chili cheese tot burger

A couple months back I asked my readers to let me know if they wanted to see a burger or hot dog week.  One week dedicated to the love of either delicious food.  Burgers pulled out the win.  However, my friends over at NoshOn.It beat me to the punch with dedicating a week of burger love of their own.  I signed up immediately knowing that this would be a great week to show some meaty love.

After deliberating over several recipes I finally decided on this chili cheese tot burger.  I have some fond memories of getting some chili cheese tot or fries at sonic when growing up.  To be completely honest I would probably replace a meal with that combo today.  You just can’t go wrong with chili, cheese and potatoes.

My parents were in town and I told them that I would be cooking dinner for them.  I wasn’t sure about the whole chili cheese with tots on the burgers would suit them.  So being the good daughter I told them that they could leave it off and just eat a simple burger.  They decided to splurge and treat themselves to this delicious and satisfying burger.
