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
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)
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.
