A little bit of heat coupled with cilantro, scallions and loads of flavorful seasonings, these Juicy turkey burgers will hit the spot with even the pickiest of eaters!
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
4 adobe Chili’s in sauce
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, but do not over-mix.
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.
