Ingredients

  • FOR THE YOGURT SAUCE:
  • 3 whole Canned Chili Peppers In Adobo Sauce, Chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Lime Juice
  • 6 ounces, weight Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 1 whole Lime, Zested
  • 1 pinch Salt To Taste
  • FOR THE TURKEY BURGERS:
  • 4 Tablespoons Grapeseed Or Olive Oil, Divided Use
  • ½ whole Red Onion, Finely Chopped
  • 1  Jalapeno, Seeded And Finely Chopped
  • 4 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Cumin
  • ½ cups Corn Kernels
  • ½ cups Canned Black Beans, Drained And Rinsed
  • 1 pound Ground Turkey Meat
  • FOR SERVING:
  • 3 whole Hamburger Buns, Toasted
  • 1 whole Avocado, Peeled, Pitted And Mashed
  • 1 Tablespoon Adobo Sauce From The Can Of Chipotle Chili Peppers
  • 3 slices Tomato, Onion And Lettuce, Or As Desired For Topping Your Burger

Preparation

For the chipotle yogurt sauce:
Add the chipotle chilis along with the adobo sauce into a bowl with the rest of the sauce ingredients. Stir to combine. Refrigerate until serving.

For the Southwest Turkey Burgers:
In a medium-sized skillet, heat half of the olive oil over medium heat and add the chopped onion. Saute until the onion begins to sweat, soften and become fragrant, about 8 minutes. Add the jalapeno, garlic cloves, salt and cumin. Saute another 3 to 5 minutes. Add the corn and sauté until corn kernels are plump and cooked, another 3 to 5 minutes.

Add the black beans and continue to cook, stirring consistently just until black beans are hot. Set the sauté pan aside and allow everything to cool to room temperature. Once the sauté mixture has cooled, combine it with the ground turkey meat in a large mixing bowl. Use your hands to mix the meat and sautéed veggies together. Form three burger patties.

In a cast iron skillet (or regular skillet), heat remaining half of the oil to medium-high heat. Place burger patties on the hot skillet and allow them to cook until the sides firm up, about 5 to 8 minutes. Flip the burgers and cook them on the other side until the burgers feel firm when poked and are cooked all the way through, another 5 to 8 minutes.

Open up the buns, put them on a tray and toast in the oven under your broiler. Spread the mashed avocado onto the cut side of the three burger buns. Set patties on top of avocado, douse with chipotle yogurt sauce, add a slice of fresh tomato, red onion and lettuce to your burgers. Add the top bun and scarf it up!
