  1. First you want to gather your ingredients and spices.
  2. Pre wash and dry your lettuce and tomato.
  3. Next peel an avocado or two, add them into a bowl. Next add mayonnaise (my favorite is Best Foods) and finely chopped garlic at least one per avocado. Add mayo, salt pepper. Smash, mix and set to side.
  4. In a mixing bowl add ground turkey and green salsa. Mix and shape hamburger patties.
  5. Cook 4-5 minutes each side in a medium-high heated non stick skillet.
  6. Add cheese to each burger. Add lid to skillet and melt cheese. Take off heat and place onto toasted buns.
