Turkey Burgers With Avocado Cream Sauce

I have been trying to find a turkey burger recipe that the hubby would actually eat, I thought this one might be it, as there were lots of other things in this burger that he loves - peppers, corn, jalapenos. I loved these burgers, he liked them, but he still ended up eating a beefburger! I think I just need to accept that he's never gonna enjoy a turkey burger, no matter what else is in them!

* 1 cup fresh or frozen corn, thawed
* 1/2 cup chopped red onion
* 1 small sweet red pepper, chopped
* 2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced
* 2 teaspoons Olive Oil
* 2 tablespoons lime juice
* 2 garlic cloves, minced
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
* 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
* 1/8 teaspoon dried oregano
* 1 pound extra-lean ground turkey

* 1 medium ripe avocado, peeled
* 1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
* 2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
* 2 teaspoons lime juice
* 1 garlic clove, minced
* 1/8 teaspoon salt

* In a large skillet, saute the corn, onion and peppers in oil until crisp-tender. Stir in the lime juice, garlic, salt, cumin, chili powder and oregano; cook 1 minute longer. Transfer to a large bowl and cool slightly. Crumble turkey over mixture and mix well. Shape into four burgers. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
* For sauce, in a small bowl, mash avocado with the sour cream, cilantro, lime juice, garlic and salt. Refrigerate until serving.
* Grill burgers, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 165° and juices run clear.
