Calories Per Serving


For the Fruit Salsa:

  • 1 nectarine, diced
  • 1 peach, peeled and diced
  • 2 Tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 Teaspoon chopped pickled jalapeño pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons minced red onion
  • Juice of 1 lime

For the Burgers:

  • 1 package PERDUE Fresh Ground Chicken (1 lb.) or PERDUE® Fresh Ground Turkey, 93% Lean (1 lb.)
  • 2 Teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 Cup plain bread crumbs


For the Fruit Salsa:

In a small bowl, blend all salsa ingredients; refrigerate.

For the Burgers:

In a medium bowl, blend burger ingredients and form mixture into four patties (patties will be wet).

Place on a lightly-oiled grill and cook over medium-high direct heat for about 10 minutes, flipping halfway through cooking time.

Burgers are done when a meat thermometer inserted into the sides reaches 165°F, or juices run clear and burgers bounce back to the touch.

Serve with salsa, with or without a roll.
