  • 400g minced turkey
  • 1 lime, grated zest
  • Half a small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic finely chopped
  • Half a lime, juiced
  • A handful of freshly chopped coriander
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Half tsp of cumin
  • Half tsp of paprika
  • Chilli flakes (optional)
  • Shredded lettuce
  • Chilli and pepper mexican cheese
  • 4 fajita wraps
  • Sour cream to serve


    1. Place minced turkey in a mixing bowl and add the lime zest, onion, garlic, coriander, cumin, paprika and chilli flakes.
    2. Once mixed thoroughly, add the lime juice and salt and pepper and mix until all the juice has been absorbed. They will be slightly wet but this is ok.
    3. Shape the mixture into 4 patties. You can make them any size you want so the number of patties is subjective.
    4. Heat the oil in a heavy based frying pan on a medium high heat. Once temperature had increased, add the burgers and cook for 5 minutes on each side until cooked all the way through. Place a slice of mexican cheese on top of the burgers whilst they are cooking so the cheese melts over the top.
    5. Heat the fajitas as per pack instruction. To make a pocket for the burgers, fold in half and then half again. Stuff the pocket with lettuce and add the burger when cooked. Serve with sour cream.
