Rainbow Turkey Burgers
(green chili spiced turkey, queso fresco, a rainbow of tomatoes)
Serves 6

Rainbow Tomato Topping
¼ cup chopped red tomatoes
¼ cup chopped yellow tomatoes
¼ cup chopped green tomatoes
¼ cup chopped orange tomatoes
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 lime, juiced
1 teaspoon flake sea salt
½ teaspoon pepper

1 ½ pound ground turkey, chilled
4 scallions, thinly sliced
2 (4 ounce) cans diced green chiles
¼ cup chopped cilantro
½ cup crumbled queso fresco
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon flake sea salt
½ teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon canola oil
6 burger buns, split and lightly toasted

1. Make the Topping: In 4 small bowls place each of the 4 colors of tomatoes. Divide garlic, olive oil, lime juice, salt and pepper between the 4 bowls. Stir each and set aside.
2. Mix Burgers: Add all the ingredients (except the canola oil) in a large mixing bowl and mix together with your hands (mixture will be wet). Form into 6 patties and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
3. Cook Burgers: Add the oil to a large ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Place patties in the skillet and cook until browned on the bottom. Turn over and cook until internal temperature registers 165º and no longer pink (about 5-6 minutes per side).

To Serve: Place a burger on each bun and top each with a color of the Rainbow Tomato Topping.
