Cilantro Turkey Burgers with Chipotle Ketchup

  • 1/3 cup dry breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro or 1/3 cup if you love the flavor of cilantro like me.
  • 1/4 cup (1 ounce) shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 pound ground turkey (I like it to be very lean)
  • Cooking spray
  • 1  chile and 1 teaspoon adobo sauce from a (7-ounce) can chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 4 (2 1/2-ounce) whole wheat hamburger buns
  • 4 red leaf lettuce leaves
  1. Combine first 6 ingredients in a large bowl. Divide turkey mixture into 4 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/3-inch-thick patty.
  2. Heat a large grill pan or large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add turkey patties, and cook 5 minutes on each side or until done.
  3. Remove 1 chile and 1 teaspoon adobo sauce from can. Reserve remaining chiles and sauce for another use. Mince the chile, omit the seeds if you want less heat. Combine chile, adobo sauce, and ketchup.
  4. Place 1 patty on bottom half of each bun; top each patty with 1 tablespoon chipotle ketchup and 1 lettuce leaf. Cover with top halves of buns.

Yield:  4 servings (serving size: 1 burger)
