An incandescent bulb glinted off the staid objects below. The neighbor’s car and topiary radiated gold against a tapestry of darkness. We dined on chipotle, bacon, and chili cheese burgers. Matters are as matters are and we supped in silence.
3 oz bacon
¼ C chipotle pepper, soaked to soften and diced
½ C small cubes of cheese
1 T chili powder
½ t garlic salt
1 lb ground beef
- Mix Non-beef ingredients.
- Fold in the beef. Mix well and form into 5 patties.
- Grill on a charcoal fire.
An amalgam of disparate parts, the burgers sizzled sharply over hot flame. One the palate, no one flavor commanded central attention. Cheese, bacon, and chili synchronized in beef patty harmony. While surprisingly understated, the burgers actualized contentment.
