Touring the USA (Northwest) – Chipotle Mushroom Burger

Mix 2 lbs. lean ground beef with 3 Tbsp. Sweet Heat Addiction, Smokey Red Sensation or Fresh Cream Indulgence and 1 tsp. salt.  Pat into burgers and grill. 

Mushrooms

  • 1 lb. mushrooms, cleaned and chopped (to roughly the same size).   Do not wash mushrooms, but wipe down with a damp cloth, otherwise they can become soggy.
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced

Heat the oil in a low-sided saucepan or skillet.  Use medium-high heat.  Be careful not to heat the oil too much, or it can ruin the recipe.  Spread the oil around by moving the pan.

Add the minced garlic and saute for 1-2 minutes.  Add the mushrooms and cook until they are hot and have turned a darker brown color.  Move around with a wooden spatula once one side seems done.  This usually takes about 5 minutes.  Do not overcook and use a big enough pan so that the mushrooms are not overcrowded, so that they don’t stew in their own juices.   If you are cooking a lot of mushrooms, cook them in batches instead of one large batch.

Spoon the mushrooms onto the burgers and serve.

Tour the USA (Northwest) – Chipotle Blackberry BBQ Sauce

  • 1 cup BBQ sauce
  • 1/4 cup blackberry jam (preferably seedless)
  • 2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tsp Art of Chipotle, Chipotle Paste (or to taste)

Combine all ingredients and mix well.  This is great on chicken, ribs, beef or any kind of fish.  This is also an excellent dipping sauce.

Note:  When cooking chicken, beef or ribs, start slathering on the sauce about 15 minutes before meat is done.  If you are cooking shrimp or fish that will be done quickly, baste with sauce before placing on grill.  You might want to cover your grill with foil, because this sauce is a bit messy.
