Chipotle Turkey Burgers
This recipe can be made with ground beef or chicken instead of turkey, but this is our take on eating a little healthier. If you can’t find a chipotle in adobo sauce, feel free to just use a jalapeño and chop it up and add a little barbecue sauce to compensate for the lost adobo.
- 2 lb. Ground Turkey
- 1⁄2 C Onion Chopped and Sauteed
- 3 TBS Fresh Chopped Cilantro
- 2 chipotle chile in adobo sauce
- Finely chopped 2 tsp Garlic Powder
- 2 tsp onion powder
- 3 TBS Grilla Beef Rub
- 8 slices pepper jack cheese
- 8 hamburger buns
I recommend assembling the burgers the night before so all the ingredients really get a chance
to meld. The extra time spent the night before ensures not only better flavor, but once
assembled and placed back in the fridge it ensures the burgers stay together better.
Finely chop the onion
Place turkey, onion, cilantro, chile pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and Grilla Beef Rub in a
large bowl. Use your hands to mix well and form into 8 patties.
Preheat either your Silverbac, Kong, or Grilla to 375 degrees.
Cook the turkey burgers until they reach at least 165 degrees. Cook time will be dictated by
thickness of burgers, but allow for about 45min of cook time. Use a small, highly accurate
thermometer such as a Thermopop to verify the internal temp. Do not trust the look of the
patties, you must cook them until they reach 165 to avoid any issues.
Just before the patties are removed from the grill, top with the cheese and serve.
If you are looking to keep all the carbs out of the dish, skip the bun and eat like a hamburger
steak with sautéed onions and mushrooms. If you want less carbs but something still handheld,
these are great in a wrap with some ranch dressing and tomato and lettuce. Our very own Gold
n Bold is a perfect pairing with these burgers as well.
