Mexican Turkey Burgers

Mexican Turkey Burgers won me over, how about you? I pretty much think you are going to love it. I’m pretty pretty sure! So try this today!

I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again. I don’t eat hamburgers. I hate when people are super picky, but yet I still cannot eat a hamburger. The texture, grease and just overall taste bothers me. This is not true with Turkey Burgers. The texture is a little more smooth and the flavor is much more up my alley. We decided to try Mexican Turkey Burgers and mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm! So good! The hubs decided that because he is so used to Sweet And Tangy Turkey burgers and the Mar-A-Lago burger that are both served with a sauce that he wanted one for next time. We’ve made a good one, but I’m still perfecting that version so for now just play with this one.

I love that the burger has a little kick to it, but not enough to burn your mouth. It’s perfect with the cool avocado. Sadly I still get no cheese so this burger was hubby’s. LAME.


I pretty much think you are going to love it. I don’t know why, but for some reason with the weather cooling off a hot (turkey) burger and fries has been sounding so good to me. Isn’t it usually a summer thing? I guess I’m just all American. haha

Are Avocados Good For You?

Avocados offer nearly 20 vitamins and minerals in every serving.

Avocados are high in potassium, fiber and folate.

Avocados are low calorie and contain healthy fats.

Can Turkey Burgers Be Pink?

Turkey burgers should be cooked to an internal temperature of 165 degrees.

Turkey can remain pink even after cooking to a safe minimum internal temperature of 165 °F. 

How Do You Tell If Avocados Are Ripe?

If the avocado yields to firm gentle pressure you know it’s ripe and ready-to-eat.

You can tell if an avocado is ripe by pressing gently on the stem end.

If the stem presses into the avocado, it is ripe.

  • I went through a phase where I couldn't eat beef hamburger's because I kept looking for nasty ligaments. White turkey meat is so much better – one of the best discoveries of my life. Your burger looks delicious!
