Jalapeno, Lime, and Smoked Mozzarella Turkey Burger
1½ pound ground turkey
1 jalapeno or 2 Tbsp finely diced jalapeno*
Juice of 2 limes and zest** of 1
1 Tbsp black pepper
1 Tbsp reduced-sodium Worcestershire sauce
4 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
¾ 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 5 ingredients plus 2 Tbsp of olive oil. Make equal size burger patties and lightly brush with remainder 2 Tbsp of oil. Cook for 5-7 minutes, flipping once, or until an internal temperature of 165° F is reached. Top each 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.)
