When I was in the cast of Kinky Boots some of us didn’t have a lot to do and would y’all about food constantly. And we were always hot on burgers! This is a tribute to cube movers of Kinky Boots and the beloved burger of our dreams!

Here’s with you will need:

  • 1⁄2 pound of ground beef 1 jalapeño
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes (or more)
  • 1 1⁄4 cup of tomato juice
  • A liberal amount of salt and pepper to taste

Here’s what you will need to do:

  1. Cut 1 jalapeño in any way you’d like
  2. Put said jalapeño in a blender with the the onion powder, red pepper flakes, cayenne pepper, salt & pepper and tomato juice. Frappe!
  3. Pour over the burger and mix it! Get your hands in there!
  4. Put the burger in the pan and cook that beautiful beast!
  5. Serve with a stupid amount of cheese on a gourmet bun and enjoy that amount of happiness! Catch that beautiful butterfly!

I definitely did something wrong but I trust you won’t! Rock it! Drop me a line in social media and let me know how it turned out!

Until next time…
