Southwest Turkey Burgers

Recipe from: Bon Appétit, Jul 2001, p80
Servings: 2

Shredded iceberg lettuce topped with ranch dressing is the perfect side dish. End with scoops of lime sorbet drizzled with tequila and sprinkled with lime peel.

10 ounces ground turkey
½ cup plus 2 tablespoons chopped green onions
6 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
2 teaspoons minced canned chipotle chiles
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 9- to 10-inch flour tortillas
4 tablespoons purchased guacamole
Purchased fresh salsa

Gently mix turkey, ½ cup green onions, 4 tablespoons cilantro, chipotle chiles and cumin in medium bowl. Form into two 7-inch long by 2½-inch wide patties. (Can be made 8 hours ahead. Cover and chill.)

Prepare barbecue (medium-high heat). Grill burgers until cooked through, about 5 minutes per side. Wrap tortillas in foil; grill until heated through. Unwrap tortillas; transfer to 2 plates. Spread 2 tablespoons guacamole down center of each tortilla. Place burgers atop guacamole. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons green onions and 2 tablespoons cilantro. Fold each tortilla to partially enclose burger. Serve with salsa.
