Spicy Jalapeño Turkey Burgers bring on the heat, with some added flavour from the cilantro, onions and lime juice. Summer grilling doesn’t get any better than this!




  1. Grease and pre-heat an outdoor grill or stove top skillet.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together all the ingredients until well incorporated. Shape into 4 patties and add to the pre-heated grill or skillet.
  3. Cook on low-medium heat for 8-10 minutes. Flip the patties over and cook for another 8-10 minutes, or until fully cooked through. Remove from heat and serve with desired toppings.


I suggest using fresh ground turkey, chicken or beef. I’ve tried making these using frozen ground turkey that was thawed overnight in the refrigerator. The patties were wetter and were not as firm. While I was able to cook them in the skillet, they would have fallen apart on the BBQ grill.
