I am not normally a large meat eater, but recently I've been all about the protein. Chicken, beef, and, more and more frequently, turkey burgers. I came home last night with a hankering for turkey burgers, and an urge to use the chipotles in adobo that have been sitting in my cupboard for a while, so - Chipotle Turkey Burgers!
I was not impressed with the spiciness of these turkey burgers, but that may have been from my laziness in actually cutting the chipotles into little tiny pieces, and instead choosing "chunky-style" turkey burgers. That, or the fact that my favorite condiment is jalapenos. Just sayin'.
"Spicy" Chipotle Turkey Burgers
Combine in a bowl:
1 pound ground turkey
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 tablespoons cilantro
1 chipotle en adobo, finely chopped (optional if your name contains double vowels)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon seasoned salt (I used regular, and it was still delightful)
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Smoosh it together into patties.
There are those big chunks I was talking about.
Then, put them in a pan over medium-high heat and cook them until theres no pink in the middle, and its dark on the outside. Or at least, that's how I enjoy them.
Eat in a bun, on some lettuce, in between bread or just by itself like its a squished meatball!
And then you end up with this -
And hopefully also a full belly, which would be more difficult to photograph.
