Contributed By: Parker


1 tablespoon butter
1-1/2 pounds ground turkey
1 small onion, chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup juice from pickled jalapeno slices
2 teaspoons minced pickled jalapeno slices
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1-1/2 teaspoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 sesame seed hamburger buns, split


1. Heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add turkey, onion, fresh jalapeno and garlic; cook until turkey is no longer pink and vegetables are tender, 8 to 10 minutes, breaking up turkey into crumbles.
2. Stir in ketchup, jalapeno juice, pickled jalapenos, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce and seasonings. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 15 to 20 minutes to allow flavors to blend, stirring occasionally. Serve on buns.
