Flavored with taco seasoning and cilantro and topped with salsa and sour cream, these Southwestern turkey burgers are so good. I round out the menu with roasted corn on the cob and deep fried pita pieces topped with cinnamon. –Nancy Bourget, Round Rock, Texas


  • 1-1/4 pounds ground turkey
  • 1 envelope reduced-sodium taco seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon dried cilantro flakes
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 4 hamburger buns, split
  • 4 lettuce leaves


  1. In a large bowl, combine the turkey, taco seasoning and cilantro; shape into four patties. Grill, covered, over medium heat or broil 4-6 in. from the heat for 5 minutes on each side.
  2. Sprinkle cheese over burgers; grill 2-3 minutes longer or until a thermometer reads 165° and juices run clear. Combine sour cream and salsa. Serve burgers on buns with sour cream mixture and lettuce.
