Taco Turkey Burgers with Spicy Avocado Spread

When one has avocados, one must use avocados. I think that’s written down somewhere important. So, being a law-abiding human being, I realized that’s what dinner was going to have to be. I was in a I-Feel-Like-Cooking-But-I-Feel-Like-Cooking-Something-Kinda-Easy mood. Tacos are great with avocado, but they were too simple. I wanted to put in some effort. So I decided, instead of tacos, I’ll make turkey burgers using the taco seasoning with spicy avocado spread! Which, funnily enough, were easier than tacos.

My dad, who shakes his head smirking over anything that isn’t completely within the ordinary (and who lately has been so fond of making very whippy mashed potatoes that feel more like glue), said I can’t just make a normal dinner. I said, smacking my head stupidly, that I’d forgotten to make the “gluey” whipped potatoes, but I don’t think he got it.


Taco Turkey Burger with Spicy Avocado Spread


Taco Turkey Burger

1 lb Ground Turkey

1 packet Taco Seasoning


Combine ground turkey and taco seasoning until the seasoning is evenly distributed throughout the taco. Shape the ground meat into patties and fry over medium heat for about 4 minutes on each side or until cooked through. Drain fat.


Spicy Avocado Spread (all ingredient to taste)

2 Avocados

1/2 red onion, minced

3 cloves garlic, minced

2 teaspoons lime juice

1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1 teaspoon chili powder


Mix all ingredients until evenly combined and spread over turkey burgers between toasted bread, lettuce, and tomato.

    You know what is a travesty? When people make burgers and don’t add onion. Burgers need onion… they were born to have thick, juicy wedges of raw onion slammed in between the bread and the meat… seriously! Seeing this colour slice of red onion fills me with joy and happiness at the thought that I have found a kindred spirit 😉

    These looks delish – and I love that you made them with toasted bread too, instead of the regular burger buns! Thanks for sharing, and for dropping by my site 🙂

      Thanks! And I agree about the onions! I love ’em. I also love tomatoes, and was sad to realize I had forgotten them for the photo.

      I loved your site, everything looked amazing and unique! I can’t wait to keep visiting.

    The spicy avocado spread sounds delicious! I often put avocados in my sandwiches, but usually I just slice them. Next time I’m going to try this dip!

    The picture looks as delicious as the burgers actually were! And wow, they were so simple!
