Tex Mex Burgers

Tex Mex Burgers

1-2 pounds lean ground turkey
1 chopped red, yellow or orange bell pepper or a combo, maybe half of 2
1 chopped small onion
1/2 cup to 1 cup quick oats (depends on how much meat you use)
1 tsp chili powder, 1/2 tsp if only using 1 pound of meat
1 tsp cumin (less if you do not like cumin or omit all together), use only 1/2 tsp if only using 1 pound of meat
Several dashes hot sauce ( I like a lot of dashes)
Few dashes of pepper

Combine all and form into patties.  Grill or cook in skillet with cooking spray.  If you cook in a skillet, cover and add small amounts of water as needed.  I like to partially freeze turkey patties, as they do fall apart easily.  If you put them in the refrigerator overnight, or in the freezer for an hour or 2, they will stay together.  If using the grill, make sure it is fully heated before putting turkey patties on it or they will stick and fall apart.
