Recipe for Green Chili Turkey Cheeseburgers

Yield: 3 or 4 burgers, depending on how big you make them
Time: 20 minutes


  • 1 lb. ground turkey (or turkey breast)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 garlic cloves, mashed and chopped finely
  • 1 can diced green chilis (4 oz)
  • 3 ounces shredded low fat cheese (I used cheddar/jack blend)
  • 1/2 TBSP honey
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Your favorite multi/whole grain hamburger bun


  • Preheat grill.
  • Mix turkey, salt, pepper, cumin, garlic, 1/2 of chilis, 2 oz cheese together and form into patties.
  • Grill until just cooked and no longer pink in the middle, about 3 minutes per side, flipping once.
  • After the flip, top patties with remaining cheese.
  • Toast buns and mix together the remaining chilis, lime juice, and honey.
  • Taste for seasoning and add salt and pepper if needed.
  • Serve burgers on buns, topped with chili mix.
