Ingredients:

1 lb lean grass fed beef

1 lb ground turkey breast

2/3 c fresh salsa or pico de gallo, drain

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper

for guacamole:

1 small avocado, peeled, pitted, and roughly chopped

1/4 red bell pepper, finely chopped

1 T cilantro, chopped

1 tsp lime juice

1/4 tsp garlic powder

salt and pepper

optional: Greek yogurt spread on each bun (kinda like sour cream)

Instructions:

Combine beef, salsa, salt, and pepper. Shape into 1/2 inch thick patties (don;t work them too much as they will get tougher).

Grill away.

In the meantime, prepare guac by smashing avocado and combining the above ingredients. Another simple way to make guac is to just combine the avocado with salsa and a squirt of lime juice.

Enjoy!
