My family can’t get enough of turkey burgers – and I simply love discovering and making up a new turkey burger recipe every so often. My juicy zucchini turkey burger recipe is still one of my most visited recipes to date – and I made that so long ago!
Today’s turkey burger recipe is for Chipotle Turkey Burgers. This is one juicy burger – and of course – it’s a little spicy too. I created this burger after trying a few different turkey burger recipes and merging them together to make my own.
Please note that these turkey burgers have a kick – so if your family doesn’t like spice – you should adjust the spice amounts accordingly. You can’t go wrong.
- 1 - 1 1/2 lbs. ground turkey
- 1 Tbsp. olive oil
- 1/2 red pepper (finely chopped)
- 1/2 small or 1/4 or large white onion (finely chopped)
- 1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- 1 tsp. chipotle chili powder
- 1 tsp. ground cumin
- 1 tsp. dried minced onion or onion powder
- 3/4 tsp. oregano leaves
- 1/2 tsp. salt
Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well with your hands (use gloves if possible).
Heat a grill pan* over medium-high heat until hot, then add burger patties to grill. You should hear a sizzle.
Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side.
If the inside of the burgers are still pink, finish them in a 350 degree oven for 5 minutes.
Serve plain, lettuce wrapped, or with a GF burger bun. I serve my plain along with fingerling potatoes and chopped broccoli for an easy and good for you weeknight meal.
