When it comes to parties and celebrations, I always tend towards Mexican cuisine. As my dad likes to say, ‘Mexican food is fun.’ He says that because he knows it is not always the healthiest and is often greasy, something you would eat with a drink at a bar or a party. There is time for pleasure food, and then there’s the other time to eat healthy.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground lean turkey
  • ½ medium onion, chopped
  • 2 egg whites
  • ½ yellow bell pepper, diced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil, or as needed

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Combine turkey, onion, egg whites, bell pepper, jalapeno, tomato paste, garlic, paprika, and salt in a bowl. Form into about 18 patties.
  2. 2 Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Coat bottom with oil. Pan-fry the patties in batches until no longer pink in the centers, 3 to 4 minutes per side.
