We didn’t think anything could be better than burgers or nachos, and then we put nachos on our burger. Best. Idea. Ever.
This is the secret of the Macho Nacho Burger: go big and go bold. It’s the perfect burger for your Father’s Day menu, or any time you’re feeling bold and spicy.
Spicy jalapeños kick this burger’s flavor up a notch, and tortilla chips add the perfect crunch to every bite. But of course the key to nacho greatness is the cheese. Top generously with slices Wisconsin cheddar and swiss cheeses, and you have a burger that deserves the title of Macho Nacho.
