The Backbone of the Mexican Chipotle Sausage

The spicy Field Roast sausages sizzled on the stove ready to be devoured in an authentic Mexican meal with a hint of American culture. After being such an enthusiastic fan of the Mexican Chipotle sausage - the realization occurred that I could enhance the experience by bringing more of its Mexican roots back on to the plate.

But what does that necessarily mean?

To me, and to a lot of people familiar or raised in the Hispanic culture, it means incorporating the staples found on a legitimate burrito truck. The spicy chipotle brought forth the exquisite combination of the sour cream, guacamole, and pico de gallo all inside an organic Rudy's hotdog bun! Our taste buds were in full delight as we ate this healthy lunch.

Once I had the idea, I spoke with my co-workers Petra and Marta about making authentic guacamole and pico de gallo to put on this delicacy! Right off the bat, they were excited about co-creating this dish since we all shared the same passion for Mexican food. After a little planning and shopping at our nearby PCC (Puget Sound Consumers Cooperative), we sliced and diced organic tomatoes, cilantro, onions, jalapenos and avocados an hour before the lunch was to be served. Our timing was perfect; fresh pico de gallo, fresh guacamole, on top of some Mexican Chipotle sausages freshly cooked that morning!

By the time we were all sitting down and enjoying our meal, compliments could be heard all across the table. Between the silence of chewing and the vivid expressions of appreciation, I know without a doubt that this is a lunch menu not to be passed over! Especially for those who crave authentic Mexican food! To end it on a sweet note, we had a delicious fruit salad made that morning! Between intuition and innovation, Field Roast will always be there for the healthy minded people - to continue cultural traditions without continuing the cruelty that some species endure!
