Chipotle Burgers

No this isn't going to turn into a recipe site, but these were so good! If you like the chipotle flavor but not the spice remember to remove the seeds from the peppers and use more than one adding extra adobe sauce,

1 pound ground turkey
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1 chipotle chile in adobo sauce, finely chopped
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
4 slices mozzarella cheese
4 hamburger buns, split and toasted

Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil grate. Place the ground turkey, onion, cilantro, chipotle chile pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, seasoned salt, and black pepper in a mixing bowl; mix well. Form into 4 patties.
Cook the hamburgers on the preheated grill until the turkey is no longer pink in the center, about 4 minutes per side. Place the mozzarella slices on the patties 2 minutes before they are ready. Serve on the toasted buns.

Taco Soup

This is great when you need to throw something together quickly.

2 cans kidney beans (don't drain)
2cans black beans (don't drain)
1 can 7oz diced green chilis
1 cup frozen corn OR 1 can corn
1/2 onion diced (we like onion so go by your own taste)
1pkg taco seasoning
1pkg ranch dressing mix
1lb ground turkey OR beef

Cook ground meet as usual in a pan, then combine all ingredients in large pot stir well and simmer for 30-45 minutes stirring every 10 minutes or so. Judge the consistency, you made need to add a cup of water to the soup while simmering.

Great when eaten over tortilla chips and topped with grated cheese.
