Turkey Taco Burgers with Green Chile Sour Cream

These burgers were a really nice change to your regular summer burger, and perfect for Taco Tuesday! They're super easy to make with an addition of taco seasoning and a few spices. But the thing that takes them over the top is the green chile sour cream and the guacamole. Top 'em off with your classic lettuce, tomato and onion and you've got yourself a dang good burger and a quick and easy week-night meal. (Recipe and picture adapted from Sweet Treats and More)


  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Dash of McCormick's Hamburger seasoning (optional)
  • 4-6 whole wheat hamburger buns
  • 4-6 slices cheese
  • Lettuce, Sliced Tomato, Sliced Onion, Cheese, Avocado/Guacamole
Green Chile Sour Cream
  • 1/2 cup reduced fat sour cream
  • 3 Tbsp. diced green chiles
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 5-6 drops hot sauce (to taste)
In a medium bowl, mix the ground turkey, taco seasoning and spices together. Form into 4-6 patties and place on a hot grill. Cook until cooked through, flipping once. (You can also cook the burgers in the oven and broil each side for 7-8 minutes until browned and cooked through). Top each patty with a slice of cheese and leave until melted.

For the sauce: mix together all sauce ingredients in a small bowl.

To assemble: spread the green chile sour cream on the buns, then assemble hamburgers with your choice of toppings.
