Guacamole & Spicy Pico Salsa Turkey Burgers {and Giveaway}

I could make a meal out of chips and salsa.  If I was stranded on a desert island, all I would need to survive would be chips and salsa.  So, you could imagine my delight when Wholly Guacamole sent me a cooler full of their new salsa to try.

But, I have to admit. I’m a bit of a salsa snob. It has to be fresh tasting and made with real ingredients, like you picked the tomatoes from your garden and made it in your kitchen that morning.  It can’t have fake veggies or a nasty preservative aftertaste.  If you are buying salsa from a jar stored on a shelf in an aisle instead of the produce or deli section of your supermarket, you are missing out on real deal.

Now that you know to where to find real salsa, you need to try Wholly Guacamole’s new line of salsa products, Wholly Salsa.  Each of their new salsa products met my criteria: tastes fresh and made with real, wholesome ingredients.   And since it’s made with real wholesome ingredients, you will want to add it to your ingredients, like this turkey burger recipe I created just for Wholly Guacamole.

Guacamole & Spicy Pico Salsa Turkey Burgers


1 lb lean ground turkey

10 oz Wholly Salsa Classic Mild, strained

½ tsp thyme

1 tsp coriander

1 tsp cumin

¼ tsp turmeric

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp onion powder

¼ tsp crushed red pepper flakes

½ tsp salt

1 tsp ground black pepper

Wholly Salsa Guacamole & Spicy Pico for topping


Add ground turkey, strained salsa and spices all into one large bowl and mix thoroughly.  Divide the meat mixture into four equal patties to make quarter pound burgers.  Brush each patty lightly with a thin coat of canola oil to prevent patties sticking to grill.  Grill burgers about 4 minutes each side or an internal temperature of 165°.

Serve burgers on fresh baked rolls and top each with Wholly Salsa Guacamole & Spicy Pico.

This recipe was created for the FOOD.FUN.HOP giveaway event hosted by Shy Babies & Little Inspiration.  As part of this Wholly Salsa campaign, Wholly Guacamole wants to offer one of  Run DMT’s readers a cooler full salsa, just like the one I received.
