Have you ever tried PicMonkey? You can do so many fun things with your photos. I am no expert by any means, but I have been playing around with it trying to learn new things to create…..
like today’s burger for instance. The Santa Fe Burgers were first created many months ago when
Mr. J my ex was upset because Red Robin no longer has his beloved burger. I have never personally eaten one, so I went to their website looking to find out what was in it. Then I went into the kitchen and started creating. I have made this burger several times now, several different ways as you can see in this collage…..
Cool right? Okay so I’m not as technologically savvy as the rest of you, but I am pretty impressed with the collage tool! The one on the left is the original that I made many months ago with the jalapeno slices and Pepper Jack cheese. The one in the middle is mine with the cheddar cheese and no veggies. I do not like my hot and cold foods together, yes I am strange that way. The one on the right is Alex’s burger with veggie cheese. What is veggie cheese, let me show you…..
The sauce is the same each time, because I like the way it turned out…so why mess with it! The sauce and the burgers are flavored with canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce…..
You dice them up and put them into the mayonnaise based sauce like so…..
Isn’t that fun? Now let me tell you about the heat with this burger. It is not a hot, spicy, turn your face red kind of heat. It is more of a lingering tingle in the back of your mouth, that lasts until you eat something that makes it go away 🙂 I do not like spicy foods, that is why I do not use Pepper Jack cheese, and I love this burger!
So do you want to know why I always bake my own hamburger buns…..
Don’t you want to just grab one and eat it by itself? Here is the recipe for my super easy bread machine hamburger buns.
I hope you enjoy these burgers as much as we do!
