Turkey Chorizo Burger

Rated as 4.43 out of 5 Stars

"It attacks your taste buds! Spicy chorizo-style sausage and lean ground turkey combine to make a kick-butt burger that's full of taste but won't leave you feeling stuffed. This burger could also be grilled outdoors for a smokier flavor. Goes great with a michel ada or frozen margarita."

  1. Combine ground turkey, chorizo, garlic, onion powder, chipotle flakes, and black pepper in a large bowl; mix with your hands until well-blended. Shape into 4 loosely-packed patties.
  2. Heat a griddle or large skillet over medium heat until hot; grease with buttery spread. Place patties on the griddle; cook until browned, about 3 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low; continue cooking for about 5 minutes. Flip patties and cook until browned on the second side, about 6 minutes.
  3. Top each patty with a slice of pepperjack cheese. Cook until cheese is melted, about 1 minute more.
  4. Toast hamburger buns in a toaster oven. Spread 1 1/2 teaspoon mayonnaise over each half. Place cooked patties over bottom buns. Top each patty with 1/2 cup spring mix lettuce. Sprinkle lime juice over lettuce. Cover with top buns.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • For a healthier option, try using soyrizo in place of the meat chorizo.
  • Substitute red pepper flakes for the chipotle powder if desired.
  • Substitute jalapeno Cheddar cheese for the pepper jack cheese if preferred.

These are easy, quick and delicious!

We had half a pound of ground hot Italian sausage (instead of chorizo) and I used olive oil (instead of buttery spread). Everything else was the same down to cooking time. I would definitely mak...
