Turkey-Chorizo Burgers with Guacamole

Scott Phillips

Servings: 4

Adding chorizo to ground turkey boosts its flavor and makes these burgers juicier. Don’t use cured Spanish-style chorizo, though; instead, use the fresh Mexican-style sausage (learn more about the difference).

Ingredients

  • 1/2 lb. fresh pork chorizo, casings removed
  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • Kosher salt
  • Olive oil, for the grill
  • 1 medium ripe avocado, seeded and peeled
  • 2 tsp. cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 2 or 3 dashes hot pepper sauce, such as Tabasco
  • 4 rolls, split and toasted
  • 1 medium ripe tomato, sliced

Preparation

  • Prepare a medium (375°F) gas or charcoal grill fire.
  • Over a large bowl, break up the chorizo into small pieces. Add the turkey and 1/2 tsp. salt and mix well with your hands. Form into four 1/2-inch-thick patties. Press the center of each patty with 3 fingers to make an indentation to help it keep its shape during cooking.
  • Oil the grill grates and grill the burgers, covered, turning once, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center of a burger registers 165°F, about 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mash the avocado, vinegar, cumin, hot sauce, and 1/2 tsp. salt until fairly smooth.
  • Spread the guacamole over the bottom of each roll, top with a burger, tomato slices, and the top of the roll and serve.

    We didn't care for the texture and felt there was too much cumin in the guacamole. We would recommend the Banh Mi burgers on this site.
