  • I made these for dinner a few nights ago and the prep time was two minutes -no lie! The flavor, however, tasted like the meat had been slow cooking in green chile sauce all day.

    Smoky Green Chile Turkey Burgers
    1 1/3 lb lean ground turkey
    2 4oz cans diced green chiles, drained
    1 small onion, diced
    1/2 tsp cumin
    1/2 tsp celery seed
    Salt (optional)
    Provolone slices
    Heat large non-stick skillet (or grill) to medium-high heat. In a large bowl, add all ingredients and mix well. Form into 4 patties and place in skillet. Cook until meat is cooked through. You can place the lid on if you like to steam them a little, but I think there was enough liquid in the chiles to keep the burgers from drying out. 
    Place sliced cheese on the burgers and put lid on until cheese is melted. Serve. 
    The cumin and celery seed gave the burgers a nice smoky flavor and the provolone was the perfect mild cheese.  So I guess these were actually green chile turkey CHEESE burgers. :)
    Look at that cheese bubble! Nom nom nom!
