Tonight was one of those nights I just had to work with what I had. What I had was the need to think outside the bun. Seems like I have an inexhaustible supply of Mexican ingredients as well as a hamburger paddy. So here we go. Thought I'd marinate the ground chuck paddy with light olive oil, aged balsamic, and worsester sauce:

Image

Out to the pit we go, where I cooked it indirect under the influence of mesquite

Image

Dusted it with good ol' Chef Merito's carne asada seasoning (You already know how much I wuvs that stuff).

Image

I could have eaten it right here as it is:

Image

But I had bigger (much bigger) plans in mind. While the paddy was smokin', I broke out the extra grande size tortillas and began building. First, some chopped salad, onions, and red jalapenos.

Image

Then salsa, queso fresco, and crema mexicana

Image

Lastly the paddy:

Image

I wrapped it all up first in one tortilla, then inverted and wrapped again with another tortilla. Here is a cross sectional view. Sorry about the pics-- Appears like I somehow smeared my lens. My taste buds went wild over the flavors of this burger. :D

Edit Note:

Since Sroach and I are in solidarity about the desirability of a D.o.d.g.e. (Drips oil, drops grease everywhere) burger, I hereby officially declare this one the "I made it for Sroach burger," or alternatively the official "Sroach Dodge Deluxe Burger."

A most impressive collection of flavors! But my favorite part is how the marinade makes it look like you're grilling a brain - next time serve it with some fava beans and a nice chianti. :twisted:

Incidentally, lens cleaning tissue is getting harder to find. Granted, a package of 50 sheets can last a long time (my last purchase was probably over 20 years ago) but I was surprised that when I went to buy some more not too long ago I had to settle for a lens cloth instead. At least I can still mail-order it from B&H...

:lol: You're right, Brad-- that does look like a brain! Honestlly and no kidding, I did enjoy a nice chianti with that meal! But I guess Anthony Hopkins would not be satisfied without the fava beans... slirp.

I've gotten some really good deals at B&H, including computer parts. Thanks for the tip. :D

I was thinking the same thing about the brains. Looks tasty. Seems like you've been on a bit of a wrap kick lately. I wouldn't worry about the smeared lens thing. It seems to happen around delicious food. :wink:

Yes - it looks delicious indeed!

One of the ways I found to really combat smeared lenses was to buy a UV filter for my lenses. That way, at least I'm cleaning a smeared filter, not a smeared lens.
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.

Thanks Griff and CBG :D

Griffin-- I hear ya... What happens around here is that the food I have determines what I cook. And the grocery stores determine what I buy. Whatever they got good on sale, I get for the most part. Then I think of it as my chemistry play lab. :lol:

CBG-- That is a brilliant idea about the UV filter!

Thank you most kindly, Sroach!

If only I were more brave, I could go for some pink, too. I can say at least that the burger was still juicy and tender. It was true D.o.d.g.e. style-- Drips oil, drops grease everywhere. :lol:
