Hatch Chili Burger

You guys. Look at this Hatch Chili Burger. I’m like getting really really good at this Keto thing.

Hatch Chili Burger- The Seasonal Junkie

Literally while taking a bite of my hatch chili burger, I had this thought. Do I not know how to taste anymore? Because surely I cannot think that this bunless hatch chili burger… made of turkey. Is a gift from god. And then on my second bite, I was like damn Brookie, you got this keto thing, you got it.

7 Days. That’s how long it’s been….

Hatch Chili Burger- The Seasonal Junkie

Since sugar and bread and all of that. My morning routine has been many sunrises paired with bullet proof coffee and…. I kinda like it! At one point I was having this like existential realization of “Is this what it is to be a blogger?” “Putting all these weird things in my coffee and just liiiking it?” I’ll let you know when I find out, but from scrolling through my insta feed, I feel like I’m on the right track. Or maybe it’s the sugar withdrawals.

With this new Keto life being so new, it has been pretty fun trying to come up with recipes. This hatch chili burger just hit me over the head, it wasn’t even planned. I always feel like the best recipes happen that way.

Basically we ultimately failed keto the first four days because I had managed to spend $200.00 at Sprouts and out of food in 4 days. So a Costco trip was in order and guess what?! We spend $262.00 and I’m very sure we will have food for the next 2 1/2 weeks. My biggest recommendation for keto is to definitely bulk buy.

So there I was, in my newly stocked fridge.

And I remembered we bought these Roasted Hatch Chiles. And it dawned on me. Stick them in the burgers, Brooke. Stick them in the burgers. And wa-la I bequeath to you this magical Hatch Chili Burger recipe. And if you’re not keto put a bun on these bad boys, I bet they will be equally amazing!

    Your post made me laugh, being on a new diet is hard! I dont think it’s the lack of sugar you’ve had that make these burgers good…they look off the hook delicious! I’m definitely going to give them a go, I may even skip the bun 😉
