3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 tablespoons lime juice

1/2 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed, drained, and lightly mashed

1 cup frozen corn kernels, thawed


1/4 cup olive oil

1 1/4 pounds ground turkey

1/2 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed, drained, and lightly mashed

1 cup crushed tortilla chips

2 teaspoons The Lady and Sons House Seasoning, recipe follows

1 tablespoon chile powder

1 tablespoon ground cumin

The Lady and Sons House Seasoning:

1 cup salt

1/4 cup pepper

1/4 cup garlic powder

  1. For the salsa: In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients and stir them together. Cover the container and chill the salsa until ready to use.
  2. For the burgers: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. In a large bowl, combine the turkey, beans, tortilla chips, House Seasoning, chile powder, and cumin. Use your hands to form the mixture into 8 equal sized patties, working in batches if necessary. Cook the patties until no longer pink in the middle, 4 to 5 minutes per side.
