Poblano Turkey Burgers

  1. In a medium sized skillet, add 2 teaspoons of olive oil and heat over medium heat. Once the oil is hot add the diced onions, poblano, coriander, cumin, cayenne, and green chiles and cook for about 3-4 minutes, frequently stirring so that the onions becomes translucent. Then set it aside.
  2. In a large bowl, add the ground turkey, cooked poblanos and onions, cilantro, lime juice, salt, and pepper and mix with a spoon or your hands, making sure everything is evenly distributed. Then divide mixture into 8 patties.
  3. In a medium to large skillet heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat and once the oil is hot place about 4 of the burgers onto the pan. Cook each side for about 5 minutes.
  4. Add one more tablespoon of oil and proceed to cook the last 4 burgers.
  5. Line a plate with a paper towel and place cooked burgers to dry from the oil. Eat warm.


  1. Dice the avocado in its shell and scoop it out with a spoon onto a bowl. Add the jalapeno, cilantro, red onion, lime juice, and salt and mash with a fork to combine.


  1. Whenever I cook any type of burger, I like to test out the seasonings first by taking a tiny amount of the mixture and cooking it the same way I would the rest of the batch. Once it’s done you can see if the burger needs more salt and seasonings and adjust before cooking the whole batch.
  2. I feel like the second batch cooks a bit quicker than the first batch since the pan is already very hot. Keep an eye on the burgers and carefully half-flip one to see if it’s getting a dark brown color.
  3. These burgers are on the smaller side, in between a slider and a regular size burger – I personally like the smaller burger because they’re just easier to handle but if you prefer a larger burger you can definitely make a larger patty and just adjust the cook time a tiny bit until it’s fully cooked.
