• Green Chili turkey Burgers

Okay, real talk: these burgers are healthy, mexican-y, super duper full of flavor, paleo, and 100% whole 30 approved for those of you who care.

I demolished these pretty quickly when I made them my first time not too long ago. 

Eat them in between 2 hamburger buns, in lettuce wraps, crumbled on top of a salad, wrapped in a tortilla, by itself right outta the fridge... You name it and it'll most likely taste good! Unless you put it in the middle of like a PB&J sandwich or something... If that's the case, then first of all, I'd be a little concerned for you. And second of all, I think you should take a beginner or beginner level cooking class or something. Just looking out for ya over here. 

Plus all you have to do for these is chop a couple things up, mix everything in a bowl, form into patties, and stick 'em in the oven! Or if it's nice outside, I'm sure you could grill them


  • 2 4 oz. cans diced green chiles
  • 1 pound 99% lean ground turkey
  • 1 cup cilantro, finely chopped
  • ½ cup onion, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon celtic sea salt (I love salt and this was fine for me, but if you're more sensitive to salt, i would say only use 3/4 tsp salt)


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F and spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spay.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl.
  3. Form into 6-8 patties, depending on how big you'd like them to be, and place them on the baking sheet.
  4. Cook in the oven until the burgers reach 165°F. All ovens are different, but it should take 25-30 minutes. Just keep checking them every once in a while.
