Spicy Homemade Burgers

As much as we are big fans of classic burgers like Shake Shack and In-N-Out we’d much rather make our own, healthier versions at home. Packed with spices, veggies and protein we love these burgers with ground chicken or turkey. They’re super easy to make and can be made in the oven, stove or grill. Depending on how you usually make your burgers, just go with that! We always like to say you never need to actually follow our recipes step-by-step because we know everyone has their own way of doing things, so follow exactly what we recommend, use us as your guide or don’t listen to us at all, we’re here to provide inspiration and the the most flavorful ingredients for your next dish!
For the burgers
  • 1 pound ground turkey, chicken or your meat of choice (you can also use frozen burgers if needed)
  • ½ white onion diced
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tsp grated or minced ginger
  • 2 green chilies minced
  • ½ cup cooked quinoa (optional)
  • ½ cup cilantro chopped
  • 1½ teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil or avocado oil
  • 4 burger buns or sub for romaine or butter lettuce for a low carb option
  • 4tbsp Icon Spice Mix or Tikka Masala Spice Mix 


  • Butter or romaine Lettuce
  • 1 tomato sliced
  • 1 red onion sliced
  • 1 avocado sliced
  • 1 jalapeno sliced
  • Yellow mustard
  • Ketchup
  • Cilantro green chutney



  • Preheat the oven or grill to 375 degrees F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with olive or avocado oil
  • In a medium mixing bowl add all the ingredients for burger patties and mix well
  • Shape each patty quarter into a round ball and place on baking sheet; a few inches apart from each other
  • Gently press the meat into a flat 3 to 4-inch patty. Press the middle of the patty with your thumb or with the back of a spoon, this will allow the patty surface to cook flat and not puff up.
  • Lightly spray over the burgers with oil 
  • Cooking Options
    • Skillet: Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat and cook the patties in the skillet, turning once, about 10 minutes
    • Grill: Lightly oil and preheat the grill. Place burgers on the grill, turning once, about 10 minutes
    • Oven: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the patties on the baking sheet and bake for about 15-20 minutes
    • Air fryer: Preheat the air fryer to 360 degrees F and place patties inside, air fry for about 15 minutes, flipping halfway through
