Fajita Turkey Burgers

These were FANTASTIC – we all thought so.  There are few things in life that I love more than guacamole.  It’s highly recommended that you put guac on this burger.

I could eat 82, 546 of these, right now.

Note: this makes 8 burgers.  We halved it.

Turkey Fajita Burgers


2 pounds ground turkey
3 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons dried thyme
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
1 green pepper
1 red pepper
2 jalapeños
4 cloves garlic
½ onion
¼ cups cilantro
1 teaspoon hot sauce
½ cups mexican cheese (optional)
8 burger buns

Preparation Instructions

In a large mixing bowl, add meat. In a small bowl, mix the cumin, thyme, and salt and pepper together and add to the meat. In a food processor, add seeded green pepper, red pepper, and the jalapeño. Pulse until chopped finely. (We just chopped everything very finely.)  Add to meat. Mince in garlic. Add finely chopped onion. Add the cilantro and hot sauce. Mix well. Form into patties.

Cook in a skillet over medium high heat for 5 to 6 minutes on each side. Place cheese (optional) over the patties in the last 2
minutes of cooking to melt. Serve on burger buns with desired toppings.  Suggested: salsa, tomato, avocado or guacamole.
