Serves: 4 Prep: 20min |Cook: 20min |Total: 40min
What You'll Need:
- 1 ripe avocado
- 2 tablespoons chopped sweet white onion (i used a red onion cuz that's what i had)
- 1 tablespoon salsa (i used just a plum tomato and chopped it)
- 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
- 2/3 cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained
- 1 large egg
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 2 teaspoons chili powder
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 pound lean ground turkey breast
- 4 small whole grain hamburger buns, split
- 4 slices tomato
- To make the guacamole: In a small bowl, mash the avocado with a fork until fairly smooth. Mix in the onion, salsa, lime juice, and salt. Cover tightly and set aside.
Like i said, i skipped the salsa and just chopped a tomato up instead... and used red onion instead of white. i also skipped the salt since G has high blood pressure and salt is a no-no for him...
- To make the burgers: Preheat the broiler. Coat the broiler pan rack with olive oil cooking spray.
- In a medium bowl, mash the beans to a chunky texture. Stir in the egg, chili powder, cumin, and salt until well blended. Add the ground turkey and mix first with a spoon, then gently with your hands, until well blended (mix lightly so burgers don't get tough). With moistened hands, shape mixture into 4 equal-sized patties. Place on the prepared broiler-pan rack.
i felt like these patties were definitely a generous size... depending on your taste, you could definitely probably make 5 or 6 smaller burgers out of what you have in the bowl.
- Broil the patties 4" to 6" from the heat for 6 to 7 minutes per side, until lightly browned, firm, and cooked through. Transfer to a plate. Place the buns on the broiler pan and toast.
- Place toasted buns on 4 plates. On the bun bottom, place a tomato slice and a burger. Spoon 2 tablespoons guacamole over each, cover with the bun top, and serve.
I made my burger with a nice arugala salad and some sweet potato fries... so delish! I highly recommend if you want a turkey burger with a little extra flavor and a kick!
PS. i finally used the new camera for something other than pictures of scooter and i'm loving the way these shots are coming out!
