I love making turkey burgers and I love being able to switch up recipes with new spices. I used a chipotle seasoning that gave these chipotle turkey burgers the best flavor!

I have a less spicy turkey burger recipe here if you’re not feeling spicy turkey burgers. But if you are- follow along because these are the perfect amount of spicy! Not too spicy but they still have a good kick to them.

To start, I sauteed a diced onion and chopped spinach to mix with ground turkey, chipotle seasoning, garlic powder, and onion powder. The onions and spinach only take 4 minutes to saute before you add them in with the other ingredients.

Mix everything together in a bowl then form into burgers. I made 5 medium sized burgers. I like using this cast iron skillet grill for burgers because it gives them a great flavor without having to actually grill them. I don’t know about you but it’s about 10 degrees outside right now so there’s no chance of me firing up the grill haha.

I cook the burgers for 6 minutes on each side over medium heat. While the burgers cooked, I made easy paleo sweet potato buns. I sliced a sweet potato into rounds, broiled on the bottom shelf for 10 minutes, and then served with the burgers when they were done.

Simple but oh so tasty!
