Southwest Turkey Burgers

These have become a favorite in our house! They are healthy, full of flavor, easy to make!

3/4 cup Salsa (reserve 1/4 cup for sauce)
1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
3 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. ground cumin
3/4 tsp. sugar
3/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 cayenne pepper
1 pound extra lean ground turkey

1/4 cup sour cream
4-6 hamburger buns, depending on how big you like shape the burgers
1/2 cup torn endive
avocado slices
1 medium tomato, chopped

In a large bowl, combine 1/2 cup salsa, cheese and spices into the crumbled ground turkey. Mix well and shape into burgers.

If grilling burgers, coat grill rack with cooking spray. Grill covered over medium heat. Or, you can broil 4 inches from the heat for 7 minutes on each side, thermometer should read 165 degrees and juices run clear.

In a small bowl, combine sour cream and salsa. Place burgers on the buns and top with endive, avocados, chopped tomatoes and sour cream mixture.
