Jalapeno Turkey Burgers

We had these delicious burgers on the 4th of July and they were great! They had a spicy kick to them and were full of flavor, espically with creamy avocado and crunchy veggies. Yum! Perfect for the next time you want to bbq burgers!


1 lb. ground turkey
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
2 teaspoons chopped jalapeno
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
salt and pepper
hamburger buns

cheddar cheese
avocado, pitted and mashed with a bit of salt

1. In a medium bowl combine the ground turkey, onion, cilantro, garlic, jalapeno, cumin, paprika, salt and pepper. Mix your ingredients together with your hands and form in to 4-5 patties. Place them on a plate and let them rest for at least an hour. Letting your burgers sit in the fridge will make a HUGE difference on how they cook up on the grill. My turkey burgers used to kinda fall apart on the grill and not stay in thier shape. But letting them rest makes them turn out perfect!

2.  Heat your grill to medium high heat and grill your patties for 5-6 minutes per side. After you have flipped your burgers place a peice of cheese on each burger. Toast your buns, slather them in avocado, and assemble your delicious burgers and dig in!
