• 1lb Ground Turkey (or Chicken)
  • 1/2 Cup shredded Old Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon Chili Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon minced fresh Cilantro
  • 1 Tablespoon Dehydrated Minced Onion (can substitute for minced fresh onion or shallot)
  • 1 Tablespoon finely minced fresh Jalapeño pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Fresh Cracked Black Pepper


  1. In a large mixing bowl combine all ingredients with ground turkey mixing well with a rubber spatula.
  2. Form burger patties using 1/2 cup of the mixed burger. A burger press works best for this task.  Spray the press lightly with oil to prevent sticking in the press (will also help prevent sticking when grilling).  If doing by hand – moisten hands with water lightly to shape burgers. 
  3. Place shaped burgers on a platter and chill until ready to grill.* 
  4. Grill over medium heat 5-6 minutes per side or until internal temperature reaches at least 165F    
  5. Serve immediately.


  • * Cut squares (4-5”) of parchment paper or wax paper to place burger on.  This will allow you to put them on the grill more easily.
