Ok, so this is the 4th time that I've made these burgers, and I think that I've finally got it down pat. I will admit that this version is a little on the spicy side. So if you don't like too much spice, then add less chipotle & adobo. My husband (a total carnivore) loves these burgers. Hope you all love them, too!
makes 4 burgers
olive oil1/4 large onion, small dice
1/2 bell pepper (any color will do), small dice
2 chipotle peppers, small dice + 1-2 Tbl adobo sauce
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 C chicken stock
juice of 1/2 lime
3 Tbl chopped cilantro
1# ground turkey
toasted burger buns
4 slices cheese (pepper jack or provolone)
1 ripe avocado mashed with S &P
Preheat oven to 350.
In a large saute pan (that can go in the oven later), heat enough olive oil to coat the bottom of the pan. Add onion & peppers. Saute over medium heat until softened and lightly browned. Season with S & P.
Add chipotle, adobo, & cumin. Saute until fragrant, about 45 seconds. Add chicken stock to deglaze the pan. Pull off heat.
Pour the mixture into a bowl & add lime juice & cilantro.
Let cool slightly, then add ground turkey & season with S & P.
Mix with hands & form a "tester patty."
Preheat the same pan coated with pan spray & cook the patty to check for seasoning.
Separate the remaining mix into 4 pieces.
Place the patties into a preheated pan coated with pan spray.
Saute over medium heat 3-4 minutes on one side until well-browned.
Flip and saute for 1 minute more, then transfer the pan to the oven.
Bake for 5-6 more minutes, or until cooked through.
Top with cheese & avocado, enjoy!
