I was feeling spicy last night.  And spicy I was.  My dinner, I mean.

Jalapeno Bacon Burgers with Chipotle Mayonnaise

2 lbs ground beef (I used a mixture of 40% venison & 60% pork)
2 finely chopped jalapeno peppers – pith and seeds removed
OPTIONAL:  2 oz cubed cheddar cheese (although that would be primal, not paleo)
1/2 tsp smoked sea salt
1/2 tsp cracked black pepper
1/2 tsp dried minced garlic
Avocado, sliced thin
8 slices of bacon, precooked (I cook mine on a broiler pan in the oven at 400 degrees for 20 minutes for really even cooking)
Chipotle Mayonnaise
1/2 cup Grapeseed Oil Veganaise
1 Tbsp Chipotle Tabasco
Mix ground beef and jalapeno peppers by hand in a large bowl and form into 4-6 patties.  We like big burgers so I did 4.  Then, in a small dish, mix salt, pepper and garlic and sprinkle onto the burgers.  Grill until desired done-ness is attained.  Place sliced avocado and bacon on top, and top with Chipotle Mayonnaise by mixing the Vegenaise and Tabasco together.

Chili Honey Lime Slaw

2 12 oz bags broccoli slaw
1 1/2 cups Vegenaise
juice of 1 lime
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1/2 jalapeno, finely diced
1 tsp chili powder
2 Tbsp raw honey
Salt and pepper to taste
Place broccoli slaw in a large bowl.  In a smaller bowl, whisk together Vegenaise, lime juice, cilantro, jalapeno, chili powder, honey and salt and pepper until well combined.  Pour Veganaise mixture over slaw and combine well.

This dinner made our eyes water and our noses sniffle.  It was so good.  I’m having it again for lunch today!
