Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s is introducing a new Thickburger that draws inspiration from the southwest. You guessed it, Tex-Mex cuisine.
The Tex Mex Bacon Thickburger boasts a charbroiled Black Angus Beef patty that’s stacked with fire-roasted poblano peppers, onions, lettuce, tomatoes and thick-cut Applewood-smoked bacon. It features a spicy Santa Fe sauce and pepper-jack cheese.
Patrons can order the Thickburger with a 1/3 pound patty for $5.79 or a 1/2 pound patty for $6.99.
Carl’s and Hardee’s are also gearing up to launch a commercial for the burger featuring Texan Elle Evans of Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines video and Latina cover model Alejandra Guilmant from Mexico City.
