Turkey Taco Burgers with Guacamole

We enjoyed these burgers back in August, and I just realized I never shared them. These were delicious. In my book, almost anything topped in guacamole is a winner. We are hoping to pull out a few more grilling recipes before the cooler weather settles here. This week isn't looking good because everyday is showing rain! The other obstacle we now run into on a weeknight is how early it is getting dark. We will be making these burgers again soon, whether it is on the grill or indoors on our griddler.

These are a Rachael Ray recipe that I spotted on Adventures in Marriage.

For the burgers you need:
*1 pound ground turkey breast
*1 small red onion, 1/2 grated and 1/2 minced
*1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
*1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
*1 1/2 teaspoons ground coriander
*1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
*1/4 cup taco sauce
*Salt and pepper
*4 Kaiser rolls

For the guacamole you need:
*3 ripe avocados, flesh removed from skin, pit removed and discarded
*2 large cloves garlic, minced
*juice of 1 lime
*3 plum tomatoes, seeded and finely chopped
*1/4 cup cilantro leaves, chopped

1. Place the ground turkey in a mixing bowl. Add the grated red onion, shredded cheddar, ground cumin, ground coriander, chili powder, taco sauce, salt and some pepper. Mix to combine; divide into 4 patties.

2, Grill burgers on each side for 6-7 minutes, or until cooked through.

3. While the burgers are cooking, make the guacamole. Place the avocados in the bottom of a mixing bowl. Add the minced garlic, and the lime juice. Mash together, add more salt and pepper to taste. Stir in the tomatoes, remaining minced onion and cilantro.

4. Toast rolls if desired. Place the burgers on the bottom of the toasted rolls, then top with a spoonful of guacamole.
