Made to recipe, subbing sourdough for the baguette because that's what we had on hand. We first combined the moistened bread, spices and peppers before adding the turkey then chilled the patties several hours prior to grilling. Hollowed-out the buns and toasted them on the grill. Garnished per recipe, also had some leftover onions from CL's spicy poblano burgers. Served with CL's golden corn salad. Flavorful burger, very good "football" supper. (CL's chipotle-poblano ketchup also goes well with this)

This was the first turkey burger I ever made, and I loved it! Roasting the peppers was a bit time-consuming. I might just sautee them to soften them a little next time. The flavor was great, though. There was a correction in another issue of CL that said to add the diced pepper with the turkey mixture. It does not actually say that in this recipe.

We loved this burger! The peppers were a little hard to figure out I didnt peel them like the recipe says and it was great! Will cook again!!!

This is the best Turkey Burger recipe I have ever eaten! The first time I made it I could not find poblano peppers so I substituted canned ortegas. It was great and that is what I use today. Also added fresh cilantro and avocado slices to the burger garnish.

Fantastic, moist turkey burgers - you'll never miss the beef! Roasting the peppers was definitely time-consuming, but the flavor was worth it. We used about a half-slice of low fat swiss cheese on each burger instead of the mayo. Great healthy meal for my family!

Nice flavors and just the right amount of heat - one of my poblanos was very spicy so I added only 1 1/2 peppers. A fast weeknight meal. I assembled the burgers in the afternoon and had them sit in the fridge until dinner. They firmed up and grilled nicely. A new family favorite!

We all really loved these! A bit spicier than I thought it would be with the Poblano chile's but it was delicious. A real keeper!
