The BEST Turkey Burger

Why is this the BEST Turkey Burger?
Most Turkey Burgers turn out DRY and tasteless.
This Turkey Burger has a secret ingredient that makes it very moist and flavorful!
-1 can of Green Chilies-
Thats it! Simple, and makes a huge difference.
This is my new go to Turkey burger recipe.
Thank you to A Dash of Sass for this recipe.

The BEST Turkey Burger

1 pound ground turkey
1 small can diced green chilies, drained
a few pinches of kosher salt, to taste
fresh ground pepper, to taste
5 whole wheat hamburger buns
2 ripe avocados
2 tomatoes sliced
5 slices pepper jack or provolone


1- In a large bowl, combine the ground turkey, green chilies, salt and pepper until well mixed.

2.- Using your hands, shape the mixture into five patties, approximately 3 inches in diameter.

3- Preheat your grill pan or charcoal grill . Brush the grill or grill pan lightly with olive oil or non-stick cooking spray. Place the patties on the grill. Grill until cooked through, approximately 3-4 minutes per side.

4- A few minutes before removing the patties from the grill, top each patty with one slice of cheese. Wait for the cheese to melt.

5- Place each patty in a warmed bun and top with sliced avocado and tomato. Serve warm and with a side of grilled vegetables (recipe follows in post below).

Makes 5 turkey burgers.
