Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 6 minutes
Total Time 16 minutes
Course Main
Cuisine Tex Mex
Method Grill
Servings 8



  • 24 ounces ground turkey
  • 4 teaspoons Mrs. Dash SW Chipotle Seasoning
  • 1 container Wholly Salsa, drained
  • 1 package Wholly Guacamole
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 8 slider rolls, cut in half and buttered


  • Preheat your grill to high. You can make these on a gas, charcoal, tabletop or even a grill pan on your stove.
  • Divide ground turkey into 3-ounce servings. Form into patties slightly larger than your bun. Make a slight indentation in the center of the burger to prevent it from doming up in the center. The indentation will rise as your burger cooks. Sprinkle each patty with about 1/2 teaspoon of the chipotle seasoning. Gently rub seasoning into top, bottom and sides of the meat.
  • Grill until golden brown and slightly charred (about 3 minutes), turning once (cook for 3 minutes on the other side for medium). Try not to press down on your burger with a spatula. It causes the juices to escape and will create a dry burger! Add cheese for the last minute of cooking.
  • Butter buns and place on grill (inside down) for about 1 minute, until they are golden brown with grill marks. Remove buns and prepare with 2-3 tablespoons of guacamole on the bottom bun. Place cheeseburger on top and 2-3 tablespoons of fresh salsa (or pico de gallo) on top.
  • Enjoy!
