Frito PIE Burger

Frito PIE Burger
by Willie Simmons

This recipe came to mind for Carrie's Pie Challenge. Ok, it's not really a pie! But PIE is in the name and I bet you'll love it!

2 pounds lean ground beef, make patties (use this method if you like)
Kosher salt
freshly ground pepper
8 sesame seed buns, toasted
cheddar cheese, 8 slices or about 1 cup grated
1 sweet onion, sliced, preferably Texas 10/15, but Hawaiian, Vidalia, or a local sweet onion will do
pickled jalapeno slices, between 4 & 10 per burger, how hot do you like it?
a bag of Fritos
1 can chili, Wolf brand, no beans, heated (I'm a Texan. If you want legitimate Frito Pie, ya gotta use Wolf!)

Heat a skillet over medium heat or fire up the grill. Add a little salt and pepper to each side of your patties. Don't want to over-handle the meat because it affects the tenderness of the burger. Cook your patties til they're like you like em.

While you're frying or grilling your burger to desired doneness, toast your buns.

To assemble, place your bun on a plate and add your burger patty. Add a slice of cheddar cheese, onion slices, jalapeno slices, Fritos, and pour a little (or a lot) of the chili on top. Eat.
