A 1 lb hunk of unthawed burger has kept me away from a few short notice meals, but frozen patties cook up just fine, and grill even better.

Chipotle Cream Sauce for Chicken
3/4 cup milk
3 canned chipotles or 3 dried chipotles*
2-3 garlic cloves, or to taste
1/2-1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
1/4 cup sour cream
1/2 cup cream

Combine milk, chipotles, garlic, cumin, onion powder and salt in blender and puree until smooth. In large skillet melt butter, add the flour and blend until lump-free. Add sour cream and cream, whisk until well blended. Stir in the chipotle puree, stir mixture until it thickens. Remove from heat and pour over sautèed chicken. You can top with cheese and put in oven until it melts.
*When I use dried chipotles I heat the milk and let the seeded chipotles steep for about an hour, cool and then put in blender.
Oh yummy!!!! Thanks so much for sharing!

My oldest had a great idea!
He loves swimp UB.... :)
He asked if he could have a side of shrimp with his corn chowder...

He gets a side and I get shrimp chowder!
the other 2 get plain corn chowder.

sounds like some yummy stuff goin' on. We had a late burger lunch with chili-cheese fries.

I might make some mac & cheese or we may just heat up a noodle bowl from the pantry.

mmmm, mashed potatoes... very nice. I almost went that route, but stuck with the fries. As you can see, I've had a thing going with broccoli That stuff just may have moved into my #1 green veggie.
