March Recipe Challenge. You select what kind of ground meat you want to use (beef, chicken, turkey or even venison), and you control the heat level with the salsa (mild, medium or hot). This recipe makes 4 burgers, and can be multiplied or halved as needed.
1 1/2 lb ground meat (beef, turkey, chicken or venison)
1/2 cup Pepper Dog Salsa (your choice of Mild, Medium or Hot)
Salt and Black Pepper, optional
4 slices of cheese, optional (pepper jack works well)
4 slices of tomato, optional
4 lettuce leaves, optional
Combine the ground meat and salsa in a bowl, season with salt & pepper to taste if desired, and mix well. Shape into 4 patties about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Spray your grill rack (or non-stick skillet, if cooking indoors) with olive oil spray, and then fire up the grill (or heat the skillet) over medium-high heat. Cook the burgers about 5 minutes on each side until well done (if beef or venison) or until the internal temperature on an instant-read thermometer reaches 170 degrees (for chicken or turkey). You can add a slice of cheese if desired towards the end of the cooking time. Serve the burgers on hamburger buns, topped with your favorite toppings.
