Santa Fe Turkey Burger

The inspiration for this burger comes from the American Southwest. There is some really great food to be had in New Mexico and Arizona and this recipe is proof of that I assure you.


The superflavor of the Southwest is the New Mexico Green Chile which is a mild rich Chile that goes perfectly with the mild meat of Turkey. Add in some Tortilla Chips, Cumin and Jalapeno and you have a winner!!!

Oh and the Cheese does it’s bit as well 😁




500g (1 pound) Minced Turkey


1 dl (1/2 cup) Gouda Cheese Shredded


1/2 dl (1/4 cup) Tomato Salsa


100g New Mexico Green Chile Chopped (or use Padron Chile as substitute)


1 dl (1/2 cup) Tortilla Chips Crushed


1/2 Onion Chopped


2 Tbsp Pickled Jalapeno Chopped


1 tsp Cumin (spiskummin)


1 tsp Salt


1/2 tsp Garlic Powder


1/2 tsp Black Pepper Ground


Mix everything, form into 4 Burgers and put in fridge.


Start grill for indirect grilling and take it up to 200c (400F)


Put in thermometer in one of the Burgers and grill indirect (not directly over the heat) under lid until innertemp. reaches 80c (160F).


Let rest 5 minutes (if you can wait that long😆) Enjoy!!!
