Diabetic Mexican Burger

This diabetic Mexican burger recipe was delicious. We are a big fans of spice in our household, so it was warmly welcomed at the dinner table. It only took about 12 minutes to prepare and not that long to cook. A little bit of salsa, tortilla chips, cumin, and chili powder makes this a homemade decadent turkey burger.
