Guacamole (or Avocado) Turkey Burgers 21 Day Fix Meal Plan

Unfortunately, In-N-Out and Five Guys aren't on the meal plan for the 21 Day Fix, so if I have a burger craving, I have to make do. But this was BEYOND "making do" --- it was delicious!

And easy. And when those two combine, I'm all hands on deck.

What You Need:

  • Mrs. Dash Extra Spicy Seasoning
  • Mrs. Dash Original Blend
  • Fresh Chopped Jalapeños
  • Fresh Chopped Onion (about 1/4 or less)
  • Pepper Jack Cheese slices
  • Head of Lettuce (we did lettuce wraps vs. the bun, saving those carbs for another day!)
  • Guac or avacado 
  • Lean Ground Turkey

  • Put the lean ground turkey in a large bowl, start to mix it up and smash it around (yay its gooey and soft---hope you're not freaked out by raw!)
  • Add the two Dash seasonings to the ground turkey, I didn't really measure this part since we're all a tad picky on how much we like things seasoned. I personally like it hot as hell, so I added a bit more spice! So do as needed or as you like
  • Chop up half the jalapeño then add to the turkey
  • Either add raw chopped onion, or sautee the onion and then add to the turkey (I did raw, but I wish I would have done sautéed because that sounds wayyyyy better!)
  • Mix the ground turkey well so that everything is pretty even throughout. 
  • Turn on the grill (I have my handy dandy George Foreman) 
  • Coat the burgers lightly with olive oil so they don't stick! (I also sprayed the grill just in case)
  • Separate the turkey mix into patties, then lay on the grill, Cook as long as desired--but make sure there is no pink in the middle..
  • Once done grilling, add the cheese on top to melt. Top off with avocado or guac, ketchup and whatever else you fancy, then wrap up in the lettuce! and VOILA! 

I also made some home made sweet potato fries… recipe is HERE
