Smoky Chipotle Turkey Burgers with Cooling Creamy Salsa

Love to recommend good recipes when I find them and this one came from's recipe forum.

I made this and although the looks of it are a little offputting, it's a tasty, moist take on turkey burgers. I don't know that I'd call the sauce a salsa, but it's good anyway and a nice accompaniment.

It's from the blog It's shared by permission, since she doesn't mind if people link to her blog -- fact, she's hopeful that it might get her some more readers.

Her philosophy is pretty close to mind after my Dec. 27, 2011, gastric sleeve, and her's on Jan. 20, 2012.

"One of my challenges is that I really want to make this a lifestyle, and not make it feel like a diet. So I am trying to eat small portions of sensible food, but not deprive myself. This fits in really well with the fact that I LOVE to cook and also that I cook for my fiancee, who loves to eat!," she writes in the forum.

I was down to 217.4 yesterday.

  1. Wow Carol - You continue to be such a wonderful inspiration! So proud of you and happy for you. Suggestion for great snack - Dehydrated Kale with a bit of sea salt - dipped in homemade hummus makes it even better.

  2. Oh wow Cheri, I'll have to try that. Just happens that I have some kale in the frig that I was going to throw into a smoothie. Thanks so much for the nice comment!! Love, C
