Fiesta Turkey Burger
Servings: 4 Prep 10 mins Chill 30 mins Grill 8 mins


  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1/3 cup shredded Mexican-style taco cheese blend
  • 2 tablespoons minced red pepper
  • 2 tablespoons coarsely grated sweet onion
  • 4 tortillas
  • 2 cups shredded iceberg lettuce
  • 1/2 cup prepared guacamole
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream

Make It

1. Gently combine ground turkey, cheese blend, red pepper and onion in a large bowl. Shape into 4 patties about 1/2 inch thick. Place on a small cookie sheet lined with plastic wrap. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes to combine flavors.

2. Heat gas or charcoal grill to medium-hot. Using a long-handled brush, season rack with vegetable oil.

3. Grill patties, covered, for 4 minutes. Turn and grill 4 minutes longer or until patties register 165 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer.

4. Place a tortilla on a flat surface. Mound 1/2 cup of lettuce on one half of the tortilla. Place a burger on the lettuce and top with 2 tablespoons of guacamole and 1/2 tablespoon of sour cream. Fold the tortilla in half, covering the filling. Repeat to make four burgers total and serve.

To Broil:

5. Place patties on a broiler pan and broil 4 to 5 inches from the heat for 8 minutes, turning once, or until they register 165 degrees F on an instant- read thermometer.
