Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes
Total Time 22 minutes
Servings 4 burgers
- 1 pound Ground Turkey, 93% lean
- 4 ounce can Diced Green Chilies -drained very well
- 1 tsp lime zest -about 1 lime
- 1/2 tsp chili powder -make this a very full 1/2 tsp
- 1/2 tsp kosher salt
- 1/4 tsp onion powder
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
Prep your charcoal grill with an even layer of white hot charcoals, or turn your gas grill to medium heat.
In a mixing bowl, using clean hands, lightly mix all the ingredients together until the seasonings and lime zest are incorporated evenly. **overmixing will cause the burgers to be tough. Kitchen Tip: Lime zest can stick to itself in one clump. Sprinkle the lime zest evenly over the turkey so all the zest doesn't end up in one burger.
Form 4 equal patties. Using your thumb place a small dent in the middle of each patty. This will prevent your burgers from shrinking into little hockey pucks.
Brush your grill grate and both sides of the turkey burgers with a little olive oil. This will help the turkey burgers to not stick to the grill.
Grill your turkey burgers for about 14 minutes, 7 minutes per side. Make sure they are cooked all the way thru and have an internal temp of 165 degrees.
Let the burgers rest for 3-5 minutes before serving.
