I created this recipe originally to get the kids to eat spinach and prove they would like it. Since you cant really taste the spinach at all it was a clear winner! The second reason was to create a flavorful new way to make ground chicken burgers. These wont disappoint you. It will be a fiesta in your mouth and your family will be asking when you will make these again. Great on a picnic and even better reheated the next day. This recipe can be easily cut in half if you do not want 18 burgers for a picnic or grill out. The hot sauce just adds flavor but no heat to this recipe.

How to Make Fiesta Spinach Chicken / Turkey Burgers

Step-by-Step

  1. Place Ground Chicken or Turkey in Large Bowl. Break Apart with Large Fork or Spoon.
  2. Add Ingredients in order of Recipe making sure each item is blended into the ground Chicken or Turkey. This meat mixture easily blends with a large spoon.
  3. Form patties using a 1/3 cup measuring cup. Form into the size patties you would like larger and thinner or smaller and thicker.(Mixture will be sticky. You may want to use gloves when using your hands to form patties.)
  4. Cook patties in a large non stick skillet with 2 TBSP of vegetable oil on Med High Heat. (This makes 18 patties (1/3 cup each) so you may need to make 3 batches if you are cooking them all at once. My kids love these the next day so we cook all of them for the next day lunches. I am sure you can freeze these ahead of time but they never last that long at our house.
  5. Patties are ready to turn over when the pink meat turns white. When there is very little pink left on the top of the patties - flip over to lightly brown the other side. Turn Patties only once. Do not over cook patties.
