Grilled Cheese Stuffed Turkey Burgers

Take a break from traditional burgers. Lots of spicy chiles, Monterey Jack cheese and salsa mix with ground turkey breast for burgers to serve to a crowd.


12 burgers


3 pounds ground turkey breast
1 or 2 jalapeño chiles, seeded, chopped
1 cup diced Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeño chile peppers
3/4 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 cups Old El Paso® Thick 'n Chunky salsa
12 hamburger buns, split, toasted
12 slices tomato
additional Old El Paso® Thick 'n Chunky salsa, if desired


Heat gas or charcoal grill. In large bowl, mix turkey, chiles, cheese, pepper and 1 1/2 cups salsa. Shape mixture into 12 patties, each about 3/4 inch thick.

Place patties on grill. Cover grill; cook over medium heat 12 to 15 minutes, turning once, until thermometer inserted in center of patties reads 165°F (74°C).

Serve burgers on buns with tomato slices and additional salsa.

Estimated Time

Preparation Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Additional Information

Cooking burgers over medium heat ensures juicy, well-cooked burgers; cooking them over high heat will cause burgers to shrink.

When you want to use chiles with a little less heat, choose poblano or Anaheim chiles instead of jalapeño chiles.
