Taco Turkey Burger with Homemade Guac.jpg

Incredibly easy weeknight meal with a healthy twist! Next time, I will be adding onion into the burgers!

  • 3 lbs. ground turkey
  • 1.5 packets taco seasoning
  • 1/2 c. fresh cilantro, chopped fine
  • 1 large jalapeno, seeds removed and diced
  • olive oil
  • hamburger buns
  • romaine lettuce leaves
  • guacamole
    • 4 ripe avocados
    • 1 lime, juiced
    • 1 Roma tomato, diced and drained
    • 1/2 red onion, diced
    • 1/4 c. cilantro, chopped fine
    • salt and pepper
    • 2 garlic cloves, minced


  1. Heat a thin layer of olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the ground turkey, taco seasoning, cilantro, and jalapeño. Use a spoon or your hands and mix until evenly combined. Portion out about 1/4 c. mixture and form into a thin burger. Place down in the hot oil. Allow to cook and brown for about 8 minutes of both sides (time may vary). Once a nice brown caramelized color forms, flip them and cook the other side. Remove and place on a plate when both sides are cooked.
  3. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the avocado, lime juice, salt, pepper, and garlic. Use a fork to mash the avocado until smooth. Add in the remaining ingredients and stir until combined.
  4. To assemble, smear a spoonful of guacamole on one half of a bun. Add a large lettuce leaf, and then top with the turkey burger.

Yields 8 servings.

Eat, Bork, and Be Merry!
