Okay, I know it's not summer anymore, but why do we have to retire our grill for the winter months?  I know I don't!  We grill year-round and LOVE it!  I came upon this recipe from Cariann at Sweet Basil and I have to say it's DELICIOUS!  There is a tiny little kick to it, but not enough to burn your mouth, more just give you that awesome Mexi flavor we all love! What could make it better you ask?  Top it with some freshly sliced avocado, garden tomatoes, Monterey Jack cheese and a dollop of sour cream.  Yes.  It was heavenly!!!

Thank you so much Cariann for this incredible recipe!  And I couldn't say it any better myself, "I pretty much think you are going to love it."...and we DO!

Recipe By Sweet Basil

1 Lb Lean Ground Turkey (I used lean ground beef and it was fantastic!)
4oz Diced Green Chiles
1 Clove of Garlic, minced
1 tsp Chili Powder
2 1/4 tsp Cumin
3/4 tsp Sea Salt
1/2 tsp fresh black pepper

Mix everything in a large mixing bowl and form into 4 patties. Cover and let rest in the refrigerator for 15-20 min.

Heat a grill and cook each burger for about 6 min on each side. Serve with whole wheat buns, tomato, avocado and monterey or pepperjack cheese and a smear of mayo (or sour cream)!
