Chipotle-Cheddar Turkey Burger with Avocado Cream


When I saw this recipe I was intrigued. Chipotle, cheddar and avocado are key words for me. I really like all three ingredients so combining them together in a burger seemed like a no-brainer for me.

Plus, it's a turkey burger so it's even healthier. And I used the Sargento thin sliced 45 calorie cheese AND no bun. That's like equivalent to eating plain salad, right? ;)

    • 1 lb. lean ground turkey
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, minced
    • 1 shallot, minced
    • 2 tbsp. fresh cilantro, chopped
    • salt and pepper
    • 4 burger buns
    • 4 slices cheddar cheese
    • toppings: lettuce, tomato
    for the avocado cream:
    • 1/2 ripe avocado
    • 1/4 cup sour cream
    • juice of 1/2 a lime
    • salt
1. Preheat a grill to medium high heat.
2. In a large bowl combine ground turkey, garlic, chipotle peppers, shallot, cilantro, salt and pepper. Form into 4 patties.
3. Grill for 3-4 minutes then add cheese and grill 1-2 minutes or more until cheese has melted.
4. Meanwhile, combine the avocado, sour cream and lime juice together in a bowl. Mash until smooth then season to taste with salt.
5. Assemble the burger with desired toppings and a generous heap of the avocado cream.

This is by-far one of my favorite burgers ever and I like me a lot of burgers. The chipotles in the patty gave just enough heat for the avocado cream to cool it down.
