Turkey isn’t just for November. (Green Chili Turkey Burgers)

Monday is the big kick off day for Shelly’s 10 Day Kick Sugar Challenge. Got a great group of folks together who are learning all kinds of things about sugar and how it is the real enemy isn’t fat but it’s sugar when your trying to loose weight. Also that sugar can mess with everything from hormones , diabetes, cancer, heart disease infertility, impotence and even depression.

One thing I admit that I love is a good greasy cheeseburger with bacon. There is nothing wrong with a good cheeseburer to be honest, if you hae one every now and then.  The issue usually lies in the sugar in the white bun, the fries and the soda (diet or not) that people wash a good burger down with.  I wanted a burger but the idea of making my own burger, skipping the bun and cheese while on the sugar kick, got me sort of sad. But this easy to make turkey burger is full on flavor, can be put in a large piece of lettuce as a wrap or even put on top of a salad and taken to work as leftovers.   I served it with a nice corn & tomato salad that is super easy to toss together while you got your burgers on the grill or ahead of time and chill.
