These turkey burgers are based on a fabulous recipe from Mark Sisson’s Primal Blueprint Cookbook. His recipe is actually called Fried Eggs Over Green Chili Burgers, and is yet another high-protein entrée from the king of primal that my entire family enjoyed.

4 turkey burgers

Ingredients

  • Two 4-ounce cans diced green chiles
  • 1 Pound ground turkey
  • 1 Cup finely chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 Cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 Teaspoons cumin
  • 1 Teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Celtic sea salt

Directions

In a medium-sized bowl mix the diced chiles with turkey, cilantro, onion, cumin, chili powder, and salt together, careful not to overmix. 

Form into 4 patties. Preheat the grill to medium-high and grill the patties until cooked through and the internal temperature reaches 180 degrees, about 3-4 minutes on each side. 

 

Chile Shopping Tip

Fresh peppers get hotter as they age; they will achieve a more reddish hue and sometimes develop streaks in the skin.

Chile Cooking Tip

There are 60 varieties of chile peppers, many of which are used in Mexican cooking. Handle them with care. When handling the spicier kinds, gloves are recommended. Always wash your hands with soap and warm water before touching your eyes.
