Chipotle Lime Burger

  • 1 lb extra lean ground turkey
  • 1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce diced
  • ½ cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • ½ lime juiced
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper

Chipotle Lime Sauce

  • 1 cup nonfat greek yogurt
  • 1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp salt


  • Add all of the burger patty ingredients to a large bowl. Mix well.
  • Form the mixture into burger patties and place in the fridge for 15 mins to let them firm. (To portion, divide into 4ths; for a more exact portion measurement, divide total mixture weight, not including dish, by 4).
  • While the burger patties are refrigerating, add all of the sauce ingredients into a small bowl (or blender). Blend or stir vigorously until sauce reaches the desired consistency.
  • Add burger patties to a heated grill. Grill until patties are cooked thoroughly (an internal temperature of 165 degrees).
  • Serve with a bun, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, sauce, or whatever you love on your burger.
  • Enjoy!


  • Nutrition only includes burger patty & sauce 
  • To make gluten free: Instead of breadcrumbs, use gluten-free breadcrumbs or almond flour
  • To make dairy-free: Use a dairy-free yogurt for the chipotle sauce
