Notes

Always cook turkey to an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.

Ingredients

  • 1 32-ounce package turkey burgers, such as JENNIE-O® Jalapeño Jack Turkey Burgers
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 2½ Cups cups onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 Cup medium salsa, such as HERDEZ® Salsa Casera
  • ⅓ Cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 6 buns or pieces flatbread, such as Flatout® Foldit® Flat Bread
  • 1 Cup baby spinach or arugula leaves
  • 6 Ounces guacamole, such as WHOLLY GUACAMOLE® classic dip

Directions

Cook the turkey burgers according to package directions. Always cook turkey to well done, an internal temperature of 165 degrees F as measured by a meat thermometer.

In a large skillet sprayed with cooking spray, cook the onions over medium heat or until softened and lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Add the salsa, cilantro, and honey, and stir. Cook until hot, about 2 minutes.

Spoon some of the onion mixture onto the bottom section of each flatbread. Add the turkey burger, spinach, and some guacamole. Replace sandwich tops and serve.

Jalapeño Shopping Tip

How hot is that chile pepper? Fresh peppers get hotter as they age; they will achieve a more reddish hue and sometimes develop streaks in the skin.

Jalapeño Cooking Tip

There are 60 varieties of chile peppers, many of which are used in Mexican cooking. Handle them with care. When handling the spicier kinds, gloves are recommended. Always wash your hands with soap and warm water before touching your eyes.
