Chipotle Turkey Burgers with Avocado and Salsa Verde

Recipe from: Amy Powell
Servings: 6

1 can chipotles in adobo sauce
2 pounds (7% fat) ground turkey
salt and pepper
oil
6 whole-wheat buns
1 medium red onion
1 ½ avocado
¾ cup salsa verde or other tomatillo salsa

Preheat a grill or grill pan on a medium high flame.

Remove six chipotles from the can reserving the adobo sauce. Chop the chipotles finely.

To a large bowl add the chopped chipotles, the ground turkey, and several tablespoons of the reserved adobo sauce. Add a couple cracks of black pepper and three to four pinches of Kosher salt. Mix with a wooden spoon or by hand to combine. Form into patties.

Lightly oil the grill or grill pan. Place burgers on grill. Depending on the thickness of the patties, this could take 3 to 4 minutes per side.

Meanwhile split the buns and throw on grill to toast or if there is no room wait to toast while burgers are resting once they have been removed from the grill.

Slice the avocados and the red onion.

To assemble burger, to each toasted bun add a cooked burger, top with two tablespoons of salsa, a quarter of an avocado, and some thinly sliced red onion.
