best burger at my house … and I didn’t even make it!!

… ok, ok, MAYBE not numero uno, but def in contention … we’ve (I, I folks, lol) made many a great burger through the years, this ranks right at the top. It’s Whole Foods ultimate burger … they have a gazillion to choose from, and I was being lazy (and running late), so I went old school basic (good quality beef, with 80/20 lean/fat ratio – minimum) and dressed it up myself … cremini mushrooms, jalapeño jack cheese, vidalia onion … w/ my homemade bomber sauce (low-fat mayo, mustard, bbq sauce, horseradish) … check out the pics, y’all!

look at the amount of fat …

… steaks!! Skirt steak y’all!! It’s the quintessential cut of meat for many Tex-Mex style types of food. I’m talking eating with your hands food … tightly wrapped in a fajita while you fight a losing battle trying to eat it without it bursting, or any juices dripping down your chin … good luck!! These bad boys (surprisingly, finding these ain’t as easy as you’d think, but as always is the case … perseverance pays off) came courtesy (not implying they were free … I paid, lol) my local Whole Foods Market. And the beauty is once you grill the steaks, there aren’t any rules … make the fajitas as you wish, use anything/whatever tickles your palate. Today, went with my grilled poblano and sweet onion relish, shredded Queso panela, a bit of lettuce, and a dollop (or 2) of sour cream (fat-free) smeared on the shell. Wrap ‘n tuck the sucker and have at ‘er … served with my black bean, peaches & cream corn, tomato, jalapeño salad … well, life ain’t too bad!! 😉

tortillas, fajitas … tomato, tomahto … AND straight from Mexico, how authentic is that? …

even more authenticity …

my fave: poblano & onion relish …

beans ‘n corn salad …

flames and smoke … my little bit of hardwood charcoal heaven …

took the pic, grabbed my plate and bbq tongs  … we’re done folks …

2 steaks – 1 mouth …joshing Tiffany K … JUST joshing, lol …

and finally … voilà …
