Dukan Green Chili Turkey Burgers (it's Paleo too!)

Green Chili Turkey Burgers

We loved this recipe.

The burgers were juicy and, very easy to make.  We found this recipe during one of our initial searched for Paleo recipes.  It's listed as a Gluten Free and Paleo recipe on Elana's Pantry blog....and it's Dukan!   Elana's Pantry has a lot of great recipes that fit into the Dukan Diet.  Some you will have to wait until Consolidation.  She has a lot of Gluten Free recipes too.

The burgers are soft when you're trying to form them and place them on the grill pan, but once they start cooking they are fine.  We're definitely having these again...perhaps in meatloaf form.

Makes 8 small patties or 4 large patties
Prep Time: 10 minutes or so
Cook Time: 20 minutes (2 batches in our grill pan, but would have taken less had we used a grill and cooked all 8 patties at once.

1 lb. lean ground turkey
1 - 7 oz. can of diced green chilis
1 c. cilantro finely chopped
1/2 c. onion, finely chopped
2 t. ground cumin
1 t. chili powder
1 t. pure sea salt

Wish we had a larger food processor to mix all of this up, but oh wells.  Mix all ingredients together.  Form patties and cook in a grill pan over medium high heat.  Cook approximately 3-4 minutes per side or until juices run clear.

We had these with asparagus.  I should've made myself a fried egg!

Enjoy...we sure did!
