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. I’m so glad you republished this. I used to make these all the time but, somehow, forgot about them. I will definitely be making them again this week!

  2. These are delicious. I made them a few weeks ago. Very easy to make, full of flavor, and even taste really good as (cold) leftovers. Thank you, Elena, again for another wonderful recipe.

  3. Making these tonight! So excited to spice up my ground turkey! Thanks once again for a great, easy recipe.

  4. I make turkey burgers similar to this and I also dice pears sometimes or apples and add them in. Makes for a mouth full of yummy flavors. xo
