Lightened-up version of a cheese-stuffed gourmet Southwest burger. Just as tasty, but better for the waistline. Diabetic Exchanges: 3 starch and 2 lean meat. This came fromn Taste Of Home. I have not tried this just posting for safe keeping.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, coarsely mash beans. Stir in the onion, corn, bread crumbs, chilies, Worcestershire sauce and seasonings. Crumble beef and turkey over mixture and mix well. Shape into eight patties. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Combine mayonnaise and salsa; refrigerate until serving.
  2. Coat grill rack with cooking spray before starting the grill. Grill burgers, covered, over medium heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 165 and juices run clear.
  3. Top with cheese; cover and grill 1-2 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Serve on buns with toppings if desired.
