We have so much to be thankful for as we celebrate three years together tonight. I love David and our family more every day.
I was weirdly specific with David about what I wanted for dinner tonight. Well, not even fordinner. I knew how I wanted the restaurant where we ate to feel, so I described that and he found it. What a guy.
If there was ever something I have shared on this place that could be looked down upon as low brow, this might be it. I post it unashamedly nonetheless! When we are honest, we really like the low brow food sometimes. Even a sandwich as crass as a taco and a burger made into one flavor explosion.
Remove pit and stem from red pepper. Place in food processor and pulse for 15 seconds. Stir pureed red pepper, egg white, and taco seasoning into ground chicken. Form into patties and grill on each side until no pink remains. Top burgers with guacamole, salsa, jalapeños, and tortilla chips. Serve on buns.
Chili is one frequently occurring weeknight dinner in our house. I also go for it a lot when cooking for gluten free friends. My recent way of livening things up in the chili pot – adding the rich, nutty flavor of hummus!
In the base of a stockpot, begin to brown turkey. Add onion, red pepper, garlic, chili powder, and cumin and continue to cook until meat is browned. Add black beans, tomatoes, chipotle pepper, adobo sauce, oregano, 1 cup water, hummus, and salt & pepper.
Cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Stir in corn. Serve with jalapeño and tortilla chips.
