Sweet-and-Sour Barbecue Sauce:


Sweet-and-Sour Barbecue Sauce: In small saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; cook onion and garlic, stirring occasionally, until tender and light golden, about 5 minutes.

Stir in strained tomatoes, chipotle pepper, tomato paste, vinegar, sugar and salt; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until thickened, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool slightly. Using immersion blender, purée until smooth; set aside.

Meanwhile, stir together turkey, bread crumbs, egg, chili powder, salt and pepper until combined. Shape into four 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick patties.

Place patties on greased grill over medium-high heat; brush with half of the sauce. Close lid and grill, turning once and brushing with remaining sauce, until instant-read thermometer inserted in centre reads 165°F (74°C), 10 to 12 minutes. Serve with avocado, cucumber, radishes and lettuce in buns.
