2 cups water

1½ pounds sweet potatoes, peeled, and cut into 2-inch pieces

2 cloves garlic, minced

1½ teaspoons dried oregano, crushed

1 teaspoon chili powder

½ teaspoon ground cumin

¼ teaspoon salt

1 (15 ounce) can golden hominy, rinsed and drained

Chopped fresh cilantro

Lime wedges


Prep 15 m

Ready In 10 h 15 m

Combine vegetable broth, the water, sweet potatoes, onion, garlic, oregano, chili powder, cumin, and salt in a 3½- or 4-quart slow cooker (see Tip). Stir in hominy, beans, and poblano pepper. Cover and cook on Low for 10 to 12 hours. Use a potato masher to coarsely mash the sweet potatoes. Sprinkle individual servings with cilantro. Serve with lime wedges.

Tips: To roast a poblano chile pepper, preheat oven to 425°F. Cut the pepper in half lengthwise; remove stem, seeds, and membranes. Place pepper halves, cut sides down, on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until the pepper is charred and very tender. Bring foil up around pepper and fold edges together to enclose. Let stand about 15 minutes or until cool enough to handle. Use a sharp knife to loosen edges of the skin; gently pull off the skin in strips and discard.

Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.

Equipment: 3½- or 4-quart slow cooker

Mesquite Grilled Turkey Burgers

Ingredients (4 burgers)

For the burger patties

  • 20 oz ground turkey
  • 1/4 cup non-fat Greek yogurt
  • 3 Tbsp finely diced roasted red bell pepper
  • 2 Tbsp finely chopped flat leaf parsley or cilantro
  • 2 Tbsp finely chopped shiitake mushroom
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and finely minced
  • 1 green onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp Lawry's Seasoned Salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper

Everything else

  • 4 whole wheat burger buns
  • 4 slices pepper jack cheese
  • 1 avocado, peeled and sliced
  • Thin sliced lettuce, tomato, and red onion


  1. Mix together all patty ingredients until thoroughly blended. Divide into 4 equal balls and form into patties (roughly 1/3rd lb each) about 3/4" thick and 4-5 inches in diameter. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat a charcoal grill to 400f (medium high). It should be at this heat for at least 5 minutes prior to grilling to get your grates pre-heated. Immediately prior to grilling, add 4-5 Kingsford Smokehouse Style Mesquite Briquetes or 1/2 cup of mesquite wood chips.
  3. Grill the burgers until the bottom cooks through and juices start to pool on top of the patties, about 5 minutes. (Note: I rotate my patties 1/4 turn at 3 minutes to get a cross hatch pattern.)
  4. Flip and cook until the patties reach an internal temperature of 165f, about 3-5 minutes. Top with a slice of pepper jack cheese in the last minute or two.
  5. Remove and rest on a raised rack and meanwhile toast your buns on the grill.
  6. Assemble the burgers with lettuce, tomato, avocado, and red onion.
