On a recent trip to San Francisco, Foodbeast’s own Elie Ayrouth spotted the latest burger behemoth (below) from Jack in the Box. Not-so-subtly named after Northern California’s signature lexicon, the Hella-peño burger packs, ahem, hella chopped jalapeños, three fried jalapeño poppers, an ungodly amount of melted cheese, and taco sauce.
As you can see from the above photo snapped by Instagram user @juangalt (who appropriately hashtagged #shame), the chain did not skimp on the hot peppers.
Unsurprisingly, the burger is part of Jack’s Munchie Menu, which launched back in September. The late night menu includes similar stoner dreams such as the cheeseburger topped with a grilled cheese sandwich, a mozzarella-stuffed chicken sandwich and loaded nuggets squirted with ranch and cheese. At the moment, the limited-time item seems to only be testing in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Here’s to hoping this late-night item makes its way to Southern California and the rest of the States soon.
