Though many people think Cinco de Mayo is Mexican Independence Day, the actual date for that celebration is September 16. But don’t let a little cross-cultural confusion get in the way of a good excuse for a party!
Sure, you could celebrate with a big skillet of nachos, a cheesy casserole of enchiladas, a platter of tacos, or a pitcher of mango margaritas. But what better way to commemorate this uniquely Mexican-American holiday than with a dish that celebrates Mexico’s influence on the American palate: Mexican Turkey Burgers. With olives, jalapenos, garlic, and spices mixed into the burger and a topping of avocados, olives, and salsa, these piquant patties will be the hit of your Cinco de Mayo fiesta.
