I didn’t think so.
I don’t know what I can even say about it that isn’t a given…a nice juicy burger, topped with jalapenos, fritos (I used chili cheese fritos!), chili, and shredded cheese. Heaven, I tell ya. Pure heaven.
It’s rainy today in Austin, as I have heard it is throughout most of Texas. The temperatures aren’t quite cold yet, but they are cooler, so what better excuse to get in the kitchen and make this burger?? Even if you aren’t in Texas…you can bring a little bit of Texas to your kitchen with a meal like this.

- Heat a skillet over medium-high heat, and cook patties for 3-5 minutes per side, until your desired doneness. Meanwhile, heat the chili in a small saucepan over medium heat, until very hot.
- Toast your burger buns, if you like. Spread mayo or mustard on the bottom buns, then top with a burger patties.
- Top the burger with jalapeno slices, a small handful of Fritos, chopped white onion, a scoop of chili, and a 1/4 cup of grated cheddar.
- Marvel at the beauty of your creation, and then…devour it!!
