Green Chili Turkey Burgers

These Green Chili 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 entree from the king of primal that my entire family enjoyed.

Green Chili Turkey Burgers
  • 2 (4 oz.) cans diced green chiles
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 cup cilantro, finely chopped
  • ½ cup onion, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon celtic sea salt
  1. In a medium sized bowl mix diced chiles with turkey, cilantro, onion, cumin, chili powder and salt
  2. Form into burgers and grill
  3. Serve

As you can tell from the directions above, and as one Amazon user commented about recipes in The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook, this recipe is definitely one of those “quick and dirty dump and stir affairs.”

My burgers have more “junk” in them than Mark’s do, as I prefer a pattie that is very heavy on the vegetables.
