Santa Fe Chorizo (or with spicy turkey sausage) Turkey Burgers

Posted Dec 14 2012 1:46am

I posted this recipe in my feature "Widescreen" article "Remembering Route 66, my cross country drive" , and I wanted to post as a separate recipe.

As I say continuously with recipes that involve bread and meat, I am trying to think "out of the box" pertaining to the  "gain-free" and "gluten-free" movements, by utilizing papaya enzymes to digest grains and meat.

I don't eat a heck of a lot or grains or animal protein (except plentiful salmon and pasture raised eggs almost everyday), but I can't see myself giving quality burgers and sandwiches up, nor do I feel the need to, as long as they are the highest quality ingredients.

Santa Fe Chorizo (or spicy turkey sausage) Burger

To Prepare the Burger:
* 1 Pound pasture raised turkey (or grass fed beef or bison, I avoid conventional beef)

* 1 Pound Fresh Chorizo casing removed, although I replace the Chorizo sausage with Spicy Turkey Sausage, Whole Foods has an incredible assortment

* 2 Tbsp organic Minced Garlic
* Handful organic chopped parsley
* Pink Himalayan Salt & Organic Pepper to Taste

Directions: Mix together, do not over-handle meat. Make into 4-6 patties. Grill over medium-high until chorizo or turkey sausages cooked through.

Optional Sauce

* 1/2 Cup Organic Mayonnaise (avoid mayo with Canola!!), I replace mayo with Dijon Mustard mixed with honey
* 1/4 Cup Fresh Cilantro chopped
* 2 Tbsp Green Diced Chile
* Juice of 1 Organic Lime
* Himalayan Salt to Taste

You may not need the sauce, just including it from original recipe, although you can still add any or all of these ingredients as additional toppings


* 2 Organic Avocados sliced
* 4-6 slices organic Monterey Jack Cheese, I prefer grass fed cheese
* 2 organic Red Peppers roasted, peeled and sliced
* 4-6 Burger Buns, I like
Sami's Millet and Flax Buns toasted
