The neighbors are coming over this evening for our weekly de-briefing so I'm going to make this a short and sweet post. Thankful for the help in the kitchen and at the grill this evening so I still need to do a few dishes. Don't worry, I'll write a nice rambling post this coming week. Plenty to discuss!
Before I sign off, a little shout out to Sara's Portuguese class at Duke who perused my blog on their projector last week while studying for their final exam. Obrigado!
|my jalepeno-chipotle burger on guacamole, romaine and a toasted bun|
one pound lean ground turkey
1 T olive oil
1/4 C minced sweet onion
1/2 C small diced red pepper
1/4 C chopped jalepeno slices (from the jar) or one fresh jalepeno pepper, seeded and minced
one canned chipotle pepper, minced
1/4 C shredded cheddar or jack cheese
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cumin
Mix all ingredients together with your hands until well combined. Sure it's slimy, but take your rings off and get in there and mix it up with your ingredients. Form into patties (makes 4), cover and chill for at least 30 minutes. Heat grill or grill pan and cook about 4-5 minutes on both sides until done (160 degrees). Serve on toasted buns with guacamole and lettuce if desired.
