Mexican Turkey Burgers

I thought these burgers were yummy! However none of my kids were excited about them. Grayson was the only one who got over the looks of them and tried them, and he hated to admit it, but he liked them too.

20 ounce extra-lean ground turkey breast
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1/4 cup diced red onion
1/4 diced red bell pepper
1/3 cup diced fresh mushrooms
1 tablespoon Mexican or fajita seasoning
1/4 cup low-fat Mexican blend cheese
1 teaspoon minced garlic
6 buns or sandwich thins
6 tablespoons salsa
1 1/2 medium avocados, peeled, pitted, and thinly sliced
6 tablespoons fat-free Greek style yogurt

In a large mixing bowl, combine the turkey, cilantro, onion, bell pepper, mushrooms, seasoning, cheese and garlic. Divide into 6 patties.

Grill the burgers for 3 minutes on each side, or until the inside is no longer pink. Serve on whole grain buns or sandwich thins topped with salsa, avocado, and yogurt.
