  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1/2 pound chorizo sausage
  • 2 avocados, pit removed
  • 1/4 medium red onion
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 4 buns, cut in half and toasted
  • 4 slices of cheddar cheese, or whichever cheese you prefer to use
  • 4 slices of tomato


  • Preheat grill to high heat.
  • In a large bowl, gently combine ground turkey and chorizo then form four 1/2 inch thick patties (mine were definitely way thicker than this so try to keep them on the thinner side so it won't be so hard/messy to eat) and using your thumb, press down the center of the burger to keep the patty from puffing up when grilling.
  • In place the patties on the grill and cook for about 7-10 minutes or whenever the meat thermometer reads 165 degrees Fahrenheit in the center of the burger. Turn the grill to low heat and place the cheese slices on each patty and let it melt gently, about 1 minute.
  • While the burgers are cooking, mash the avocados with the back of a fork until mostly smooth. Mix in the red onion, lime, salt, and pepper.
  • To assemble the burger, spoon a heaping spoonful of guacamole on the bottom of the buns then add the tomato slice. Place the turkey chorizo patty on top of the tomato slice then place the other half of the bun on top. Repeat with all the other burgers.
