Green Chile and Cilantro Turkey Burger


While the pictures are not nearly as appealing (in my opinion) of burgers without a bun, I'll be completely honest and tell you that I simply just do not miss the bun at all. If I'm picking up a burger from a fast food place I'll just eat the bun but if I'm making it, at an actual restaurant or even at Five Guys, I opt for a bunless burger.

    • 1 lb. lean ground turkey
    • 8 oz. canned green chiles
    • 1 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
    • 1/2 cup red onion, diced
    • 2 tsp. cumin
    • 1 tsp. chili powder
    • salt and pepper 
Toppings: lettuce, tomato, guacamole

1. Preheat a grill to medium-high heat.
2. In a large bowl, combine ground turkey, chiles, cilantro, red onion, cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper.
3. Form into 4 evenly sized patties.
4. Grill for 3-4 minutes on each side or until cooked through.
5. Add toppings and serve immediately.

If you're looking for a lighter burger packed with fresh flavors, this is it. If you were feeling particularly ambitious, you could roast your own hatch chiles and dice them up to put in this burger, but since hatch chiles have such a short season, I prefer to go for the canned chile variety.
