Turkey Chili Burger
A great burger idea!
- step-by-step directions
Turkey Chili Burger:
- 4 tablespoons olive oil (divided)
- 1/2 cup onion (peeled, small dice)
- 1 red bell pepper (top removed, small dice)
- 1 jalapeno (top removed, seeded, minced)
- 1 and 1/2 tablespoons cumin
- 2 tablespoons chili powder
- 1 tablespoon dried thyme
- 2 cloves garlic (peeled, minced)
- 1 tablespoons tomato paste
- 1 and 1/2 pounds ground turkey (50/50)
- 1 (15-ounce) can refried pinto beans (lightly mashed)
- 6 Brioche rolls (toasted, to serve)
- 1 cup cheddar cheese (grated, to serve)
- 1 avocado (peeled, pitted, sliced, to serve)
- 1 recipe Hot Sauce Sour Cream (to serve)
- Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper (to taste)
Hot Sauce Sour Cream:
- 1 cup sour cream
- 2 tablespoons hot sauce
- In a medium saute pan, warm olive oil. Add onion, red pepper, jalapeno, cumin, chili powder, dried thyme and stir to combine. Cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture has softened, about 2-3 minutes. Add garlic and tomato paste, stir to combine, and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper.
- Remove from heat and allow to cool completely.
- In a large bowl, add turkey, beans, and cooled vegetable mixture. Mix with hands until mixture is fully combined. Divide mixture into 4 mounds and gently form each mound into a patty. Season with salt and pepper.
- Preheat a large nonstick pan over medium heat with remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Place patties into pan and cook, flipping halfway, for about 5-6 minutes per side or until turkey is cooked through to an internal temperature of 165ºF. During the last minute of cooking, divide cheese evenly amongst patties, and allow to melt.
- To Serve:
- Transfer patties to bottom buns and garnish each with avocado and hot sauce sour cream. Top with bun and serve.
- For the Hot Sauce Sour Cream:
- In a small bowl, add sour cream and hot sauce. Stir to combine and serve.
- Tip: For a tasty twist, try with burger with ground beef, chicken, or bison!
