Tasty Tuesday: Fajita Turkey Burgers


Okay, so this recipe doesn't have to be made with turkey... but I've had a recent fascination with ground turkey since it's a little better for you than ground beef and I can buy it in bulk at Costco!
I pretty much replace ground beef with ground turkey in most of my recipes now and hardly even taste a difference!
Fajitas are one of our favorite meals and we LOVED having that same taste on a burger!
Hunter made himself sick he ate so many of these, ha!
It was super easy and super yummy, I call that a win, win!



Ingredients:
-A pound or more of ground turkey (or ground beef... whatever floats your boat)
-1 foil packet of fajita seasoning
-1 tbsp + a few dashes of garlic salt 
-1 tsp + 1/2 tsp chili powder 
-a few dashes salt and pepper 
-cooking spray
-3 tbsp oil of choice 
-2 bell peppers (I chose one red and one orange)
-1/3 of a yellow onion 
-2 tbsp soy sauce 
-a slice of pepper jack or Monterey jack for each burger 
-Hamburger buns
-2 avocados
-1/4 cup sour cream
-a few spoonfuls or your fav salsa

Directions:
-Place uncooked ground turkey or ground beef in a mixing bowl. Add half a packet of fajita seasoning, 1 tbsp garlic salt, 1 tsp chili powder, and a few dashes salt and pepper. Once mixed completely, form meat into burgers and cook in a pan with some cooking spray or on the grill!
-While burgers are cooking, start cutting your bell pepper and onion into strips. Add that to a frying pan with oil and let cook until veggies become soft but not soggy.
-Turn heat to low and add in the remainder of fajita seasoning, 1/2 tsp chili powder, soy sauce, and a few dashes salt & pepper. Let that cook for a couple more minutes.
-When burgers are almost done add slices of pepper jack or Monterey jack cheese and let it melt down.
-Make your guacamole by adding the meat of two avocados to a mixing bowl with sour cream and a few dashes garlic salt. If you wanna get fancy, skip the sour cream and use fresh pico and lime juice. 
-Toast your bun. The add a spoonful of your fav salsa to the bottom bun. Place burger on to of that. Add peppers and onion on top of the burger. On the top bun add a heaping spoonful of guac.


And there ya have it, the fjaita burger!
Now I'm craving one...
I hope you all liked this recipe!

All my love,
Aleigh Joy
