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.

Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Top each patty with a slice of pepperjack cheese. Cook until cheese is melted, about 1 minute more.

  • 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.

Simple and straight forward with excellent flavor. Made as written and grilled them as the recipe submitter mentioned. If using the frozen ground turkey in the tube I have a tip for you. Even when thawed it holds a lot more moisture than fresh ground turkey so when using that the patties are too soft to go on the grill. Stick them on a paper plate and pop them in the freezer for 20 minutes and they will stay together perfectly for you. This is a great recipe and one I recommend. Read More

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 make this again. I m excited for leftovers for lunch tomorrow! Read More
