Mexican Fiesta Taco Turkey Burgers

The weekend is finally here at last! TGIF! Not too much going on this weekend but visiting family and catching up. I have always loved the weekends even when I don't have anything planned but today will be a busy one. With that being said, these burgers are perfect to make because they don't require a lot of time to prepare.You just throw a few ingredients together and grill! So simple! Sometimes what I like to do is buy a 3 lb package of ground turkey or beef and divide my raw portions into 6 patties and make 3 different turkey burger recipes with two patties for each recipe. Then I would wrap the patties individually in saran wrap and place them in a freezer Ziploc bag. Of course, don't forget to label the patties! Then when I want a particular patty, I just take it out directly from the freezer and grill! Dinner in minutes!

I know this particular recipe is nothing fancy, but it's really easy and quite delicious. This recipe uses taco seasoned meat with the addition of green and red peppers. Tomorrow is the last day of my turkey burger week. I will be sharing the BBQ Stuffed Turkey Burger recipe which is my personal favorite. I hope you will stop on by!
