  • 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

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.
