Green Chile Turkey Burgers

If I'm ever on death row making a request for my last meal, odds are good I'll request a burger. There is almost nothing I love more than a juicy burger with gooey cheese and fresh, crisp toppings.

Now I'm hungry all over again.

I've been making this recipe regularly for over a year, tinkering with things here and there until we've hit on a burger we are really crazy about. I love that it's a bit leaner than the typical burger since it uses ground turkey instead of beef, and the chile flavors really take it to another level. And topped with avocado and tomato? So dang good.

Quick and delicious, Green Chile Turkey Burgers

I'd rate this burger at a mild spice level. It's flavorful and delicious without being hot.

For the burgers:
19 ounces ground turkey
1 can (4 ounces) diced green chiles
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2-3 green onions, chopped
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1/3 cup breadcrumbs

For serving:
burger buns
Monterey Jack cheese slices
avocado slices
tomato slices

In a medium bowl, combine all burger ingredients and mix well (I find it easiest to just get in there with my hands to mix it all up).

Heat a skillet over medium-high heat, and coat with nonstick spray.

Divide burger mixture into six equal portions, and shape into patties. Cook on skillet, flipping once, about 5-7 minutes per side or until burgers are cooked through, browned on the outside, and no longer pink inside. Top with cheese while the burgers are still hot.

To assemble, spread mayo on both sides of a bun, top with the burger, then arrange avocado slices, tomato slices, and a lettuce leaf on top.
