This ain’t my first rodeo when it comes to southwest burgers, so believe me when I tell you that this is the best homemade southwest rodeo burger that I have EVER made and eaten. Dear hubby thinks so too!

Whenever I’m working on a new idea for a recipe or remaking a traditional favorite to a gluten-free version, I experiment with the ingredients and the method for making it at least three to four times. Part of this process is noting every step of the making of it and eating it along the way. Each step spurs me towards the next action undertaken in the whole process of cooking, tasting, and eating.

Always take a good look at what you're about to eat. It's not so important to know what it is, but it's critical to know what it was.

I promise not to spam you. Pinkie swear!

It's kind of like wearing spurs when riding a horse.

The spur needs to be used as an aid to encourage forward and lateral motion of the horse. But as any cowgirl knows, the Spurs cannot just be pretty. They also need to be worn right and used correctly for the horse to respond.

If you have ever been to a rodeo, you know that a rodeo is all about fun.

And, while you can’t always predict what to expect — One thing I learned early on, back in the rodeo-going days of my youth, is that the cowboys always get bigger and better, and the crowds get bigger and louder with every performance.

The same can be said for new recipe trials too. So, based on what I know of rodeos and watching bull riders, I came up with a few loosely similar rules that can be applied to creating new recipes and making sure that I will want to make the recipe again, and again:

  1. “Buckle up!” Translates to: “Mise en Place” Simply put, mise en place is French for “put into place.” Assemble everything you will need and get on it. Some people are under the impression that riding a bull for eight seconds is a piece of cake. Bulls are born to buck and take joy in unseating even the most confident cowboy. Likewise, having recipes turn out consistently happens when cooks spend time (sometimes years) honing their skills and their methods, avoiding a literal ton of potentially frustrating, angry process-flops. A new recipe, its ingredients, and the amounts called for are rarely if ever, perfect out of the gate.
  2. “If you Go on Friday, you’re gonna’ want to come back Saturday.” Translates to: That was good, but what if I tweaked this or tried that?
  3. “If you go Saturday, [you’re] going to want to come back on Sunday.” Translates to: Well, YUM! That was excellent! I want more! And, shouldn’t there be a trophy or silver buckle somewhere in my future?

The BIG Rodeo...

Let’s just say it’s a lot of action-packed bull-riding (tongue-in-cheek) that gets a plain ‘ole burger to the “BEST Burger I’ve Ever Eaten” status.

In the end, it will have gone by fast; you may have injured yourself during the ride, more than likely you experienced many ups and downs, but at the close, you’re going to enjoy it.

But if the anticipation of stepping into the bullpen is too much to mount (pun intended). I invite you to skip all that bronc bustin’ trial and error stuff and sink your teeth into eating the BEST homemade Southwest Rodeo Burgers EVER. Thank goodness that I have done all the eight seconds (LOL) of figuring out how to make it parts for you. Enjoy!

P.S. While the development of this recipe went by fast, there was no actual bull riding that took place in the creation of this recipe. No injuries happened. There were a few ups and downs, and I may have burnt the buns at one point, but you know it was all part of the fun!

P.S.S. If you’ve got a hankerin’ for an easy side dish to serve up with these burgers, mozy on over to my next post for the perfect Classic Creamy Coleslaw to compliment the taste.

Take a peek at the behind GfreeDeliciously

Being creative, cooking, fresh veggies, the violin, decorating for holidays, sewing, hand-quilting, cowgirl boots, country music, fresh herbs in pots, blowing dandelions to the wind, walking barefoot in the grass, hanging out with eclectic interesting people, reading, writing, warm lazy summer days, and yoga!

Gluten, cilantro, mixed vegetables (the frozen kind I grew up with), negativism, rudeness, narcissism, overstaying a welcome,
not helping out, liars, promiscuity, cockiness, know-it-alls, being overly-dramatic, goal-less-ness, poor hygiene, chauvinism, lacking a sense of humor, excessive competitiveness, Laziness, horrifying spellers, people-bashing, criticism and mockery of others and their beliefs, flakiness (because flaky people are really unappealing), more swagger than substance, people who constantly manage others (those folks who think they have all the answers…)

Lambrusco, my iPad, popcorn suppers, dark chocolate, cookbooks, Almond-Rocca, historical romances, sun-bathing, weekend coffee with a good book in bed, PBS cooking shows, romantic comedies, cozy sweaters, fuzzy socks, and fragrant bubble baths with soft music and wine…

Meet Kymberley [Upson] Pekrul

A professional writer and self-taught Gfree lifestyle expert on [most] gluten-free things, I’ve always loved cooking and creating delicious foods from scratch for myself and those I love.

My journey began when everything I thought I knew about cooking and eating suddenly changed one day when I discovered I was celiac. So, I re-learned how to eat, cook, and navigate through life gluten-free – trusting God and His plan for me.

I live in what’s known as the Holylands of Central Wisconsin. All the recipes you’ll find here are gluten-free and inspired by the people and places I love most. Whenever possible, I cook with seasonal ingredients using whole foods – Making dishes suitable for everyday life and all food lovers gathered at the same table.

Gfree cooking, health, and wellness ARE my life. And this little corner of the internet is where I share what I’ve learned – Where my passion IS to nourish everyday GfreeDeliciously!
