Turkey Burger with Avacado Cream Sauce

This recipe really helps the turkey hamburger stay moist and juicy.

Complements of:

1 cup of fresh or frozen corn, thawed
1/2 cup red onions, chopped
1 small sweet red pepper, chopped
2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/8 teaspoon dried oregano
1 pound ground turkey breast

1 ripe avacodo, pilled
1/4 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons cilatro, minced
2 teaspoons lime juice
1 garlic clove, minced
1/8 teaspoon salt

For burgers: In large skillet saute corn, onion, red pepper, jalapeno in oil until crisp-tender. Stir in lime juice, garlic, salt, cumin, chili powder and oregano and saute 1 more minute. Transfer to a bowl and cool slightly. Crumble turkey over mixture and mix well. Shape into four burgers and refrigerate for 30+ minutes. Broil the burgers 4 inches from the heat for 5-7 on each side.
For sauce: In a small bowl mix all sauce ingredients together. Refrigerate until serving.
Eat burger on a homemade hamburger bun. (See my "bread" section for recipe)
