Turkey and Bean Burrito Burgers

Who doesn't love a juicy burger? You can never go wrong with the old standby of a beef hamburger, but every once in a while I like to change things up a bit.

I saw the original recipe on "30 Minute Meals" and knew I just had to make it. The next time you're in the mood for a burger and Mexican at the same time, you'll have to give this one a try!

Turkey and Bean Burrito Burgers

1 cup prepared white or brown rice
1 lb. ground turkey
1 (15-oz.) can pinto or black beans, rinsed and drained
1 tbsp. chili powder
1-1/2 tsp. cumin
1-1/2 tsp. coriander (or 1 tsp. oregano will work, too)
1 tbsp. grill seasoning, such as Montreal Seasoning from McCormick
1 tbsp. canola oil
2 ripe avocados
1/2 lime, juiced
4 lettuce leaves
1 ripe tomato, sliced
4 MSPI-friendly hamburger buns

Combine rice, meat and beans with spices and grill seasoning. Form four big patties from the meat and bean mixture then heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook patties 7 to 8 minutes on each side.

While burgers cook, mash avocados in a small bowl. Sprinkle with lime juice and add salt to taste.
Place burgers on buns with lettuce and tomato and top with mashed avocado.
