Nutrition per serving may change if servings are adjusted.
1 pound 93%-lean ground turkey
3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
1 scallion, minced
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
½ teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon ground pepper
4 green chiles, such as Hatch, New Mexico or poblano
4 slices pepper Jack cheese (about 1 ounce each)
2 8- to 10-inch whole-wheat flour tortillas, halved
4 tablespoons sour cream
Lettuce & tomato for serving
Build a hot fire or preheat a gas grill to high.
Mix turkey with cilantro, scallion, chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Shape into 4 patties, ½ inch thick. Refrigerate until ready to grill.
Grill chiles until the skins are blackened and blistered, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a clean cutting board and let cool slightly. Scrape off the skin with a paring knife, slice lengthwise and discard seeds and stems.
Oil the grill rack. Grill the burgers until an instant-read thermometer registers 165°F, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Top with cheese and grill until it melts, about 1 minute more. Transfer the burgers to a platter. Quickly warm tortillas on the grill. Serve the burgers in tortilla halves with a chile and sour cream, topped with lettuce and/or tomato, if desired.

This recipe is awesome! Not too spicy, but not underseasoned (and you can always add more spices if you want to amp it up). If you're cutting carbs, swap out the tortilla for a lettuce wrap: It's no less tasty. Great for a high-protein meal and utterly delicious.

Surprisingly spicy flavor! Substituted ground chicken, but taste was outstanding. Like they used the burrito wrap instead of a burger bun. Definitely will make these again!
