A moist southwestern flavored turkey burger topped with roasted red peppers & poblano peppers.



  • 2.5lb ground white turkey
  • 1 T. cumin
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 3 red peppers, roasted
  • 2 poblano peppers, roasted
  • hamburger buns
  • goat cheese (optional)
  • avocado (optional)


  1. Chop up onion, fresh cilantro, and garlic cloves.
  2. Add all of these ingredients to a bowl along with ground white turkey meat.
  3. Mix together then add egg, cumin, salt & pepper.
  4. Make sure all ingredients are thoroughly combined. Form 1/4lb. burger and set aside.
  5. Turn the grill on to medium high heat. Season red peppers and poblano peppers with olive oil, salt & pepper. Place them on the grill.
  6. Roast peppers, continually turning so all sides are charred. (about 5-7 minutes)
  7. Bring peppers inside and let sit. Put formed burger patties on the grill. Grill for 5-6 minutes per side. (if you do it more than that they will be dry so pay attention to the time)
  8. Once burgers are done, set aside.
  9. Deseed and julienee your roasted peppers from the grill. (I usually leave the charred skin on because I like the taste, but if you want to take it off you can just use a knife to scrap the outside shell off)
  10. Alright, time to put this bad boy together! Bring out your buns (I toast mine because I like them warm and crunchy), next your turkey burger, then add a little bit of your red peppers and poblanos.
  11. Thats the main part of the burger, for additional toppings I added 1 slice of goat cheese and sliced avocado. YUM!!!
