Cut up some garlic, red onion, and bell pepper into desired sizes. For a spicier burger, consider adding a chopped jalapeno as well.
In a bowl, season the ground turkey using fresh thyme, cilantro, cumin, salt, pepper, and a few drizzles of hot sauce for some extra kick.
Add the turkey to the garlic and veggie mixture and stir until the ingredients are fully blended. Then, form the hamburger patties and place in the freezer for a few minutes to allow them to set properly.
Oil a cooking pan, and cook the burgers on high heat for about six minutes on each side, or until doneness has been achieved.
Place the burgers on a bun and add toppings such as avocado, bacon, lettuce, tomato, or even a spicy southwestern aioli for additional flavor.
