Paleo Green Chili Burgers (fast and easy)

Paleo Green Chili Burgers

Here’s a great idea for dressing up a pound of ground beef:  Paleo Green Chili Burgers. Not too spicy of a chili kick, and quick as a flash to make. These high protein, low carb burgers are perfect when you need a quick, convenient, paleo main dish.


My family tops Paleo Green Chili Burgers with our favorites: Paleo guacamole, tomato, red onion and dill pickles. Then we slide them onto a pile of freshly rinsed romaine lettuce leaves and dig in!


I like to change-up the veggies I use in the burgers, depending on what is in season. Chopped spinach or red bell peppers make a yummy addition. Feel free to add your own favorites to these Paleo Green Chili Burgers. Tell us in the comments what you come up with!

Paleo Green Chili Burgers

  • Prep time:  10 minutes
  • Cook time:  5 minutes
  • Servings:  4
  • 1 pound ground beef – best if organic & grass-fed (or chicken, turkey, bison or buffalo meat)
  • 1 (4 oz.) can diced green chilies (mild or hot, your choice. I use mild.)
  • 1/2 cup scallions (green onions), very finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup fresh cilantro or parsley, minced
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. chili powder

1) Mix all ingredients together and form into patties.

2) Grill or pan fry to desired level of done-ness.


Paleo Chili Burgers are easy to shape into patties ahead of time and chill or freeze. Works great if you make a double, or triple batch, and freeze half of the uncooked burgers for another time.
