This week my famous Chili Burger Recipe was featured in Rachel Ray’s Burger Bash Competition, which was taped on My 30th birthday! (aired on 2/23/16). Check out more recipes and more features from the show here.

Me and two other viewers had the wonderful opportunity to compete in the Burger Bash for a chance to win a trip to the South Beach Wine & Food Festival. ‘The Chew’s’ Carla Hall judge the competition.

See me and the other two contestant share our secrets and showcase our delicious burgers!

And in case you want to know… check out who won the Burger Bash here………….. (hint, hint it wasn’t me)

While all the Burgers were amazing, I still think my second place Chili Burger was absolutely the best (yes I’m bias) and practically speaking, it’s a delicious burger that even novice cooks can make. The combination of flavors from the ground cumin, chili powder, as well as the combination of proteins (sweet & spicy Italian Sausage, ground beef and black beans) really makes this burger unique, flavorful and perfect for those who enjoy a little “sweet heat” in their burgers.  Notably, the patty is the star. There’s no fancy toppings in this recipes, it’s just a really good burger, served with a deliciously toasted Ciabatta bun, topped with some delicious Pepper jack cheese.

Check out the recipe here & enjoy!
