I dislike blogs that typically feature food or DIY or any other topic but suddenly veer off into political rambling/dogma. You read my blog because you want to see what recipe I post next. Despite my dislike for our society’s tendency to politicize of nearly everything, I am going to break from my typical food discussion to highlight something I think is important.

Compassion for all.

Not- Agreement with all. Not- I want to do it all. Not- You are right in all your decisions. Not- I support everything you do.

Rather- Regardless of my disagreement of your choices, I will recognize that you are a person with feelings and who has value. I will disagree with your choice in love and kindness, not blasting my opinion into your life (recognizing that most of the time, you didn’t ask for my opinion in the first place).

Please read this recently Freshly Pressed blog post by evoL= You don’t have to support something. Please just don’t be hateful! It hurts real people and it doesn’t help your cause at all.

And now back to your your regularly scheduled programming…. I promise I won’t digress again in the future. 

Spicy Chipotle Chicken Burgers

  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 chipotle chile in adobo sauce, finely chopped (I would probably increase to 2)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Cheese of your choice
  • Toppings of choice (avocado, arugula, onion, mayo, etc)

Combine the chicken, onion, cilantro, chile, garlic, salt, and pepper.  Form into 4 patties. Grill on medium heat until the chicken is no longer pink and the juices run clear (about 3 to 4 minutes per side). On a bun, top the burger with cheese and your choice of toppings. Enjoy!!!
