Menu: Chipotle-stuffed turkey burgers * sweet potato oven fries with chipotle ketchup * sauteed spinach

Burgers
Ground turkey
Sea salt
Garlic
Chipotle peppers in adobo

Mix pack of ground turkey with sea salt and garlic. Shape into patties; cut in half horizontally and place a small chipotle in the center. Grill until done. During last few minutes. add reduced-fat Mexican cheese on top to melt.

Fries:
Cook sweet potato oven fries according to package (I used Alexia frozen ones; 425 for 20 minutes).

Chipotle ketchup:
Chop two chipotle peppers in small bowl; add some of adobe sauce. Mix with tomato ketchup to taste; add 2 tsp balsamic vinegar.

Spinach:
Heat 2 T olive oil in large non-stick skillet/wok, on high. Add baby spinach; saute until wilted. Grind sea salt and garlic over.

Would I make it again?
Not quite the same way. The chipotle was too hot, though M liked it a lot. I might stuff cheese with the chipotle. I might just use the chipotle ketchup and leave out the pepper entirely. I’d also wanted to make a jicama-Granny Smith slaw or other salad, but ran out of time and energy. Big afternoon at work, pretty tired. So glad to sleep in in the morning.
