Mexican Turkey Burgers

Serves 6


– 1 (20 ounce) package extra-lean ground turkey breast
– 1/4 chopped cilantro
– 1/4 cup diced red onion
– 1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
– 1/3 cup diced fresh mushrooms
– 1 tablespoon Mexican seasoning for fajita seasoning
– 1/4 cup low-fat Mexican-blend cheese
– 1 teaspoon minced garlic
– 6 whole grain buns or Arnold Sandwich Thins
– 6 tablespoons salsa
– 1 1/2 medium avocados, peeled, pitted, and thinly sliced
– 6 tablespoons fat-free Greek-style yogurt


In a large mixing bowl, combine the turkey, cilantro, onion, bell pepper, mushrooms, seasoning, cheese, and garlic. There will be about 24 ounces (1 1/2 pounds) of mixture, or 4 cups. Divide into 6 (4-ounce) patties.

Grill the burgers for 3 minutes on each side, or until the inside is no longer pink. Serve on whole grain buns or Sandwich Thins topped with salsa, avocado, and yogurt (instead of sour cream).
