Burger #3 – The Macapeno (and the cooking process)

This thing of beauty and deliciousness will be the third burger on the menu when I get around to opening my own burger joint … someday. Maybe I’ll call it “Macapeno” or something like that. It’s a burger covered in mac-and-cheese and grilled jalapeno peppers, all sitting on top of a chipotle mayo. DELICIOUS!!! This […]
