Chipotle-adobo turkey burgers

These burgers are going to become a regular recipe that I make. They are smokey and a little spicy and oh-so-flavorful.


  • 1 1/4 pound ground turkey
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 large chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, diced
  • 2 tsp adobo sauce
  • 1/8 cup plus 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
  • 4 tablespoons plain greek yogurt
  • juice of one lime
  • 8 slices turkey bacon, cooked
  • queso fresco(optional)
  • cheddar cheese(optional)

In a bowl, combine garlic, salt, pepper, chipotle pepper, adobo sauce, 1/8 cup of cilantro and 4 slices of turkey bacon(crumbled).

Fold this mixture into the ground turkey until evenly dispursed. 

Form 4 large patties with the turkey meat.

Cook over medium to medium-high heat until no longer pink in the middle. During last few minutes of cooking, add cheese to melt it.

While burgers are cooking, combine yogurt, remaining cilantro and lime juice in a bowl. Set to the side.

When burgers are done cooking, place on a bun, top with a pice of turkey bacon and 1 tablespoon of yogurt mixture. Enjoy the cool creamy-ness of the sauce with the smokey and spiciness of the burger. A perfect match. Sadly, I accidentally deleted the finished product of the burgers on the bun.
