  • 1 cup mild salsa, strained & divided
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped shallots
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 tablespoon chipotle-(or hotter if desired) flavored hot sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3 gloves of garlic, minced

Mix ground turkey, 1/2 of the salsa, shallots, cilantro, 3 tablespoons oil, hot sauce, cumin, garlic salt, and pepper in large bowl.

Form turkey mixture into four patties.

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in large nonstick skillet or griddle over medium-high heat. When hot add burgers; cook until brown, about 3 minutes per side.

Reduce heat to low. Saute until burgers are cooked through, about 4 minutes, turning occasionally.

Place roll bottoms on 4 plates. Place burgers on roll bottoms. Top each burger with 2 tablespoons of remaining salsa, lettuce leaves and top with roll tops.
