Salsa Cheeseburgers

1 package (about 1 1/4 pounds) PERDUE? FIT 'N EASY? Fresh Ground
Turkey Breast Meat, Ground Turkey, or Ground Chicken
1 cup Spicy Salsa (recipe follows) or prepared tomato salsa, well
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
8 slices French or Italian bread or 4 hamburger rolls
Shredded lettuce
Avocado slices
Red onion slices
Additional Spicy Salsa (optional)
Lime or lemon wedges (optional)

Prepare outdoor grill for cooking or preheat broiler.

In medium bowl, combine ground turkey, 1 cup salsa, cilantro and salt. Form turkey mixture into 4 burgers.

Grill or broil burgers 5 to 6 inches from heat source 5 minutes on each side or until no longer pink in center. Just before removing burgers from grill, sprinkle cheese over tops; cover and cook about 1 minute or until cheese melts.

Grill or broil bread lightly, if desired. Serve burgers between bread slices, topping burgers with choice of mayonnaise, shredded lettuce, avocado slices, red onion slices and/or additional salsa. Garnish with lime or lemon wedges.

Spicy Salsa: In medium bowl, combine 1 pound ripe plum tomatoes (about 5), seeded and finely chopped, 1/4 cup minced white or yellow onion, 1 fresh hot green chili pepper, seeded and minced or 2 tablespoons canned chopped green chilies, 1 garlic clove, minced, 2 tablespoons lime juice, 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro (coriander) sprigs (optional) and salt to taste.

Cover and refrigerate 30 minutes or up to 24 hours before serving; longer storage can reduce salsa's fresh flavor and texture. Makes about 1 cup.

Salsa Tip: Habaneros are the hottest chiles in the world! Bright orange and looking like a tiny bell pepper, their flavor is delicious, if used sparingly.
