Barbecue Frito Chili Pie Burger is one of the best burgers I've ever had! It is a bit over the top but totally one of my all-time favorites! Join me in celebrating #BurgerMonth with Girl Carnivore and 100 other amazing blogs with tons of amazing burger recipes!
Barbecue Frito Chili Pie Burger
Burgers rank right up there at the top for my favorite foods. I could literally eat a burger every day and never get tired of them.
This Barbecue Frito Chili Pie Burger was inspired by an article on the top foods in Arkansas, I think. I read about a Frito chili pie burger somewhere. I put my own spin on it by flavoring up the burger with Dr. Pepper Barbecue Sauce or Jalapeno Barbecue Sauce,EPIC!
If you are a Frito Chili Pie fanatic like I am, you will also love my Fried Frito Chili Pie and if you need a great chili recipe, this classic Chili is thick and hearty and my Quick and Easy Crockpot Chili is always a hit! We also love using leftover chili for Chili Baked Potatoes.
I fell totally in love with this burger, like it's one of the best ever! The grilled burger topped with a simple chili, cheddar cheese, red onion and FRITOS! I'm telling you that you are gonna love it!
When grilling season rolls around we do have burgers quite often. Usually we keep it pretty simple with lettuce, tomato and onions from the garden. I'm pretty sure these Barbecue Frito Chili Pie Burgers will be making an appearance quite often.
My husband is the grilling expert and unless he's stuck in the hayfield, he does the grilling. I love summer grilling for the easy cleanup and not heating up the kitchen!
