      They do but you can always use less Jalapeno to make them milder 🙂

These recipes are an awesome way for people to not be intimidated by the idea of it – the food looks amazing, not weird, and it gets me thinking that I might actually be able to try Whole 30.

    YUMMM! We made these tonight, including the fried eggs on top (we did overeasy). They were SO good over a nice arugula salad. I did 1 whole jalapeno because mine were a little on the old side and were probably not as potent. Absolutely delicious, never would have thought of the egg idea- such a nice touch! Thanks so much for sharing, I always love a good healthy recipe!

      August 15, 2016

      I have never had a problem! It sticks together exactly like a beef burger. No one I have ever talked to has had that problem either. Was your turkey really mushy? I had chicken burgers fall apart once because the ground chicken was really soggy, but the turkey has always worked like a dream.

        When making burgers, I always* add a raw egg to the mixture; it binds the mix together, so it doesn’t end up all over the pan.
        btw: my rating is 5 stars for this recipe, but it doesn’t seem to be showing them all. Hope it gets marked as a 5!

        * OK, I often forget for the first burger…

      I just had the same problem! I think I had an extra juicy lime. I tried adding some arrowroot starch, but it was too late, next time I’ll add it when I’m mixing to see if they hold up a little better.

      The flavor is amazing!

        Hmmm! I am so sorry to hear that. Is it possible that your turkey has a lot of liquid? Mine has none. If so setting on paper towels might help. I will add that to the instructions.

    This was the most delicious food I ever made all indoors (I mostly work on a Kamado Joe). My wife and I are heat lovers so we used a heaping TBSP of vitamixed Serrano peppers to amp up the heat.

    The poached egg was the clincher.

    I wish I could post a picture because these plated beautifully. Thank you!!!

    These are super tasty but mine totally fell apart and ended up being ground turkey. I bought the 85% turkey as suggested (I always use 93% and I would do so next time with this recipe). I think the turkey had too many natural juices and adding the lime just turned it to mush. I am going to try it again though because the flavor and kick were great!

    Just made these tonight and they were a huge hit! My son doesn’t care for eggs, so I left it off of his, but the rest of us had it with an over easy egg on top. Love that it’s a flexible dish that way. Mine also fell apart, so I may try adding an egg to the turkey mixture next time, or even trying squeezing out the extra liquid before adding the rest of the ingredients. Will definitely be making this one again. Thanks for sharing!

    Was pretty good but I thought there was way too much cumin fior the recipe. That’s all I tasted.

    To help with my patties staying together after I formed the patties I put them in the freezer for about 10 minutes. Also I didn’t flip them until they were completely done on the one side.

    This was really good. I didn’t have any shallots, so I used about 2 tbs minced onion and a clove of garlic. I also used lemon zest instead of lime because I won’t have limes for another month. I am usually a wimp when it comes to spicy food, so I only used half a jalapeno, but next time I’ll use more. I doubled the recipe because I had 2 pounds of ground chicken for 2 people. All but the first 4 are going in the freezer raw to make later

    So I just wanted to say that I made these today for my wife and my two boys. I love foods that have heat to them as long as they are tasty and this recipe did not disappoint. One item that I wanted to mention is that I used Jalepeno peppers from a jar, Nacho or pickled Jalepeno’s. I used the same amount the recipe calls for and minced them into the dish. Fantastic, the meat was very tasty, my wife made her own Pico de Gallo, and everything blended very well. Highly recommend putting the egg on top, it really adds that nice touch. Great recipe!!!!!

    I made these tonight! They were delicious! I added a diced red onion and diced up a 1/4 cup of jalepenos. I used half the cilantro amount because my husband isn’t a big herb guy. I made a whole30 approved chipotle ranch sauce to top it. I sautéed red onion in the turkey juices to add to it. Wrapped it in iceberg lettuce topped off with tomatoes and avocado. It was delicious. Made it with a side of potato fries! I also doubled the recipe so we would have leftovers. I only like cooking every other day..Lots of flavor and I wouldn’t recommend it for children. I made plain turkey burgers for the kiddos. Overall I added it to my recipe book and it’s a keeper! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
