Red River Rivalry

 It's a wonderful coincidence that UT and Autumn colors go hand in hand!

Chipotle Sweet Potato Fries
Fresh Fruit
Potato Salad
Hummus and Pita Wedges

We've found that good old ground chuck makes the best burger. Just toss in a little kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper, combine, and form patties. Be careful not to overwork the meat. Just lightly pat it into shape. 

For a great burger topping combo, I look to Shoal Creek Saloon for inspiration. Their Reynaldo Burger is topped with grilled jalapenos and onions and cheese of your choice. (I go with American for this one.) Hot off the grill and spicy, it's an amazing burger!

Chipotle Sweet Potato Fries
3 lbs sweet potatoes, washed, cut into 1/2 inch wedges
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp chipotle powder (or chile powder)
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 375. Toss potato wedges in oil and spices. Spread out on foil covered baking sheet in a single layer. Bake 25-35 minutes or until lightly browned and crispy.
