  • Burgers:
  • Add turkey, cilantro, scallion, garlic, ancho powder, salt, pepper, cumin, coriander and cinnamon to a mixing bowl and gently knead. Form 4 patties about 3/4 inch thick and put on a saran wraped plate.
  • Light your grill and when it is heated brush grate with oil. Grill the burgers for 13 minutes, turning once, for medium. Briefly warm the english muffins and place a burger on the bottom slice; top with the avocado, pumpkin seeds and a helping of Chipotle Salsa.
