Tasty Taco Turkey Burgers - Grain & Egg free




Hello Everyone...........Mama's back.

Had a recipe to share. Darn these were good. Really good. 

I've been on a hiatus from blogging my recipes. Not from developing recipes. As soon as I said I wasn't going to post recipes for a while I couldn't keep myself out of the kitchen. So I have been having fun trying out lots of new recipes. But they aren't all making it to paper...........or Blogger as the case may be.

But hubby and I loved this one so much that I thought I better get out the camera and jot some notes. You'll notice my presentation is lacking.....................

That's how I roll these days. I'm trying to focus on playing with my kids.  We have had an awesome Spring Break. Crafts galore. Shopping. Swimming. Busy. Busy. Busy. Fun. Fun. Fun. Three happy kids. And I was "there" to enjoy it. Fully there. And that's what its all about. I am well enough (no Candida, no Adrenal fatigue, no digestive problems - YAY) right now to be in the moment so that's where I'm trying to stay!

Hope you enjoy this and hopefully I'm back soon with some of my new tofu recipes............I've become slightly obsessed with Silken Tofu..............can't stop experimenting. Its magical!


Turkey Burgers - Mexican

by MamaChanty
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes ish
Keywords: grill entree low-carb paleo turkey Mexican
Ingredients (7 - 8 burgers)
  • 1 lb lean ground turkey (I get mine at Costco)
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup red sweet pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 Tbsp arrowroot flour
  • 1/2 Tbsp ground Chia seed
  • 1/4 cup corn
  • 5 tsp Taco spice
I make a big batch of my taco spice using the following (I use it for various recipes):
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 4 tsp cumin
  • 4 tsp fine sea salt
  • 2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tsp chili powder
Instructions
I mixed all the ingredients together, except for the meat, first. I then added the ground turkey and gently mixed it up until it was fully combined. I try not to over-mix. I made the mixture into patties.
I found the mixed meat to be a bit sticky and was worried it would stick to the bbq, so hubby fried the patties first - about 2-3 minutes on each side- in some grapeseed oil on the frying pan. He then grilled them for about 7 minutes on each side on the BBQ (on low heat).
I served topped with home-made guacamole. So tasty!!!
