Directions

For the salsa: In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients and stir them together. Cover the container and chill the salsa until ready to use.

For the burgers: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. In a large bowl, combine the turkey, beans, tortilla chips, House Seasoning, chile powder, and cumin. Use your hands to form the mixture into 8 equal sized patties, working in batches if necessary. Cook the patties until no longer pink in the middle, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake for 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer the patties to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.

To serve: Spoon the Corny Salsa mixture over the burgers. Top with avocado slices and sour cream.

The Lady and Sons House Seasoning:

Combine all the ingredients. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 6 months.
