Preparation 10 minutes
cooking 25 minutes
280 calories per serving

1/2 onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tbsp canola oil
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
260 g ground chicken or turkey
ground pepper to taste
2 t bsp tomato paste
1/4 cup ketchup
1/2 tsp brown sugar
2 tbsp water
4 drops Tabasco sauce (optional)
2 hamburger buns

Prepare the vegetables.

Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat.  Add the onion then cook until it is translucent, about 3 minutes with occasional stirring, paying attention not to let it burn.  Add salt, then reduce the heat, cover and cook until the onion is soft, about 5 minutes.  Add the garlic and cayenne pepper then cook with stirring until fragrant, 1 minute.

Add the chicken then cook, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon, until it loses its pink colour, about 5 minutes.  It is important not to overcook the meat at this point, otherwise it will end up dry and crumbly.

Season with ground pepper to taste, then add the tomato paste, ketchup, brown sugar, and water.  A few drops of Tabasco sauce may be added for extra spiciness.  Cover, then simmer 10 minutes.

Adjust the seasoning.  Soon the chicken mixture onto hamburger buns and serve.

Serve with lettuce salad with cucumbers and radishes, tomato and cucumber salsa, tomato salad with oregano, or fennel salad.
