Southwest turkey burgers with avocado dressing

As you know, I love burgers, especially turkey burgers. So when I find a new recipe for one, I have to try it. This one was no only delicious when freshly grilled, but we had leftovers and they were great reheated the next day for lunches! The dressing really makes this a perfect burger!
We topped our burgers with the dressing, provolone cheese, spinach and tomatoes..YUM!


1 lb ground turkey breast
1 egg
1/2 cup whole wheat breadcrumbs
4 oz can diced green chiles
1 1/2 tsp chili powder
1 1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper

Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl. Using your hand, mix until all the ingredients are blended together.
Cook the burgers either on an outdoor grill or an indoor pan; you want to cook them about 6 minutes on each side until completely cooked through.

1 Hass avocado
1 cup 0% fat Greek yogurt
1 lemon, juiced
1 clove garlic, minced
salt and pepper, to taste
1 Tbsp fresh dill, finely chopped (optional)
1 Tbsp flat leaf parsley, finely chopped (optional)

Mash avocado in a bowl. Mix in remaining ingredients and refrigerate until ready to use. Yield: 2 cups (16 servings – 2 tablespoons each).

Top burgers and enjoy!

    These were good!! I usually don’t like turkey burgers because they dry out, but not these! 🙂 Happy weekend!
