- 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
- 3⁄4 cup chopped zucchini
- 1⁄2 cup chopped onion
- 1⁄2 cup chopped red bell pepper
- 1 1⁄4 lbs 95% lean ground turkey or 1 1⁄4 lbs ground beef
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons taco seasoning mix
- 3⁄4 cup shredded reduced-fat monterey jack cheese (or nonfat cheese) or 3⁄4 cup Mexican blend cheese (or nonfat cheese)
- 6 light hamburger buns or 6 multi-grain hamburger buns
- 1⁄4 cup salsa (or mix half and half) or 1⁄4 cup ketchup, plus (or mix half and half)
- 2 tablespoons salsa (or mix half and half) or 2 tablespoons ketchup (or mix half and half)
- 6 slices red onions or 6 slices sweet white onions
- 6 slices tomatoes
- 6 lettuce leaves
- Place the mushrooms, zucchini, onion, and red bell pepper in the bowl of a food processor and process until the vegetables are finely chopped.
- Place the vegetables, ground meat, and taco seasoning mix in a medium-sized bowl and mix thoroughly.
- Shape the mixture into six 4-inch patties.
- Grill the burgers over medium coals or cook under a broiler for about 6 minutes on each side, until the internal temperature of the patties reaches 165 degrees (160 degrees for ground beef) and the meat is no longer pink inside.
- (To retain moisture, avoid pressing down on the patties as they cook.).
- Alternatively, coat a large nonstick skillet or griddle with cooking spray and cook the burgers over medium heat for about 5 minutes per side.
- Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of the cheese over each burger, cover the grill, and cook for another minute, just until the cheese is melted.
- Place each burger in a bun and top with some of the salsa or ketchup, onion, tomato, and lettuce.
