We judged hundred of burgers in a nationwide contest and found a winner: a Southwestern patty with a mean, green kick.

Makes: 4 servings

Prep: 10 mins

Cook: 10 mins

Ingredients
  • 1 avocado, halved and pitted
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • Salt
  • 1 pound ground turkey thigh meat
  • 1/2 cup salsa verde
  • 4 slices  pepper Jack cheese (about 4 ounces)
  • 4 kaiser rolls, split
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro leaves, coarsely chopped
  • 2 small green or red tomatoes, sliced
Directions
  1. Scoop the avocado flesh into a small bowl. Add the mayonnaise and garlic and mash with a fork until well combined but chunky. Season with salt and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the ground turkey and salsa. Divide the mixture to form 4 patties.
  3. In a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, cook the patties for 4 minutes on one side. Flip and top each with a slice of cheese; cover and cook for 4 minutes more.
  4. Spread the avocado aioli on the split side of each roll bottom and cover with 1/4 cup cilantro. Top with a patty and 2 tomato slices; set the roll tops into place.
