Red Chile and Cheese Stuffed Turkey Burgers


Servings: 4 Print


  • 1 pound lean ground turkey meat
  • ¼ teaspoons sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ cup shredded pepper jack cheese
  • ¼ cup fresh red chilies, minced
  • 4 whole wheat hamburger buns, toasted


  1. Season turkey meat with salt, pepper, chili powder and onion powder and mix together well. Make 4 equal patties.
  2. Divide each patty in half so that you can stuff it. On one half of the divided patty, add 2 tablespoon of cheese and 1 tablespoon of chilies. Top with the remaining half of the patty seal with turkey around the edges to close the burger.
  3. Heat a large skillet sprayed with olive oil spray on high heat. Add burgers and reduce the heat to low. Cook on one side until browned, then flip. Flip a few times to prevent burning and make sure burgers are cooked all the way through, about 5 minutes per side.
  4. Serve each patty on a toasted bun and add your favorite toppings, such as avocado, salsa and arugula.
