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!
Prep Time:10 minutes
Cook Time:20 minutes
Total Time:30 minutes
Yield:4 burgers 1x
1 pound (454 g package) of lean ground turkey
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped and stems mostly removed
1/2 tbsp. lime juice
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp coriander
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1/8 tsp pepper
Grease and pre-heat an outdoor grill or stove top skillet.
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.
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.
