Fire Roasted Pepper Burgers

Fire Roasted Pepper Burgers | Plaid and PaleoI hope everyone had an amazing 4th of July! I’m sad to leave Florida today. I’ve been enjoying the ocean breeze, salt water and sand. I truly miss living by the beach. When I was little I dreamed about living near the beach, but never actually thought it would happen. Now that I’m back in the Midwest, I still can’t believe I lived by the beach in Los Angeles. I lived my dream. 

So this recipe should really be called “using up all my ingredients in my fridge.” I went to the grocery store with a recipe in mind and left empty handed. When I got back home, I examined the contents of my fridge again and realized I could make a pretty tasty burger. I always keep a couple pounds of grass-fed beef in my freezer for emergencies. It is so handy. Ground beef is very versatile and a less expensive cut to buy grass-fed! These fire roasted pepper burgers combine the flavors of three peppers to give a spicy kick complimented with a fire roasted pepper sauce made milder with a few fresh tomatillos.
