It has been said that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. That is certainly the case with this burger that was dreamed up by the Mixin Vixen's during ZWTIII. This is a Texas Man size burger that is sure to please. It makes a fantastic starlight meal on the trail for 2 accompanied with home fries and cowboy beans. Enjoy because we sure had fun developing it!

I had this burger for lunch today!! This is definitely not for the faint of heart like Pan Nam said, a little tooo spicey for me, and I cut back on ancho chile powder and didn't use the jalapeno relish. I loved the added potatoes and onion to the burger. I couldn't really taste the bbq sauce. I used regular mustard and loved the garlic toasted buns. Great burger!!!!
This burger was GREAT! My DH and I are both stuffed to the gills. We added some red bell pepper to the mushrooms and I also sauteed them inside in butter. We had no sogginess in the burgers at all. The chili powder was an awesome touch! All we hadf was sliced jalapenos, and I thought they worked very well. Definitely going to be making this again.
