RECIPE: Turkey Bean Burrito Burgers

We're testing out some burger recipes featured on the Food Network website by Rachael Ray (and maybe a few others!)  This week we tried her Turkey Bean Burrito Burgers

They were really good.  I doubled the recipe and made 8 large burgers and 2 small burgers.  I forgot turkey doesn't shrink as much as ground beef, so the burgers ended up being HUGE!  But that's okay.  The extras will be great for my husband's evening snack at work this week.  

This is how I changed it up:

Turkey Bean Burrito Burgers
2 lbs ground turkey
2 cups pre-cooked, cold rice
2 cups Great Northern Beans (pre-cooked last month for OAMC)
2 Tablespoon chili powder
2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1 Tablespoon Montreal Chicken Seasoning (the recipe suggested Montreal Steak seasoning but since I had the chicken variety, that's what I used)
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
mock-a-mole (wish I had a real avocado for guacamole)

Mix ground turkey, rice, beans, chili powder, cumin, coriander, Montreal seasoning and oil.  Form patties and grill until done.  Serve on buns with lettuce, salsa and guacamole.

This looks delish! Ya know a Burger Bash would be a really good idea for a linky party. (Just a thought.) I'm getting ready to post my husbands signature burger later this week. It's all his creation, but worthy of a post. Happy Grilling!

These look like a great way to eat a different kind of burger - and I think I'll whip up the mock-a-mole too!! Thanks for the dinner ideas :)
