Spicy Summer Supper

Turkey Fajita Burgers
This is an adapted Rachael Ray 30-Minute Meal. It's one of our favorites.

1 1/4 lbs ground turkey
Handful of fresh cilantro, chopped
1 palm-full McCormick’s Grill Master grill seasoning
½ palm-full ground chipotle chili powder

Mix together and form into 4 patties. Drizzle just a touch of extra virgin olive oil over the patties. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Add patties and cook for 6 minutes per side.

Seared Peppers and Onions:
2 green bell peppers, seeded and sliced into thin strips
1 medium onion, sliced into thin rings
1 cup salsa verde

Cook peppers and onions over high heat till tender. Add salsa and stir till warm.
Place burgers on wheat buns and top with cheese and seared peppers and onions.

Bacon and Black Bean Smash
4 slices bacon, cut into pieces
2 cans black beans
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 onion, diced
1 jalepeno, seeded and diced (optional)

Render bacon over medium heat. Add garlic, onion and jalepeno and cook, about 1-2 minutes. Drain 1st can of black beans and add to skillet. Mash with potato masher. Drain 2nd can of black beans and add to skillet. Don’t mash, stir until incorporated.

Delicious Corn Salad
2 cans whole kernel corn, drained
1 cup red onion, diced
1 green pepper, diced

1 package (2 cups) shredded sharp cheddar
1 cup Miracle Whip
