Southwestern Turkey Burgers With Guacamole

turkey burgers with guacamole

I wanted to kick off the month by making a yummy yet filling lunch. I was at the grocery store and decided I needed to buy more meat besides chicken, so I purchased turkey burgers! These had peppers, tomatoes and spices already mixed into the meat, which means less work for me.

These turkey burgers have a good amount of protein and are a bit high in fat, but most of it cooked out anyways, and if you limit fat throughout the rest of the day, you will be fine.

After buying these, I craved a nice healthy burger, so I got to work and made up a turkey burger recipe.
