  1. For the sweet potato fries, preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Wash and dry the potatoes
  3. With the skin on, slice into 1/2-inch-thick rounds; cut the rounds into 1/2-inch-thick finger-shaped pieces.
  4. Toss the potatoes in a bowl with the oil, chili powder, garlic powder and salt.
  5. On a baking sheet, spread the sweet potato fries in a single layer and roast, stirring every 10 minutes, until brown and tender, 30 to 35 minutes.
  6. Remove from the oven, transfer to a platter or bowl and sprinkle with a little more salt.
  7. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, mix the lean ground turkey with the diced chiles and season with salt and pepper.
  8. Shape into patties and refrigerate until ready to cook.
  9. Heat a large grill pan or nonstick skillet on medium heat and spritz with canola oil.
  10. Add the turkey patties to the grill pan and cook until browned on one side, about 4 minutes.
  11. Flip, reduce the heat to low, cover (if using a skillet) and cook until the juices run pale pink, about 4 more minutes.
  12. Top with the reduced-fat pepper-jack cheese during the last minute.
  13. Toast the rolls in the oven or in a toaster oven. Alternatively, grill them 1 minute on each side.
  14. To assemble: On a platter, place the fries and a burger on a bun and top with lettuce, tomato, onion and avocado slices. Squeeze lime juice over the fries and serve.
