Made with lean ground turkey breast, spicy green chiles and smoky paprika, these green chile turkey burgers are simple to prepare and perfect for meal prep.

Instructions

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and use your hands to work the mixture together. Weigh the entire mixture and divide it into six equal portions, then form the burgers into patties 3/4-inch thick.
  2. Heat a large frying pan over medium heat. When the pan is hot, give it a spritz of cooking spray. Add the burgers, in batches if necessary, and cook for 5 minutes per side or until the burgers are cooked through.
  3. Serve on buns, plain or with a creamy chipotle mayo

Not sure how to zest a lime? It’s easy! Simply grab a grater (a Microplane is our favorite) and run it across the outside of your lime to remove only the green part of the skin.

Don’t have a grater? No problem. Just use a vegetable peeler to peel off strips of lime zest, then finely chop it with a knife.
