    Rita~'s Note:

    These were created by the Exotic Epicureans for Zaar World Tour 03. A team of 9, we each picked one ingredient from 1 region of the US our the Southwest. Making an all American Burger using these ingredients. Kumquat the Cat's friend-lime that brings freshness, JanetC-KY-pepper jack cheese or Queso blanco a creaminess and richness, Alskann-Texas sweet onion made smoky, lucid501-beef just ask any Texan, Anme-corn for sweetness and lightens the burgers, free-free-avocado a rich creaminess, acerast-refried beans for health and to help hold the burger to the chips, Midwest Maven-tortilla chips and myself-chipotle peppers in adobo sauce for heat and smokiness. We stepped out of the box and went for these cute, spicy, smoky, sweet, mini-mini burgers that we placed on tortilla chips adhered with just a tad of refried beans topped with a tad of sour cream, tomato and avocado salsa and chipotle Caramelized onions. Oh as for the burgers they are filled with cheese, corn, chipolte peppers and cumin both give a great smokiness creating this Finger Licking Treats. You can use TVP (Texturized Vegetable Protein (TVP), also known as Textured Soy Protein (TSP) is a meat substitute made from defatted soy flour, a by-product of making soybean oil. It is quick to cook, high in protein, and low in fat.)in place of the beef! To rehydrate, 1 2/3 TVP add 1 1/3 cup boiling water. For the COOKING equivalent of 1 pound of hamburger meat, but equals 89 grams of protein or 12.7 protein blocks. By comparrison: 1 pound of hamburger has: 10.7 blocks in regular ground beef 11.2 block in lean ground beef 12 blocks of protein in extra lean ground beef

      This is really a review of part of this enormous recipe--which I scaled down to miniscule. I loved the carmelized adobo onions--I did make a full batch of those and they are great! Rather than make the salsa (as I making a burger for one) I had a slice of avocado over which I squeezed some lime juice and a slice of tomato with my burger. For the burger itself, I skipped the corn and used just a touch of chipotle, along with the seasonings and some queso blanco. Finally, I skipped the garnishes altogether--made myself a quarter-pounder of a Texotic-Mexotic which I confess to eating with a knife and fork. I am somehat of a burgr purist--don't really like burgers with tons of stuff--but this combo of the burger with avocado, tomato, carmelized adobo onions and some queso blanco is delicious! And even though I didn't do the 20 servings of mini burgers with chips, etc., I think it's a brilliant concept and that you bunch of Exotics more than deserve five stars.

      These were pretty good! I think the suggestion to add a little salt to the salsa is a good one. Maybe my lime was too big, but the salsa was very tart and limey, and could probably have used a little salt to counteract the acid. I used the Tostito Scoops for these, which made a perfect little bite-sized appetizer. My favorite part? The adobo onions. Yum!

      Tried this recipe last night and it was a huge hit!! Super yummy!! Although I love Mexican-inspired flavors, this was my first time using adobo sauce....and I have to say, I didn't know what I was missing. Those onions were pretty much the best part and I can't wait to incorporate them in other dishes. Instead of chips, I sliced some hard rolls into about 1/2 think slices then used a circular cookie cutter close to the size of the hamburgers and did a nice little stack. Definitely try this recipe, you don't be disappointed.
