Turkey & Black Bean Burgers with Avocado-Corn Salsa

I was looking for a good, quick dinner idea one night and remembered I had this recipe on file for a black bean cake. What I ended up with is a little more of a burger because I added ground turkey meat, but add some of that salsa and you’re gonna love it with or without the meat. Also, I should mention that the original recipe called for shredded pepper jack cheese (1 1/2 cups) to be mixed into the black bean mixture, which I didn’t do, but that sounds like an awesome addition!

Turkey & Black Bean Burgers

1 lb ground turkey (or chicken or beef)

1 (15 oz.) can black beans, drained

2 cloves garlic, pressed or minced

1 T taco seasoning mix

1/2 cup Panko

1 large egg, slightly beaten

Salt & Pepper, to taste

1. Combine all ingredients using hands and form into patties.

2. Heat a little bit of oil in a skillet over medium high heat.

3. Gently place patties into hot skillet. They will be fragile. Allow to sear on one side so they will flip easily.

4. Cook through.

5. Serve with salsa.

Avocado – Corn Salsa

avocado, skinned and diced

1/2 cup frozen corn, thawed

1 tomato, diced

1 tsp fresh cilantro, chopped fine
