Fiesta turkey burgers have just 4 basic ingredients but create a little flavor explosion in your mouth!
In a medium bowl, combine turkey, garlic, taco seasoning and shredded cheese and mix until just combined. Divide into 4 equal portions and shape into patties. (I make mine just under an inch thick.)
Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add oil.
Add burgers to pan and cook over medium-high heat for 5-6 minutes, then flip and continue cooking until done, about 5-6 minutes more. If you are adding sliced cheese to your burgers, you can do that when you flip them, so it melts.
Let rest for 5-10 minutes before serving. Then add desired toppings and enjoy!
I use ground turkey (93% lean) but you could substitute ground chicken or ground beef if you prefer.
I use homemade taco seasoning but you could substitute store-bought.
You can serve these turkey burgers in a regular bun or make a lettuce wrap if you want to be low-carb (and/or gluten-free).
