Green Chili Turkey Burgers

These 7-ingredient Green Chili Turkey Burgers are a super popular paleo recipe. Made with ground turkey, green chiles, cilantro, onion, cumin, chili powder, and salt, my loaded paleo burgers are stuffed with spicy goodness! Better yet, they are an absolute cinch to throw together.

One of our favorite paleo dinners is Green Chili Turkey Burgers served with my No Potato Salad, and Bubby’s Cucumber Salad. We make the burgers on the grill during the summer, and fry them up in a pan when we have cold weather.

  1. This has been one of our favorite ‘go to’ recipes for several years. I double the recipe and then freeze some for later! Thank you for your great recipes!

  2. I halved the recipe and tried them tonight! It was SO GOOD, but if/when I made/make them again, I’d probably cut down the cilantro, because it kind of overwhelms the Hatch chiles.

    Also, I noticed that the recipe says to divide the pound of turkey into quarters, but says it makes eight servings. Is that correct?
