Tex Mex Turkey Burgers

I think we’re finally out of the woods when it comes to winter weather.

It’s mid-March, the stinky Bradford Pear trees are starting to bloom, and the rains are coming. I guess a slow-moving rain storm will park over us Monday into Tuesday. If that doesn’t scream spring, I don’t know what does.

To herald in the new season, I’ve been putting a spring into my step–er, food. More fresh veg, fresh herbs, more grilling. Less soups, stews and the like. You know how it works.

This recipe is one I’ve been eye-balling for quite sometime now. Of course, I can’t eat the buns, but that doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy a good burger. This one is a little different, what with the taco seasoning mixed in and the salsa-crema to serve it with. It was just the right recipe I was looking for during a sunny & warm weekend.

I made my own taco seasoning for this since it’s so easy to DIY. Here’s all you need:

  • Chili powder
  • Cumin
  • Dried oregano
  • Dried cilantro
  • Onion powder
  • Garlic powder
  • salt & pepper

Mix that all together for a great, homemade taco seasoning. I’ll have all the measurements down below.

Enjoy!
