8 Nature's Own Butter Hamburger Buns
1 cup ketchup
1/3 cup light brown sugar
2 canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, minced
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
3 teaspoons lime juice
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
2 medium or 3 small ripe avocados, cut in half and pitted
1/8 teaspoon salt, or to taste
2 packages (16 ounces each) Butterball® Fresh Turkey
Thinly sliced red onions
Spray cold grate of grill with cooking spray. Prepare grill for direct grilling.
Meanwhile, to make barbecue sauce, combine ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar, 2 teaspoons lime juice and garlic powder in a medium saucepan. Heat over medium heat until sauce simmers. Heat 3 minutes. Transfer to a bowl to cool.
To make guacamole, scoop avocado pulp into a medium bowl. Mash with a fork until mixture is slightly chunky. Stir in 1 teaspoon lime juice and about 1/8 teaspoon salt. Cover tightly with plastic wrap. Set aside.
Season turkey patties with salt. Grill 5 to 6 minutes over medium heat. Turn patties and grill 4 minutes.
Reserve about half the barbecue sauce. Brush remaining sauce onto patties. Grill until patties are no longer pink in centers and meat thermometer inserted in centers reaches 165ºF.
Meanwhile, toast insides of buns on grill.
To assemble burgers, place patties on bun bottoms. Top with reserved sauce if desired. Add onion slices and guacamole. Close sandwiches.
