Turkey Burgers With Avocado Sauce!

Ok so it's grilling season and no one wants to be stuck over a hot stove. This is a tasty recipe that from start to finish only takes about 45 mins. It can be found on page 200 of the Taste of Home Cookbook All New Edition.

1 cup fresh or frozen (thawed) corn
1/2 cup chopped red onion
1 small red pepper chopped (I used a green bell)
2 jalapenos seeded and minced
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 cloves garlic minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/8 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1lbs extra lean ground turkey.
1 medium ripe avocado peeled
1/2 cup fat free sour cream
2 tablespoon fresh minced cilantro (I left that out, Carson hates it so I used parsley)
2 teaspoons lime juice
1 garlic clove minced
1/8 teaspoon salt
4 whole wheat hamburger buns.
1. In a large skillet, saute the onions, corn, and peppers in oil until crisp tender. Stir in the lime juice, garlic, salt, cumin, chili powder, and oregano; cook 1 minute longer. Transfer to a large bowl and cool slightly.(Note: This can be done on the grill if it has a gas stove eye, it was just to hot out that day for me.)

2. Crumble turkey over mixture and mix well, shape into four burgers and refrigerate for at least 30 min.
3. For sauce, in a small bowl mash the avocado with the sour cream, cilantro, lime juice, garlic, and salt. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
4. If grilling the burgers, coat grill rack with cooking spray before starting the grill. (Note: If you do it with the grill light it will make a huge flame and scare the piss outta you.) Grill burgers covered over medium heat for 7 minutes on each side, or until meat thermometer reads 165 and juices run clear.

5. Place Burgers on buns, top each with about 1/4 cup avocado sauce. Serve with lettuce, cheese, tomato, and onion if desired.
So these burgers tasted amazing! The left overs we took for lunch made both of us the envy of our coworkers. I would give these a 6 on the skill level. It took quite a bit of chopping and mixing, but they are so worth trying.
