We were getting tired of the old standby burger recipes and I happened upon a can of adobe chilis in the pantry, while I was reaching for them, I accidentally knocked the cilantro and garlic off the shelf and an idea was hatched.
2 lbs ground turkey
2 scallions, sliced fine
1 tsp dried cilantro
2 tsp Garlic Powder
1 egg white
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
Pepper Jack Cheese Slices
Fresh Spinach Leaves
Makes 8 HUGE Burgers or 12 Medium Burgers
In a small hand chopper or blender puree the adobe chilis, egg white, cilantro, and garlic powder until well blended. You want to avoid large chunks of chilis.
In a medium size mixing bowl combine raw ground turkey, sliced scallions, salt and pepper and all of the seasoned adobe chili/egg white mix. Stir well to blend completely,
Form into patties and grill or pan fry over medium until cooked throughout, flipping only ONCE (about 5 minutes per side) during the last couple minutes of cooking top with pepper jack cheese.
Serve on Skinny bread over a layer of fresh spinach, top with chipotle mayo and fresh tomato slices.
