This week we've been making lots of different Mexican dishes. One of our favorites was our turkey burgers! They were SO moist and jam-packed with flavor and best of all: they were loaded with nutritional goodies!!
We started off with a package of extra lean ground turkey. Then we added in (all to taste - go nuts with the ingredients as you see fit!) chopped fresh cilantro, ground cumin, chili powder, fresh minced garlic, finely chopped red onion, a pinch of milled flax seeds and whole no-salt added black beans (rinsed!). We hand-mixed the meat and formed it into approximately 4.5 burger patties.
|Yeah .. I'm still a cheese addict. But how GOOD does that look?!|
We topped our burgers with guacamole, spinach, our light tex mex cheese and salsa. The flavor we got in each bite was just outstanding!
Each patty was four points, bringing each of our burgers to around eleven glorious points each (can you believe that the bun was worth four points too?!)
Remember, if you need to make adjustments to your toppings to bring down the points value, go for it! Your burger is your masterpiece!
|Our yummy dish = nutritional and flavor powerhouses! I'll post the recipe for the corn and bean salsa another day :)|
