Spicy Southwestern Turkey Burgers

"WARNING: These are SPICY! But, the flavor is fantastic. If you are looking for something different....this is it! Garnish these as you would any other burger...lettuce, tomato, onion, mayo, mustard or ketchup. We used a spicy chipotle pepper cheese as well - these were fantastic. The chipotle peppers and the cumin give these a really smoky flavor."

  1. I have never been a fan of turkey burgers. But these are REALLY good. I didn't find that they were overly spicy at all. I grilled these and gave them a bit of char. Excellent recipe... I will not be going back to beef.
  2. This sure did have a kick to it. I cut the recipe in half since there's just 2 of us. The chipotle in adobo really gives it a smokey bite. Will make again. Thanks for posting. Made for Bargain Basement game 2009.


I have always loved to cook. I really love to try new recipes! RecipeZaar is perfect for looking for new recipes. It's the first place I go when looking for something new! My husband and I moved to Northeast Arizona (up in the mountains) in April (2007). We live near Show Low. The summer was absolutely beautiful! It never got to 100 degrees! Coming from Phoenix, we both enjoy being away from the heat and the city. Our first snow this year was absolutely gorgeous! My recipe ratings pretty much follow the star system. I will usually make a recipe as is the first time. I say usually but I do still change things sometimes. I try to be fair if I have made changes. I will rate 5 stars if we LOVE it and it will be a regular dish around our house. 4 stars if we really liked it and 3 stars if it was just OK but we wouldn't make it again. I realize everyone's tastes are different so I do try to be gentle. Cooking can be a very personal thing to someone. Another creative outlet for me is beading. I love to make beaded jewelry.
