Cilantro Sriracha Burger

The 4th of July weekend brings with it camping, picnics, get togethers, fireworks and food. Speaking of fireworks, how about a firecracker of a burger……. our Cilantro-Sriracha Burgers.

Tim has a taste for the spicy, and Sriracha is one of his favorites. So, why not a burger with Sriracha???………no reason not too. This creation is all Tim……he told me what he wanted in a burger, and I added it in. Now, I must admit I wasn’t too sure about some of the ingredients, they all are strong flavors, but the result was amazing. The burger was spicy to be sure, not only is there Sriracha, but also jalapeño, cumin, onion, coriander, garlic, and cilantro. Now, the spicy was not that breathing fire, oh my God get me a glass of water spicy, it was more a I can breathe a little better now, tingle to your taste buds!

Sriracha Burger

For condiments, an extra layer of spice with some sriracha mayo. You can adjust the spice in the mayo to your taste. I kept mine to the less spicy side, but for those of you who like it hot…..add all you want!

Top the burger with some cool toppings…….lettuce, tomato, onion, and avocado. The avocado was my addition. Tim is not as big a fan of them as I am, but they lent a cool creaminess that I really liked. But as with any burger, add the condiments you enjoy.

So, the next time a spicy burger is in order try the Cilantro-Sriracha Burgers, its fireworks for your tastebuds!

Fiesta Egg Skillet

Fiesta Egg SkilletFiesta Egg Skillet

It’s Sunday……..Whoo!!! Which means a really great breakfast. Fiesta Egg Skillet is my go to recipe.

I found this recipe years ago in one of those little recipe books that they sell in the checkout lane at the grocery store. I have always been a sucker for those things. I mean after all, when you are standing in line waiting, either you look at those trash rags about celebrities……..I really do not want to see what they look like without makeup, who dumped who or who’s cheating on who……..I always go for the food mags.

I will pick up magazines about any type of food, and one of the first magazines I ever had a subscription to was Bon Appetit. I was on top of the world when I made something from that magazine and it turned out just like the pictures.Well, times have certainly changed, but I still love a good food magazine. The pictures these days almost make you able to taste the food from the pages, and that is our goal also.

I wish I could remember the little grocery store book that I got the recipe for Fiesta Egg Skillet from,so I could give credit where credit is due, but the book is long gone …….as is sometimes my memory………but this recipes has definitely made enough of an impression that I am able to share it with you!
