tex-mex turkey burgers... 20 minutes

the goods:

1 pound ground turkey (93% lean)
2 teaspoons chili powder
4 ounces pepper jack cheese, thinly sliced
country bread, sliced
1 avocado, halved, pitted, peeled, and thinly sliced

Form turkey into patties,using your thumb, make an indentation in the center to prevent burgers from rounding on top.

Season patties with a sprinkling of chili powder and salt and pepper.

Grill patties, covered, 4 to 5 minutes per side.

While burgers are grilling, prep toppings.

Top burgers with cheese. Cover and continue to grill until cheese has melted, 2 to 3 minutes more.

Grill bread until lightly toasted and slightly charred.

Place each burger on a slice of bread (cut bread slices in half if necessary).
Top with avocado slices, salsa, and another slice of bread.
