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

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
