  • Total Time 35 Minutes
  • Spice Level Medium
  • Servings 24
  • Ingredients 8


  • 1.5 kg turkey breast mince
  • 1 or 2 jalapeño chilles, deseeded and chopped
  • 110g Mexicana cheese or Cheddar cheese, grated
  • 3/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 375g Old El Paso™ Thick ‘N’ Chunky Salsa, plus extra to serve
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 12 burger buns, halved and toasted
  • 12 slices tomato


  1. Preheat a bbq or grill to medium-high heat. Mix the turkey, chillies, cheese and pepper in a large bowl with the salsa until combined. Shape the mixture into 12 patties.
  2. Brush the patties with oil then place onto the bbq or under the grill and cook for 12-15 minutes, turning once, until cooked through and charred.
  3. Serve the burgers on the buns with tomato slices and extra salsa.


Cooking burgers over medium heat ensures juicy, well-cooked burgers; cooking them over high heat will cause burgers to shrink.
If you want a little less heat use standard chillies instead of jalapeño chillies.
