Recipe: Chipotle Spice Turkey Burgers

It’s almost grilling season, but you can definitely make these indoors.  These slightly spicy, super flavorful burgers are good enough to go bunless.  I served these with a homemade avocado cream (recipe coming soon, need to retest!), roasted sweet potatoes and greens.  Try with veggies or over a salad with hummus or avocado for a complete meal.IMG_0041

Makes 4, 4oz burgers

  • 1 pound ground turkey meat
  • 1-2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp tomato paste
  • 1/4 tsp salt


Combine all ingredients in a bowl, thoroughly combine ground meat until spices are mixed in evenly.  Portion meat into four equal burgers and shape.  On a grill, grill pan or non-stick pan, heat on medium high and spray with non-stick spray of choice.  Add burgers to the pan and cook evenly on both sides until the inside of the burger reaches 165 F, measured using a meat thermometer.

Enjoy topped with your favorite toppings and sides!
