Spicy Turkey and Bean Burger Patties

Spicy Turkey and Bean Burger Patties

These turkey burgers came out AMAZING and a definite repeat for a meal in this house.

Each burger patty is 1 WW, 246 calories and has 41.3 grams of protein (without bun and toppings) so, the possibilities are endless. 

You can use these for so many things and meal prepping is a perfect option. 

Here is what you need:

  • Air fryer or oven
  • Ground 98-99% fat free turkey or ground 98-99 fat free chicken 
  • Garlic powder
  • Onion powder
  • Dak’s Street Taco seasoning or taco seasoning of choice
  • Ground cumin
  • Paprika
  • Hidden Valley ranch seasoning
  • Papa’s Pepper EXTREME or cayenne pepper
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • Dak’s Green Zest (optional)
  • Rotel tomatoes
  • Canned black beans
  • Fresh cilantro
  • Nonfat Greek yogurt
  • Fat free cheddar cheese
  • Cooking spray
  • Bread or bun of choice
  • Toppings of choice

Here is the amazing GoWise air fryer I use with a family of 5. It not only works great, it fits SO MUCH inside. Grab yours HERE

SUPER lean ground turkey and chicken can get super dry and it is also extremely bland if you DO NOT add a bunch of seasonings. Other than that, it is great and makes for an awesome zero WW points and low calorie option.

Garlic and onion powder are a must in A LOT of my recipes.

I use Dak’s Taco Knight or Dak’s Street Taco seasoning but if you do not have those you can use whatever taco seasoning you would like. If you would like to try Dak’s Spices click HERE and use code CHEFALLIE for a discount.

Another great seasoning to always have on hand especially with a Mexican and or Tex-Mex vibe recipes

Another great seasoning that I use on A LOT of things. If you do not have this, you can just use some Italian seasoning, Oregano or just leave it out.

This is a SUPER spicy seasoning but a great one. If you do not have this you can use cayenne instead. 

Hidden Valley ranch seasoning I get in bulk from the wholesale stores since I use it often in recipes and it adds great flavor. 

Salt and pepper to taste

Here is what I add to the burger patty for extra flavor and volume.


You can use whatever cheese you want. but this one works out great for the WW community and for the lower calories.

Nonfat Greek yogurt helps with keeping the ground turkey moist and not dry out during the cooking process. 

You can leave the cilantro out if you do not like it, but I LOVE it!

Here is how to make it:

  1. Preheat the air fryer or oven to 390 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl add the ground turkey/chicken.
  3. Add all of the seasonings, rotel, black beans, yogurt, cheese and cilantro.
  4. Mix until combine but make sure to NOT over mix. That’ll create a dry and tough burger.
  5. Divide into 4 even burger patties.
  6. Place onto a greased air fryer tray or basket.
  7. Spray the top of the burger patties with cooking spray.
  8. Place into the air fryer for 10-15 minutes (flipping halfway through and spraying opposite side).
  9. Take out at 165 degrees and let rest.
  10. Add cheese if you’d like and place back into the air fryer to melt
  11. Add your choice of toppings and bread/bun and enjoy!

    Allie, the spicy turkey and bean burger was delicious!! So moist, flavorful and filling! I used chicken as that is what I had on hand. I will definitely make this again! Quick question, how much taco seasoning should we use? I didnโ€™t see it listed in the ingredients, only above for what you need to make it. Thanks!

        Hello Allie! I have added these spicey turkey and bean burgers to my menu for the week! I’m very excited to try them. I was just wondering, what did you use for sauce on your burger? I didn’t see it mentioned in the recipe or description but I certainly could have missed it. Thanks!
