Frito Pie Burger

Aside from the Alamo and the Lone Star, there might be nothing in this world that’s more Texas than a Frito Pie Hamburger on a Jalapeno Cheddar or a Shiner Bock bun.
And being from Texas, I can make such a claim.
We spied the Frito Pie Burger on a “fancy” burger menu on a trip to Austin once – completely genius.
Since the burger buns keep so well in the freezer, I always just grate a little extra cheese and slice an extra jalapeno so that burger night only involves grilling the burgers – which is only slightly more work than actually having Frito Pie.
