These burgers are a major staple in the Geoffroy household and great for when you need to whip up something quick in a pinch! We typically have these ingredients on hand so it makes it easy for a quick week night meal or having friends over and want a lighter burger. They are super simple and deliver the yummy!
Makes 4 burgers
adapted from Cooking Thin
1 1/2 lb lean ground turkey
4 oz can diced green chiles
salt and pepper to taste
reduced fat pepper jack cheese slices
whole wheat hamburger buns
In large mixing bowl, use hands to mix together turkey, chiles, salt and pepper. Form into patties with hands. Heat grill or grill pan to med/high heat. Grill patties for about 8 minutes each side.
For grilled buns, drizzle olive oil on inside of top and bottom of buns. Grill oiled side down on grill or grill pan for about 2 minutes. Keep eye on them to not burn.
Top patties with cheese, tomato, onion and avocado.
