Fire up the grill for these Jalapeño Ranch Turkey Burgers, an easy summer burger recipe that is that gluten free, dairy free, paleo, and Whole30 approved!
Summer is winding down, but I’m not stopping with the grilling recipes. Well actually this might be my last one, but it’s pretty much summer until October here so we will be using our grill in full force. The end of summer is going to be pretty fun for me! We leave on Saturday morning for a quick 2 day trip to the east coast to celebrate one of my best friend’s wedding. We have known each other for over 15 years – which is pretty crazy to think about – and I’m so excited to be able to share this special day with her.
After that, I have two weeks home, I’m doing a CrossFit competition with some friends, and then am heading to Asheville, NC for a handful of days with my family. I wasn’t planning on going with them, but it worked out that I can go now and I’m really pumped. I have heard great things about the city. Then September is even more nuts with travel – I’ll get to that in another post though.
With the next two months being crazy, we are relying on all the easy recipes, like these ranch turkey burgers. I have a confession though. I am not really the biggest fan of ranch. Except for the brief period when I was a kid and that was a solid way for me to eat veggies and salad. I think I had a little too much of it and got sick of it. Then I switched to honey mustard and that has been my to-go since. It is still one of my favorite condiments (if you like it too, check out this spicy one that is bomb!).
But times have changed! I recently discovered Primal Kitchen condiments and have grown to like ranch again! Primal Kitchen ranch is made with avocado oil, egg, and spices – kind of just like you would make homemade mayo + ranch seasonings. You can definitely use homemade ranch if you have that on hand. We did these pretty straight up with a lettuce bun, red onion, tomato, and then more ranch. You definitely are going to want to add more ranch 🙂
