Green Chile Ranch Turkey Smash Burgers

Give beef a run for its money with this flavor-packed Green Chile Ranch Turkey Smash Burger recipe. Thin patties are amped up with green chiles and Hidden Valley® Ranch Seasoning. Quick enough for lunch yet satisfying enough for dinner, they’re best topped with fresh avocado and served with an icy cold anything.

  1. 1

    In a mixing bowl, thoroughly combine the turkey, ranch seasoning mix and chiles. Shape into 4 patties about 1 inch thick.
