Hatch Chile Turkey Burgers

It’s that time of year again. Football season. More importantly, a fall full of tailgating.  Of all the things I love a good football party is definitely at the top of the list.  To me nothing goes better with football than burgers and there is no doubt in my mind that piling cheddar cheese and grilled peppers on top could only make them better.

I love peppers and Hatch Chiles are definitely some of my favorites. Hatch Chiles season is coming to an end, and although they are really good on this burger, I think poblanos would taste great too!

Hatch Green Chile Turkey Burgers
serves 4

1 1/3 lb. ground turkey
2 Tbsp. Fresh chopped oregano
2 Tbsp. Extra Virgin olive oil
1 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
2-3 medium green chiles
1 red onion, sliced
4 slices cheddar cheese
1 tomato sliced
1/2 c. mayonnaise
1/2 lime
4 multi-grain burger buns

Prepare your grill to medium high heat.
Mix the ground turkey, oregano, olive oil, salt and pepper.  Divide the meat into 4 patties.

Place whole green chiles, red onion, and burger patties on the grill.  Cook the peppers and red onions until lightly charred and set aside to cool.  Cook the burgers 5-6 minutes on each side until cooked through.  Place the cheese on the burger in the last minute of cooking and cover to melt.  Remove the stem and seeds on the peppers.  Cut into strips. Set aside and tent with foil.

Mix the mayonnaise with the juice of half a lime.  Spread about 1 Tbsp. mayonnaise on the bottom side of each bun and Top with burger patty.  Place some strips of pepper, grilled red onion, lettuce, and tomato on the top of each burger patty.  Top with the rest of the bun and enjoy!
