Texas Tailgate Burger


In Texas we take football and tailgating PRETTY seriously. I developed this burger at the start of college football season a couple years ago as a way to combine some tailgate favorites: burgers, barbecue, and chips. You will need either a cold beer or a Texas tea to wash this bad boy down!

What you will need

2 pounds ground chuck

1 cup pickled jalapeños, chopped

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon chili powder

1 1/2 cups barbecue sauce (either use your favorite, or use my recipe at the end of instructions)

2 cups shredded smoked sharp cheddar cheese

1/2 cup diced sweet onion (I use Texas 1015, naturally)

6 onion hamburger buns

barbecue-flavored potato chips (kettle style is best)

sliced dill pickles

Chopped iceberg lettuce (we are going for crunch, not vitamins, here!)
