seasoning are for the flavor and the mushrooms add the moisture to the burgers.  The chipotle mayonaisse gives it the final layer of flavor (It's smoky, sweet with a little heat) - It's fabulous!

This burger was the most moist, tasty turkey burger I have ever eaten.  

The Burger Players!

In a large bowl mix 1.25 pounds of ground turkey, 1 cup finely chopped mushroom, 4 ounce can chopped green chilies drained, 1 teaspoon my house seasoning. 
(Yes, my house seasoning.  If you want to try it, write me a comment.   
Leave me your email and I will send you a sample).

Combine all ingredients throughly.

Form into four burgers about 1/2 inch thick. 
(I froze 2 burgers for next time).

Spray skillet with cooking spray and heat over meduim heat.  
Add burgers and cook for 4 minutes on the first side.  

Flip and cook for 6 minutes on the othter side.  
Add Monterrey Jack cheese, cover and cook for an additional 2 minutes.  

Chipotle salsa and Mayo!
Even though they misspelled the word!  Chipolte.

Mix 1/3 cup mayo with 1 1/2 tablespoon of chipotle salsa.
(If your not a mayonaisse fan, use sour cream or yogurt).

Combine mayo mixture and set in refrigerator until ready to assemble burger.

Yummmmm.  See how moist this is, it just melts in your mouth.  
This has a little heat to it but it will not burn like raw peppers, it's a good smoky heat.  
The taste is just unbelievable.  Try it even if your not a turkey fan, try it on a beef burger.  
It's even great to dip for your fries!

Happy Eating!
