Jennie-O Jalapeno Turkey Burger & Wholly Guacamole Giveaway

       Wholly Guacamole has teamed up with Jennie-O to create a flavor explosion in your mouth!  I made the switch from ground beef to ground turkey several years ago because its leaner, has less saturated fat, and contains more calcium.  The family didn't even notice a difference in taste when I used ground turkey to make tacos or other meals.  I've often seen turkey burgers at the store but was apprehensive about how my family would receive them. When the opportunity to review Jennie-O's Jalapeno Jack Turkey Burgers became available I was EXCITED!! Available in Walmart stores only through March and then launching nationwide in April!
                Jennie-O Jalapeno Jack Burgers come in a 2 pound box and include 6 individually wrapped 1/3 pound burgers. Perfect if you just want to make one burger for a quick and healthy meal.  If there is one thing I could change about these burgers, it would be to have 8 burgers per box. Buns come in an 8-pack so should burgers in my opinion! No uneven numbers, no wasted buns! Silly I know... but with my OCD I prefer everything to be even!

         My husband cooked our Jennie-O Jalapeno Jack Turkey Burgers on the grill.  Slathered the burger with  Wholly Guacamole, tomato and lettuce! The texture of the burger was dense and moist.  Perfectly seasoned with a touch of heat from the jalapeno. The heat isn't over powering and my 6 & 7 year old kids requested another burger because they loved them so much.  These are the same kids who turn their nose up to everything because its to spicy! I didn't ask questions though and just served them another!   I really enjoyed the little random pockets of Monterrey jack cheese throughout the burger.  The creamy cheese mixed with the guacamole and kick from the jalapeno made eating this burger a fiesta!
This is another great Jennie-O & Wholly Guacamole recipe!
