Hatch chile season is here again and this year, my co-worker Leah gave me a bag of extra hot(!) roasted ones. I took one teeny bite and whoah, it set my mouth on fire! Hatch chiles come in different levels of spiciness and you can get a mild one if you prefer a non-spicy version.
I put the roasted chiles to good use during this past Sunday’s meal prep by making some Hatch Chile Turkey Sliders which turned out amazing! I didn’t use any binder in the mixture and it held up pretty well as long as they are shaped into 1 1/2-inch diameter mini patties.
This is such a simple recipe with just 3 main ingredients (plus spices) that you can have it ready in no time!
Hatch Chile Turkey Sliders
- 2 pounds ground turkey 93% lean, 7% fat
- 3/4 cup cilantro chopped
- 1 cup roasted hatch chilis chopped (seeds, skin and stems removed)
- 1 tbsp garlic powder
- 2 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well.
Shape mixture into 1 1/2-inch sized mini patties.
Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Spray or brush with a little bit of oil of your choice.
Fry the sliders for 3 minutes the first side.
Flip and fry another 3 minutes on the second side.
Remove from the pan and serve warm.
