  • Well, I just call this "the trailer trash". What a sandwich! Vegetarian chorizo sausage from Trader Joe's, a Boca veggie burger, sautéed red onion, shredded cheddar cheese, sliced cherry tomatoes and banana peppers - all piled high between two pieces of toasted white bred. On the sides...organic stoneground blue corn tortilla chips covered with chorizo, cheddar cheese and Mrs. Noise's mango pineapple Sexy Sauce. Yes, I am eating vegetarian "high society" style. It just looks like the ghetto. :-)
