Recipe

Even though summer is coming to a close, I still plan to use my grill as much as possible in the upcoming weeks and this Green Chile Turkey Burgers is the perfect excuse to get out and grill. With green chiles in the burger as well as on top, the patty is slightly spicy and packed with flavor. My favorite way to serve it wrapped up in Bibb lettuce leaves and then top it with pickled red onions, melted mozzarella cheese, and some avocado slices. These burgers also work great as sliders and will jump off the table during football games or weekend gatherings.

    The onions make this burger!!! My husband thinks it belongs on a menu of a gourmet restaurant. Love this one. We made extra onions for tacos the next night.
