Say "goodbye" to plain old burgers and make these delicious, mouth-watering Tex-Mex turkey burgers. Every bit as delicious as your typical burger with a mildly spicy blend of seasonings, avocado, and pepperjack cheese.
Prepare the guacamole by stirring together mashed avocado and lime juice, and adding salt to taste. Set aside.
Stir together the spices for the Tex-Mex Seasoning. Divide in half.
Stir together mayo (or sour cream) and half of Tex-Mex Seasoning. Set aside.
In a large bowl combine ground turkey and remaining half of the Tex-Mex Seasoning. Mix well by hand, then form into 4 equal-sized patties.
Grill burger patties for about 6 minutes on each side over medium heat til browned and cooked through.
Top each patty with a slice of cheese, cover the grill and allow the cheese to get melty (about 1-2 minutes).
Assemble turkey burgers by slathering mayo sauce on the bottom bun, then top with the turkey burger patty, followed by a big dollop of guacamole, some shredded lettuce, and the top of the bun. Serve and enjoy!
Turkey burger patties: you will want to make your hamburger patties about the same width as your hamburger buns. If using pre-formed patties, simply rub the Tex-Mex Seasoning into both sides of the patty rather than mixing it into the ground turkey. Cheese swaps: provolone or colbyjack cheese also go great with this burger!Make ahead: the burger patties and Tex-Mex sauce can be made up to 24 hours ahead of time and chilled. (The guacamole should be made immediately before serving.)
