A chopped jalapeno gives this interesting turkey burger a bit of a kick. Every bite is flavorful and cheesy. Top it off with ranch dressing sauce, and it's the best thing under a bun.

"This recipe was delicious! I did cut down on the amount of chili powder, however. I used about 1 tsp instead of 4! I also topped each burger with a sprinkle of colby jack cheese. It was a big hit with everyone:-) I will be making these again!"

"These burgers are very flavorful and a nice change of pace. I'm not a fan of jalapeño peppers, so I left them out. They tasted great!"

"These were great! However, next time I think I will cut the amount of chili powder to only 1 1/2 tsp instead of 4. It just seemed to be too much at times. Great burgers though!"

"This was very tasty. I made a couple of changes - finely shredded the cheddar, and mixed 2 tbsp of the oil in with the meat mixture."
