Jalapeño and Cheese Turkey Burgers


These burgers are seriously the bomb.com! I like to eat mine open faced on a toasted slice of sprouted wheat bread. You can bun the whole thing, or have it protein style sans bread. If you do add a slice of bread be sure to add another yellow container to your fixate portions. These are GREAT for meal prep and keep well in the fridge.


20oz lean ground turkey
2 jalapeños, finely chopped (leave in seeds to make it spicy)
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 red onion
1 tomato
1 head of lettuce
salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Place ground turkey, 1 finely chopped jalapeño, shredded cheddar cheese, and salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Combine well.
  2. Divide the mixture into five equal portions, then shape these into patties.
  3. Heat grill or frying pan to medium/high heat and spray with coconut oil or non-stick spray.
  4. Add patties to pan or grill and cook on each side for roughly 5 minutes each, or until no longer pink. Remove from heat.
  5. Once cool, place the burgers into your food storage containers; add one lettuce leaf, one thick slice of tomato, one slice of red onion, and ½ cup baked sweet potato fries. Place in refrigerator.


4 sweet potatoes, rinsed and dried
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp pink himalayan sea salt
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp paprika


  1. Heat oven to 450° F
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Peel and cut sweet potato into 1/4 inch wide strips.
  4. Place fries into a bowl and toss with olive oil, and seasonings.
  5. Spread fries onto the baking sheet in a single layer, being sure to not overlap or crowd them.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes, turn and then another 10 minutes for 20 minutes total, or until the fries turn a golden brown color.
  7. Let cool for 5-10 minutes before storing in an airtight container. Place in refrigerator.


    Fixate Containers: 1 red, 1 green, 1 yellow, ½ blue
