So, did you make it to a Hatch Chile roasting this past weekend???? Well, if you didn’t, no worries… you still have a couple of weekends left to stock up – Melissa’s Produce has a handy list on their website that you should check out to find the nearest roasting in your area!!! And if you need a reason to go well…. How about this Hatch Chile Turkey Burger with Lime Aoili – a perfect burger for Labor Day!
Yes, I know, the “obsession” continues – I honestly can’t get enough of these chiles – and trust me, they beat anything out of a can hands down! And if you head to a roast, well, half the work is done for you. The pay off is huge – you can store enough of these Hatch Chiles in the freezer to last until next season – to pull out for these Hatch Chile Turkey Burgers , or maybe some Chile con Queso or a Hatch Chile Margarita– the possibilities are indeed endles
So let’s talk about these Hatch Chile Turkey Burgers. These are not those dried out, tough “I could probably use these for the soles of my shoes” kind of burgers. Nope, these are moist and juicy! The secret?? A little olive oil and sautéed onions and of course, a good dose of Hatch chiles! Paired with a little lime aioli these burgers are a hit with even the most “die hard” beef burger fans!!!
If you are like me and can’t get enough of these Hatch chiles, well, these burgers would be terrific paired with some Hatch Chile Pesto Potatoes and a Hatch Chile Margarita to wash it all down!
