Jalapeno, Lime and Smoked Mozzarella Turkey Burgers

Burgers you—and your kidneys—will love

1-1/2 pound ground turkey

1 jalapeno or 2 tablespoons finely diced jalapeno

Juice of 2 limes and zest of 1

1 tablespoon black pepper

1 tablespoon reduced-sodium Worcestershire sauce

4 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

3/4 cup shredded smoked mozzarella cheese

6 hamburger buns

Preheat outdoor grill. (A George Foreman® grill may also be used.) In a medium size bowl, mix the first five ingredients, plus 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Make equal size burger patties and lightly brush with remaining 2 tablespoons of oil. Cook for five to seven minutes, flipping once, or until an internal temperature of 165º F is reached. Top each burger with an equal amount of cheese and melt in a toaster oven or in oven on broil. Serve on a toasted bun. (If using George Foreman® grill, once cooked, unplug the grill and add cheese to the burger. Leave the grill open and allow the cheese to slightly melt.) Serves 6
