Turkey Burgers & Sweet Potato Fries


  • 1 pound ground turkey (I prefer 85% lean, it has more fat which makes for a better burger!) If your ground turkey has excess liquid, be sure to set on paper towels to remove the juices.

  • 1/2-3/4 of one jalapeƱo pepper, minced(I like it hot so I use 3/4)

  • 1 medium size shallot, peeled and minced

  • zest and of one lime, and 2 teaspoon lime juice

  • 2 Tablespoon chopped cilantro

  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • 1 teaspoon cumin 

  • 1/2 a teaspoon sea salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

  • guacamole 

  • poached egg (optional)


  1. Note: The ground turkey I buy is the consistency of hamburger. If yours seems to have extra liquid, set on paper towels to drain juices.

  2. Place turkey, herbs, spices and lime in bowl and use hands to mix well.

  3. Form into four patties.

  4. Place pan on medium heat.

  5. Add olive oil to bottom of pan.

  6. When pan is hot, place patties in pan and cook for about 5 minutes each side or until cooked through.

  7. Top with guacamole


  • 2 ripe avocados

  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt

  • 1 Tbsp of fresh lime juice or lemon juice

  • 2 Tbsp to 1/4 cup of minced red onion or thinly sliced green onion

  • 2 tablespoons cilantro (leaves and tender stems), finely chopped

  • A dash of freshly grated black pepper

  • 1/2 ripe tomato, seeds and pulp removed, chopped

  • 1 Cut avocado, remove flesh: Cut the avocados in half. Remove seed. Score the inside of the avocado with a blunt knife and scoop out the flesh with a spoon. (See How to Cut and Peel an Avocado.) Place in a bowl.

    2 Mash with a fork: Using a fork, roughly mash the avocado. (Don't overdo it! The guacamole should be a little chunky.)

    3 Add salt, lime juice, and the rest: Sprinkle with salt and lime (or lemon) juice. The acid in the lime juice will provide some balance to the richness of the avocado and will help delay the avocados from turning brown.

    Add the chopped onion, cilantro, and black pepper
